Mega UNTOLD Dubai Festival and Armin van Buuren Launch Exclusive Show from the Tallest Building on the Planet, Burj Khalifa, Setting Two World Records

UNTOLD, one of the world’s largest festivals makes history

The festival is making its debut in the city of the future, Dubai, in February 2024, at Expo City Dubai. For the launch of UNTOLD Dubai, the organizers, together with the world’s number 1 trance music DJ, Armin van Buuren, have created an exclusive show on Burj Khalifa, the tallest building on the planet.

Armin van Buuren on Burj Khalifa is the first set performed at the greatest height on the world’s tallest building, and the first show to utilize the largest LED screen on Earth.

Ranked in the top five DJs globally for 21 consecutive years, voted DJ of the Year in electronic music five times, and the number 1 DJ in the trance genre, Armin van Buuren mixed on the 149th floor of the impressive Burj Khalifa building.


The filming of this show was truly spectacular and an extraordinary effort for the entire team involved in this unique project.

The video team recorded 20 Terabytes of data using 18 4K video cameras. Ten cameras captured incredible shots from the famous Burj Khalifa building, while eight cameras filmed the desert in the golden light of sunset.

Four drones flew at over 830 meters in height, capturing breathtaking imagery and showcasing the splendor of the world and the most incredible DJ show ever created on the planet.

The historic 41-minute set is a masterpiece of music and cinematography, demonstrating the artistry of Armin van Buuren and the vision of the UNTOLD creators. For 41 minutes, fans can embark on a unique musical and personal journey while witnessing a spectacle of music, light shows, lasers, and projections on the tallest building in the world, accompanied by the largest LED screen ever used in a show.


Supported by the Ministry of Economy and Tourism of the United Arab Emirates and in partnership with Expo City Dubai, UNTOLD Dubai is ready to become a new attraction on the international entertainment map.
