UNTOLD The 3rd Best Festival in the World

The UNTOLD Festival originated from a dream to create a spectacular event in Romania, showcasing the country’s unique charm and earning a spot among the world’s best festivals. This dream materialized in 2015 when Cluj-Napoca, designated the European Youth Capital, hosted the inaugural festival. The hard-working team behind UNTOLD, which won the Best Major Festival in Europe after its first edition, turned their vision into reality.

The festival is known for its standout moments, including special collaborations, surprise guest appearances, and unique stage productions that leave a lasting impression on attendees. The 2023 edition was a truly remarkable experience, solidifying UNTOLD‘s status as the third-best festival worldwide and the second-best in Europe, trailing only Tomorrowland.
