A music festival in Romania, is offering free admission to those who agree to donate blood.

The Untold festival taking place in Transylvania, will encourage more blood donors to come forward with their “pay with blood” campaign.

The campaign posters show a vampire connected to a blood bag.

The festival director said that the campaign is appropriate as the country faces a severe shortage of blood in medical facilities.

Festival goers who sign up to become blood donors, will receive discounts online, and those who appear in person at centers in Bucharest and Cluj, will be given free tickets on the spot in exchange for two pints of blood.

The campaign is being run in conjunction with National Blood Transfusion Institute of Romania. On the first day of the campaign, 45 people have come forward to donate blood.
