Legendary trance producer Armin van Buuren has always had a special connection with the UNTOLD Festival in Romania. This year, he was chosen to produce the official anthem for the festival along with Avian Grays. The two producers unleashed the track "Something Real" featuring vocals by Jordan Shaw. It truly conveys the magic found at the four-day event.
The anthem is a beautiful trance ballad with idyllic pianos and guitars strung with precision to Shaw's vocals. The lyrics describe that magical feeling when you meet your perfect match. AvB is known to have a strong connection to his crowd, and with a track like this you know fans will be swooning. For him, the crowd is that perfect match.
He doesn't stop there. He will be performing at UNTOLD Festival 2019 with the longest main stage live set ever. The set will land on his very own dedicated day: "Armin UNTOLD day." If that doesn't scream legendary status we don't know what does.
