BLACK COFFEE, the DJ named "Man of the Year" in 2023, completes the lineup of the 2024 edition of the Untold festival



Awaited with excitement every summer by fans from over 100 countries of the world, UNTOLD has reconfirmed its status as a top festival, managing to offer unique experiences in each edition. Organizers announce a new name to the festival lineup, Grammy Award-winning artist, DJ and producer of South African origin, Black Coffee.

With outstanding talent and an unconventional approach to electronic music, Black Coffee is one of the most respected DJ/producers in the underground culture. In 2023, he climbed 14 places in the DJ Mag Top 100, where he ranked 25th.

In just a few years he became one of the most visible DJs globally, with residencies in the world's biggest clubs, Hï Ibiza or The Wynn (Las Vegas), but also with live appearances at the biggest festivals, over 150 events in one year, details that cemented his status as an icon in the electronic music industry. Black Coffee broke musical barriers, managing to combine, in his songs, traditional African percussion and techno sound, the result being a new style in electronic music, "Afropolitan House".

At the end of 2023, Black Coffee was named "Man Of The Year" by the British publication GQ, had the first sold-out show by a South African artist in Madison Square Garden and was awarded a Grammy Award in the category "Best Dance/Electronic Music Album" for "Subconsciously". Recently, Black Coffee also produced Drake's 7th studio album, "Honestly, Nevermind" and took on the role of executive music producer on the movie "God Is A DJ" directed by Hicham Hajji.

Black Coffee's uniqueness is also reflected in the way he dresses, he uses outfits that give him a distinctive and refined look as well as his DJ sets, for the sold-out show in Madison Square Garden he hired the fashion designer Mike Amiri who created a custom outfit for her. After the huge success of the event in New York, Black Coffee was invited as a speaker at Harvard Business College in Boston.
