The last night of the anniversary edition of Neversea, the most beautiful and colorful festival organized on a beach in Europe, was unique and provided incredible moments for over 70,000 fans. National and international artists and DJs delivered amazing performances.


Neversea Festival managed to offer a perfect mix of musical genres, and over the 4 days of the festival, 277,000 fans enjoyed the musical diversity, the sea, the sunrise, and memorable experiences, alongside friends and the 150+ artists in the four-day festival lineup. “LOCO CON NEVERSEA” could describe the live performance of one of the most anticipated artists in this edition’s lineup, Colombian J Balvin, who delivered a perfect show.

The tens of thousands of fans at the mainstage enjoyed every moment, singing and dancing like a true “Latino gang.” Balvin interacted with the audience throughout and invited a Neversea festival fan on stage to perform “LA CANCIÓN” (J Balvin & Bad Bunny) together.

“Here, I feel at home; I have the feeling that I am Romanian and could live here. Thank you, and I love you!” These were the words J Balvin addressed to the Neversea festival fans. As in every live performance, the Colombian artist signed his famous sports shoe and then gave it to a fan in the audience.

As a token of appreciation for the festival fans, J Balvin premiered a new song that he will release as an official single, and the audience went wild. Everyone at the mainstage requested an encore, and Balvin responded affirmatively. He performed the song he collaborated on with Bad Bunny and Cardi B, the single “I Like It,” which has over 1.7 billion streams on Spotify.

Another moment that took the beach party to another level was Salvatore Ganacci’s set. A nonconformist artist, the Swede was the “splash of color” at the anniversary edition of Neversea Festival. It was not just a DJ set; it was a visual spectacle, and Ganacci’s dance moves and jokes brought bursts of laughter. Currently on a promotional tour for his new album, “Take Me To America,” Salvatore included his new single, “Your Mother,” in his mainstage live performance.

Techno legend Paul Kalkbrenner managed to mesmerize his fans. A 90-minute live set, an emotionally charged journey through underground techno culture, and the audience enjoyed every beat. Everyone sang along when Kalkbrenner included his iconic production “Sky and Sand” in his live set. It was an authentic moment of joy for the German DJ and the tens of thousands of people at the mainstage.

At the end of the show, Paul Kalkbrenner bowed before the Neversea fans, and due to their requests, he remained on stage for an encore.

Each of the four days of Neversea Festival brought joy to the fans who enjoyed the artists performing in Romania for the first time. American rapper Lil Uzi Vert was received with great enthusiasm by the Neversea fans. With a live show including his most well-known songs from his discography, such as “XO Tour Lif3” (which holds a record number of plays on Spotify with over 1.9 billion streams), “Suicide Doors,” and “20 Min,” as well as songs from his latest album, “Pink Tape.” Lil Uzi Vert was impressed by the Neversea festival fans, who presented him with an unexpected gift: a drawing featuring the artwork of his new album. “Romania, you’re amazing!” This is how Lil Uzi Vert chose to thank the tens of thousands of fans at the mainstage.

Alok, the DJ ranked 4th in the Top 100 DJ Mag, was one of the premieres offered by the organizers of Neversea for the anniversary edition. Making his first appearance at the festival on the Black Sea coast, Alok had a surprise for the festival fans; he invited INNA to join him on stage, and together they performed their hit song “It Don’t Matter.” The moment was excellently received by the fans, with INNA carrying the national flag and singing alongside them. “Neversea, you’re wonderful, Romania, I love you!” These were the words with which Alok concluded his mainstage set.

Australian Timmy Trumpet took the festival fun to the next level. With a combination of classical music and EDM Big Room, Trumpet premiered his latest single, “Eternety,” at Neversea.

The organizers of Neversea prepared a live act for each of the festival’s four days. American artist Lil Pump, the headliner of the second day of fun on the Black Sea coast, was impressed by the reception from the Romanian audience, for whom he prepared a special show. The rapper performed with the audience from the first to the last song and thanked the fans in Romania at the end.

Ranked among the top 10 DJs in the world, Steve Aoki was eagerly awaited by the Neversea fans. The American DJ and producer has a special connection with the festival. Aoki’s energy took the fun to the next level on the second day of the Neversea Festival. The DJ had 20 cakes prepared for the famous “Cake Me!” moment.

Nigerian artist, composer, and producer CKay came to Romania for the first time, on the third day of the biggest beach festival in Europe, Neversea. CKay connected with the Romanian audience and performed “Love Nwantiti” together with them.

One of the most anticipated DJs at the Neversea mainstage was the master of future house, Don Diablo. The Dutch artist, one of the most innovative artists in the electronic music scene, was extremely excited to reunite with the fans in Romania and abroad. As a sign of gratitude for their constant support, he prepared a special show for them. “Hello, Neversea! I love you and thank you!” This was Don Diablo’s message.

The fifth edition of Neversea Festival was full of color, premieres, tears of joy, bursts of laughter, dancing until sunrise. It was about the greatest group of friends who sang alongside their favorite artists on each of the festival’s six stages. Neversea 2023 was the place where, together, we built new memories.
