Romania - Staged in the city of Cluj, which is in the heart of Transylvania, the Untold festival is a mixture of sights, sounds, smells and adventures. It’s a music festival created to amaze the hundreds of thousands of visitors that descend upon the city each year for four days of music and fun.
This year’s festival was held from 1-4 August and attended by more than 400,000 music lovers. The line-up of included Robbie Williams, Afrojack, Armin Van Buuren, Steve Aoki, Nicky Romero, Bastille and Fedde Le Grand.
The centrepiece of this year’s Untold stage featured a giant Wizard’s head that weighed in at 13.2t. To support this massive weight, Untold needed a strong truss span that could not only handle this 13.2t point load, but also be stable enough to withstand wind loads generated on the large surface area of the head. The new Steel Truss line from Milos was chosen for the job.
The delivered solution was the extreme heavy-duty S-RTW steel truss (1450 x 770 mm), which is manufactured from ultra high strength steel alloy that is three times stronger than standard steel alloy. Unlike traditional forks that provide a single direction connection point, it features convenient double fork connectors for multi-directional connection points, together with end braces with 22mm holes for lateral connections and pinned connectors for increased strength.
The truss was used to construct spans that supported the gigantic wizard head and was rated to withstand wind loads with speeds of up to 90km/h.
