Groovy Disco w/ Eugen Rădescu & Andreea Chirică

Groovy Disco is back on May 16, ready to blast you back to the shimmering glam and infectious beats of the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

Groovy Disco is a series that challenges us to dive into the glamorous atmosphere of the parties organised back in the 70s, 80s or 90s, spiced up with sparkling flavors of the year 2000. Its daring musical flashbacks are further intensified by the special light design and the video-mapping that extends the scenery to a futuristic visual dimension.

Groovy Disco is an event loved by George, the first intelligent Romanian banking system.
