Youth Cancer Survivors meet Armin Van Buuren, Afrojack and more at Untold Festival
Just some time ago, Untold Festival came back to Cluj-Napoca, Romania, for its fourth edition which united thousands of electronic dance lovers for an outstanding music weekend. Across the weekend some 300,000+ gadders visited the music festival which was crowned Best Major Festival during its debut edition back in 2015. Untold Festival saw breathtaking performances from the likes of Dutch legend Tiësto and Swedish star Alesso as well as many other major music producers all accumulating to a weekend of unforgettable memories.

There were plenty of unforgettable memories for a group of youth cancer survivors who were presented with the chance to meet some of their favourite music producers backstage during the Untold Festival. Charity Youth Cancer Europe organised a social media competition for its network of cancer survivors to fly out to the festival and meet DJs including Armin van Buuren, Kygo, Afrojack, and Danny Avila. Backstage the music producers met with the cancer survivors who are aged 18-26 and represented five different countries including Spain, Northern Ireland, and Poland. Afrojack met the group backstage on the first night, while van Buuren was happy to pose for pictures before his closing 7-hour set. Danny Avila wore his Fuck Cancer bracelet during his set, a gift from the survivors.

YCE founder and CEO Katie Rizvi said in a press release:
Once again, we were lucky to secure the opportunity to invite youth cancer survivors from across the continent to meet some of their heroes at the incredible Untold Festival in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Afrojack, Kygo, Danny Avila and Armin Van Buuren took the time to speak to each of our guests individually, take photos and sign autographs for them. These are memories that they will cherish forever and were always over the moon to bring these experiences to them. A huge thank you goes out from us to the DJs, as well as to the team at Untold for all their help in making this happen.
