UNTOLD Festival has revealed plans for its Middle East premiere in February 2024, set to take place in Expo City Dubai, UAE.
To mark this ground-breaking moment, UNTOLD collaborated with celebrated Dutch DJ Armin Van Buuren and the iconic Burj Khalifa. Ready for a record-breaking performance on the world’s tallest edifice? The entire building transformed into a colossal LED backdrop for the spectacle. Enthusiasts can catch this record-setting special on screens later this summer.
While the full lineup of DJs for this pioneering super festival remains under wraps, Van Buuren, a stalwart of UNTOLD since its 2015 inception in Romania, guarantees a memorable experience.
Reflecting on his bond with the festival, Van Buuren remarked, “The synergy between me, UNTOLD, and its ardent followers is unparalleled. My vitality peaks when I’m performing at UNTOLD, and I eagerly anticipate the energy of the upcoming UNTOLD Dubai.”
“We are impressed by Dubai’s visionary leadership and ambition,” said UNTOLD’s founder and CEO, Bogdan Buta. “We believe we share these qualities, making it the perfect place to further showcase UNTOLD’s greatness to the world. And having the best location, Expo City Dubai as our home, you can only imagine what follows. The rest is Untold. You have to live it yourself.”
Ahmed Al Khaja, the CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), opined, “Showcasing UNTOLD at Expo City Dubai exemplifies Dubai’s prowess in hosting grand-scale events, bolstering its reputation as a global events mecca. This aligns with our visionary leaders’ aspirations to establish Dubai as a premier destination for living, working, and visiting.”
On his historic performance, Van Buuren exclaimed, “I’m ecstatic about performing on the Burj Khalifa’s pinnacle, and the prospect of setting dual world records through my passion — serenading my cherished fans.”
Originating in Romania, UNTOLD Festival stands as the nation’s premier electronic music fiesta, annually gracing the Cluj Arena in Cluj-Napoca. Over the years, it has magnetized eminent electronic music personalities like David Guetta, Major Lazer, Tiesto, Don Diablo, and Oliver Heldens. The magical festival’s eighth edition marked down performances from the likes of Imagine Dragons, Martin Garrix and Salvatore Ganacci, who light up its mainstage and captivate its stadium-sized crowd.
