UNTOLD, a European EDM leading festival running in Cluj-Napoca between September 9 - 12, is the first event in Romania where access will be allowed exclusively based on the EU digital COVID-19 certificate or on rapid antigen testing, the organizers announced."This way, UNTOLD organizers keep their commitment to host one of the safest events in Europe, which has everything it takes for setting a global model.

"Those who get a fast antigen tests in the centers or clinics of the UNTOLD festival authorized medical providers automatically receive after testing the bracelet proving the veracity of the test and the negative result. These guests no longer need to present the EU digital COVID-19 certificate at the entrance to the festival, but they must carry proof of the negative result of the test, in physical or electronic format, as well as their ID card throughout the event. The centers and clinics of the authorized medical providers will be available in the next period on the untold.com webpage," the release states.
