In an unprecedented collaboration with legendary DJ Armin van Buuren, UNTOLD has shattered not one, but two world records while presenting an unimaginable performance, leaving audiences in awe.
The world-record special took place at the majestic Burj Khalifa, the tallest building on the planet, where the entire structure served as a magnificent LED backdrop for the most unique show the world has ever seen.

The filming process itself was also an extraordinary feat. To ensure every moment of this magnificent performance was captured flawlessly, the UNTOLD team utilized a staggering total of eighteen cameras. Ten cameras were dedicated solely to capturing the glittering Burj Khalifa in all its grandeur, while eight cameras were strategically placed in the desert to showcase the stunning landscape alongside four advanced drones that soared over 830 meters in the air, providing viewers with a majestic view of this mind-blowing show. A helicopter was also used to capture the magnitude of this historic event from the sky.

The forty-one-minute-long video of the performance is a cinematic masterpiece, showcasing the exceptional talent and creativity of both UNTOLD and the incredible Dutch DJ, Armin van Buuren. The endeavor resulted in an astounding 20 TB of digital data, proving the magnitude and scale of this spectacle.
