Armin van Buuren’s Historic DJ Set at Burj Khalifa: A Preview to UNTOLD Dubai

Armin van Buuren, the globally-celebrated Dutch DJ, recently amazed fans with a record-breaking performance at the iconic Burj Khalifa. This 40-minute showcase from the 149th floor, in collaboration with UNTOLD Dubai, is now available for streaming on his YouTube channel.

During this event, Armin van Buuren not only marked the promotion for the upcoming UNTOLD Dubai music festival, but he also set two remarkable world records: the highest-altitude DJ set and the largest LED screen display used at an event. The show was a cinematic spectacle, harnessing the power of 18 cameras, four cutting-edge drones and a majestic helicopter.

As UNTOLD wraps up its eighth successful edition in Romania, all eyes are on its debut in the Middle East. Slated for February 2024 in Expo City Dubai, UAE, the festival promises an unforgettable experience. Although the artist line-up remains a surprise, Armin Van Buuren, a key figure at UNTOLD since its 2015 inception in Romania, hints at an unparalleled music treat for fans.

Talking about his association with UNTOLD, Armin van Buuren mentioned, “The deep bond I share with UNTOLD and its dedicated fans is special. The vibe at UNTOLD is unlike any other, and I’m excited for what’s in store at UNTOLD Dubai.”

Endorsing this sentiment, Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), commented on the significance of such events in Dubai. “Hosting mega-events like UNTOLD at Expo City Dubai reaffirms our city’s capability in managing large-scale international events. Our goal aligns with the vision of making Dubai a leading hub for tourism, residence, and global business.”
