12 photos showcasing the enchanted utopia of UNTOLD Festival
A weekend of dance music hedonism at Europe’s largest festival back since the pandemic began
UNTOLD Festival only comes once a year, but when it does, it returns bigger and better than the last.
From September 9 to 12 this year, UNTOLD bounced back at full force after two years with a monumental 260,000 people heading through the Transylvanian site and into its prodigious arena. Tucked amidst the Romanian forest of Cluj-Napoca, UNTOLD spills out across an enormous site welcoming in thousands of electronic music fans each day.

Elsewhere on the techno and house filled line-up the likes of Amelie Lens, Jamie Jones, Loco Dice, Rhadoo, Pan-Pot, Paul Kalkbrenner, Tale Of Us and Nina Kraviz brought heavy-hitting sounds to the Galaxy Stage.
A drum 'n' bass takeover on the Alchemy Stage saw Netsky, Wilkinson, Rudimental, Chase & Status and more letting loose, completing the bill for a perfect hedonistic weekend for dance music fans.
