UNTOLD Music Festival Shatters Records with Epic Dubai Event

In a groundbreaking display of music and innovation, the renowned UNTOLD music festival, recognized as one of the world's largest, has etched its name into history by setting not one, but two extraordinary world records in Dubai. The festival collaborated with the legendary Dutch DJ, Armin van Buuren, to create a mesmerizing performance that unfolded on the soaring 149th floor of the iconic Burj Khalifa. This monumental event marked the convergence of music and architecture as the towering masterpiece became a pulsating LED canvas, synchronized with the rhythmic beats of the DJ.

The awe-inspiring 41-minute performance showcased the seamless fusion of music and visual artistry, delivering an unparalleled sensory experience to the audience. The breathtaking footage of this remarkable event is scheduled for release on YouTube this Wednesday, promising viewers a chance to relive the magic.

Capturing this remarkable feat demanded an equally exceptional filming endeavor. The dedicated UNTOLD team harnessed the power of 18 cameras, strategically positioned to capture every electrifying moment. Among these, ten cameras were exclusively focused on capturing the radiant splendor of the Burj Khalifa, portraying its grandeur in exquisite detail. Additionally, eight cameras were thoughtfully stationed across the desert landscape, encapsulating the natural beauty that provided the backdrop to this monumental event.

To offer viewers an unprecedented perspective, four advanced drones soared to breathtaking heights of over 830 meters, offering a captivating bird's-eye view of the unfolding spectacle. A helicopter joined this aerial dance, capturing the entire event from the skies above. The result of this cinematic endeavor amounted to a staggering 20 terabytes of digital data, a testament to the magnitude and intricacy of the production.

As a precursor to an exhilarating entertainment revolution, UNTOLD is poised to make its Dubai debut in February 2024, hosted at Expo City Dubai. In a remarkable partnership with Expo City Dubai and bolstered by the support of Dubai's Department of Economy and Tourism, UNTOLD Dubai is all set to redefine entertainment in this vibrant city. This expansion presents an unprecedented opportunity for music enthusiasts and festival-goers to immerse themselves in the pulsating energy and captivating experiences that UNTOLD is renowned for.

 UNTOLD music festival's collaboration with Armin van Buuren has not only shattered world records but has also illuminated the future of entertainment. The fusion of music and architectural marvels, showcased through the Burj Khalifa performance, has set the stage for an eagerly anticipated UNTOLD Dubai debut in 2024. As the festival continues to push boundaries and redefine entertainment norms, it promises to provide an unforgettable experience for all who seek a taste of the extraordinary.
