The organizers and event staff delivered far beyond expectations. What happened on the festival grounds went beyond magic, and will always be a part of every person in attendance at the majestical extravaganza.
The spectacular lineup was lead by headliners Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Robbie Williams, Bastille, James Arthur, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nicky Romero, Don Diablo, Tale of Us, Solomun, Boris Brejcha, Paul Kalkbrenner, Black Coffee and the legendary Armin van Buuren, who released the official anthem for UNTOLD Chapter 5, “Something Real“, earlier last month.
Armin van Buuren has been a key ingredient to the dance music scene as a whole and is the undisputed trance king. To celebrate his love for the music, culture, fans, and life, he played a super-extended seven-hour set at the amazing UNTOLD festival, and demonstrated what makes him such an elite and celebrated artist. While Armin was a major highlight, it was just one part of the adventure, there were many moments spread across the massive festival stomping grounds.
