Untold Festival is by far the music event of the year in Romania and it quickly became one of the most important in Eastern Europe. The festival started in 2015 and it takes place near one of Romania’s coolest and most diverse cities, Cluj-Napoca. The festival won the “Best Major Festival” in its first year at the European Festival Awards 2015.
A comparison with other Eastern European festivals when it comes to prices and acts making an appearance on stage Untold is winning more and more ground and it could soon rival similar events in Western Europe. Underground and mainstream acts share the platform in uniting people with the help of music.
When it Untold 2020 taking place?
Untold takes place yearly in summer and the dates for 2020 are between the 30th of July and 2nd of August. Unlike music festivals that take place in spring or early summer, Untold is scheduled for the later part of the hot season which means there is a higher chance it could still take place.
Many other festivals have been rescheduled for that time period as well since it is hoped that the pandemic will be somewhat contained by then and we’ll be able to return to our daily lives. Researchers are hopeful some sort of treatment (not a vaccine, just to be clear) could be out by mid-summer so here’s hoping for the predictions to be true!
Who is singing at Untold 2020?
In February, the organizers announced the first acts to confirm their appearance at Untold with other names to be confirmed later if things go to plan. As mentioned, Untold Festival managed to combine mainstream acts with underground ones so you can have your pick especially if you go with a group and you don’t all listen to the same music.
David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike plus Martin Garrix are among the acts that are returning this year for the festival. Since Untold is mostly focused on EDM, you can expect many similar acts to be making an appearance here. Others confirmed are Afrojack, Steve Aoki, DJ Snake, Eric Pryz, Alesso, Lost Frequencies and Above & Beyond.
Among the pop acts expected to perform this year, we can confirm The Pussycat Dolls, The Script, and Iggy Azalea. The techno stage will be ruled by Charlotte de Witte, Richie Hawtin, and Paul Kalkbrenner. Other important acts that could be named are Borgore, Wilkinson, and Netsky.
What acts have performed at Untold previously?
When Untold was first announced in 2014, nobody knew anything about it. You could buy really cheap tickets in advance even without knowing what some of the acts appearing were or you could wait for the confirmation of the acts and buy more expensive tickets. This was risky for both those buying the tickets but also for the festival organizers.
Since then, Untold keeps a similar formula and you can buy the cheapest tickets when the line-up hasn’t been announced yet. But with such big names making appearances every year, it’s very unlikely you’ll be disappointed. In 2015 alone, Avicii, David Guetta, Sasha, Fedde Le Grand, Tinie Tempah, and even Boney M performed.
In recent years, Untold has brought together other superstars on the same stage such as Jason Derulo, Robbie Williams, Tiesto, Don Diablo, Ellie Goldwing, Faithless, Hurts, Parov Stelar, MØ, Labrinth, Pendulum, Diplo, James Arthur, Charli XCX, Scooter, Bastille, Marshmello, The Chainsmokers, and The Prodigy.
If you are ready to party in late July/early August, then there is probably no better place than the Untold Festival 2020.
