Afrojack, Garri, Ozcan bring four-day Untold electro-dance marathon to an end

The four-day Untold festival in Romania’s central city of Cluj-Napoca, attended by 150 artists and tens of thousands of spectators, ended this morning with concerts staged by some of the moment’s best DJs – Afrojack, Martin Garrix and Ummet Ozcan.

Opening the last day on the main stage of the event was Suie Paparude. The band’s three barefooted singers performed their hits “A fost odata,” “Pentru inimi” and “Cea mai buna zi.” Next to light up the atmosphere was British Labrinth, playing “Fragile,” and “Beneath your beautiful.”

Labrinth told the spectators that this was his first time performing at Untold and also his first time in Romania, but he can say all is wonderful.

Next to mount the stage was British Ella Eyre, the winner of the 2014 Brit Award for British Single of the Year, “Waiting all night long.”

The Parov Stelar band put on an excellent show that combined musical instruments with electronic rhythms. The public sang along and danced to the tunes of the Austrians’ “Lost in Amsterdam” and “Catgroove.”

Belgian DJ Lost Frequencies mixed up older hits like “Baby don’t hurt me,” “Jump,” “Satisfaction,” and “I feel good.”

Sound got louder and the show livelier as Dutch music producer and DJ Afrojack took the floor for more than one and a half hours, warming up the public for their meeting with Martin Garrix, aka the young savant of electronic music. Martjin Garritsen by his real name, Garrix was voted world’s third best DJ in the DJ MAG TOP 100 ranking.

Just 20 years old, Martin Garrix has stricken it rich, having won many international prizes and owning a personal airplane that flies him to festival venues around the world. His most important awards so far are DJ of the Year at the 2013 Dance Music Awards, and Best Electronic at the 2015 MTV European Music Awards.

He told a news conference before staging his show at Untold that his success is due to his entire team. He also said that what he knew about Romania was Dracula, adding that the Untold public was fantastic.

Included among the songs he mixed was his newest track “In the name of love.”

Dutch Turkish DJ Ummet Ozcan brought the four-day electro-dance marathon to an end.

Expected to perform on Sunday, Dub FX had to cancel his show because of the airliner that was supposed to fly him to Cluj-Napoca.

 

Immigration Police say 30,000 foreigners attended Untold Festival in Cluj-Napoca

 

Officers of the Romanian Immigration Police were on duty at the Untold Festival in the central Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca, where nearly 30,000 foreigners attended.

“During the four days of the festival, immigration police officers were tasked with preventing breaches of the legislation under their jurisdiction. Likewise, they joined other forces of the Interior Ministry in an integrated system to conduct joint actions to prevent antisocial incidents and immediately identify any foreigners who might commit them, as well as to take steps to ensure public security,” the General Immigration Inspectorate (IGI) said Monday in a press statement.

The Cluj immigration police officers are said to have been stationed in the inner part of the festival’s venue, adjacent areas as well as the Unirii Square, where a stage had been mounted where access was free.

“No special incidents committed by foreigners were reported for the duration of the festival. Contributing to the successful accomplishment of the mission entrusted were the involved bodies as well as the citizens of Cluj-Napoca, whom we want to thank,” says IGI.
