Taking place in the 30,000-capacity Cluj Arena and the surrounding Central Park, UNTOLD festival brings an incredible line-up of electronic music talent to Cluj-Napoca, Romania (1-4 August) every year for the country’s biggest dance festival. With the first names of their 2019 edition now revealed, anticipation is high for this incredible event.
The Galaxy Stage is all about underground house and techno, with the mighty Solomun set to perform one of this epic, spellbinding sets and formidable Italian duo Tale Of Us showing why they have become one of the world’s biggest acts with their brooding, atmospheric sounds. Desolat genius Loco Dice comes correct with his minimal house and rolling tech grooves while Boris Brejcha will serve up his self-titled ‘high-tech minimal’ sound, full of intricate rhythms and subtle sounds.
The Alchemy Stage is a mecca for lovers of bass music. Record-breaking drum & bass king Andy C plays an extended set, full of his trademark double-drops and high-energy mixing. There’s more for junglist lovers as the mighty production duo Chase & Status lay down their fearsome sounds and Sub Focus and Wilkinson go back-to-back for a none-more-euphoric set. Live drum & bass comes from Austria’s incredible Camo & Krooked, bringing their huge riffs and bold melodies. Dubstep fiends are well catered for by the crazy intense sounds of Borgore and Rusko, both well known for their hard-edged, screwface-inducing bass sounds.
The Mainstage is all about the biggest names in the business doing it like no other. David Guetta needs little introduction, and his anthemic sets are legendary the world over. Martin Garrix can be counted on for eclectic sets that take in all manner of big room flavours, with huge melodies and stunning vocals, while Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike will show why they have risen to become such global sensations with their anthemic sounds.
