Da, si eu citisem inainte multe articole despre Untold si chiar nu puteam sa inteleg de ce nimeni nu reusea sa exprime in cuvinte experienta traita acolo. Acum, la o saptamana dupa terminarea editiei de anul acesta, care s-a intamplat sa fie si prima pentru mine, inca nu pot sa ma gandesc la o forma de a-mi impartasi amintirile facute in cele 4 nopti de festival. Sincer, cred ca asta e si partea cea mai faina din toata experienta UNTOLD, faptul ca nu poti sa redai in cuvinte tot ce traiesti acolo.

Un lucru clar pe care pot sa il spun insa, este acela ca UNTOLD este mult mai mult decat un festival de muzica, pentru 4 zile s-a transformat intr-un stil de viata. Este despre oameni frumosi din diferite parti ale lumii*, despre cum oboseala parca dispare atata timp cat canti si dansezi, despre mancare buna, despre cum beat-urile devin o parte din tine, despre cum iti vibreaza inima atunci cand iti auzi melodia preferata, despre multime, despre lumini, despre un set de 5.5 ore care iti da intreaga existenta peste cap cu mult dupa terminarea lui, in cateva cuvinte: chiar este vorba despre magie.

Yes, I used to read articles about Untold before and I couldn’t manage to understand how no one was able to describe the experience they had there. Now, one week after the 2017 festival, which happened to be my first edition, I can’t find a way to share the memories I made during those 4 nights. Honestly, I think this is also the best part of the UNTOLD experience, the fact that you are not able to describe in words what you live there.

Despite that, a certain fact I can sustain it’s that UNTOLD it’s much more than a music festival, for 4 days it became a lifestyle. It’s about beautiful people from all around the world, about how the tiredness disappears as long as you sing and dance, about good food, about how the beats become part of you, about how your heart vibrates when you hear your favorite song, about the crowd, about the lights, about a 5.5 hours set that changes your life perspective long after it finishes, in a few words: it’s really about magic.

Acum ca v-am introdus putin in universul UNTOLD, o sa va spun la ce artisti de pe Main Stage am ajuns (pentru ca acolo am stat 80% din timp) si cum a fost la unii dintre ei.

Tip: foloseste aplicatia Untold pentru a vedea programul fiecarei scene si hotaraste-te dinainte la ce artisti vrei sa ajungi pentru a salva timp.

Ziua 1: Axwell Λ IngrossoMØ, Hardwell si Dannic. Surpriza serii a fost cu siguranta Dannic, de care – rusine mie – nu mai auzisem inaintea festivalului. A reusit sa creeze o atmosfera wow chiar daca a mixat pentru prima oara in fata unui asa numar mare de oameni. Big up!

Ziua 2: Ellie Goulding, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Don Diablo, Tujamo, Lost Frequencies.

Ziua 3: Hurts, Marshmellow, Armin Van Buuren. A treia zi de festival a fost pe departe preferata mea. Am inceput seara cu Hurts, pe care ii mai vazusem in urma cu cativa ani pe cand au venit in Bucuresti, dar care au reusit din nou sa imi faca pilea de gaina pentru o ora intreaga. Marshmellow a creat atmosfera perfecta dinaintea setului magic de 5.5 ore a lui Armin Van Buuren despre care, sincer, nu mai am cuvinte. Am trecut prin 100+ emotii in timpul acestuia si ma bucur nespus ca am stat pana la final.

Ziua 4: John Newman, Alan Walker, Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki. Tot ce pot spune e ca ploaia nu a mai insemnat nimic odata ce ti-ai dat seama ca “you are not alone”.

P.S: John Newman – un one man show cum nu am mai vazut pana acum.

Dupa cum am spus mai sus, mare parte a timpului mi-am petrecut-o la Main Stage, dar nu trebuie neglijate celelalte scene care au aratat parca scoase din povesti. De asemenea, tot perimetrul parcului a fost plin de pop-upuri care mai de care, printre care pierdeai notiunea timpului daca nu erai atent.

Now that I introduced you a little to the UNTOLD universe, I will enumerate the Main Stage performances I got to see (as 80% of the time I was there) and some things that surprised me.

Tip: Use the Untold app in order to see the schedule for every stage and decide what you want to attend, this will save you a lot of time.

Day 1: Axwell Λ IngrossoMØ, Hardwell and Dannic. The surprise performance was definitely Dannic, shame on me I didn’t hear about him before. He managed to create a wow atmosphere even though he had never mixed in front of as many people before. Big up!

Day 2: Ellie Goulding, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Don Diablo, Tujamo, Lost Frequencies.

Day 3: Hurts, Marshmellow, Armin Van Buuren. The third day was my absolute favorite one. The night started with Hurts, who I’ve seen some years before in Bucharest, but who once again gave me goosebumps for one hour. Marshmellow created the perfect atmosphere before the magic 5.5 hours set who belonged to the one and only Armin Van Buuren. I sincerely have no words for his show, I am more than excited I got to witness the whole experience until the end.

Day 4: John Newman, Alan Walker, Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki.  All I can say it’s that the rain meant nothing after you find out that “you are not alone”.

P.S: John Newman – a one man show as I’ve never seen before.

As I mentioned at the begging, I spent most of the time on the Main Stage, but I didn’t forget about the other stages, which were designed fabulously. Also, all the park was filled up with all sorts pop-up stands, among which you could lose track of time if you weren’t careful, but they were definitely a go to.

Tip: the special shots from Shoteria. (you’ll thank me later)

Am ajuns la final si simt ca nu am povestit nici 30% din tot ce a insemnat fenomenul UNTOLD 2017. Nu am cum sa inchei altfel, decat cu faptul ca va doresc sa ajungeti cel putin o data in viata la Untold pentru ca este cu adevarat o experienta unica!

EN:

We got at the end of the article and I feel like I didn’t even say 30% of the story about UNTOLD 2017. I couldn’t finish without saying that I really wish you get to witness at least once in this life the Untold experience because it’s truly unique!

It’s more than you know…

 

#UNTOLD2018 see you soon!

Much love,

D.
