ULTRA SOUTH AFRICA, Africa’s largest electronic music festival, proudly announces its return to Cape Town and Johannesburg for its FIFTH consecutive year.

Boasting state-of-the-art stage setups, the world’s best DJs and an unforgettable festival experience, ULTRA South Africa has become a firm favourite of the South African music landscape over the last four years. Now, ULTRA South Africa announces their festival info for 2018, with its most competitively priced EARLY BIRD tickets ever! The registration process must be followed in order to get your hands on these early bird prices, for a limited time only, so don’t wait.

Globally, Ultra Music Festival is gearing up to celebrate its 20th anniversary at the flagship event in Miami in 2018, making next year a momentous one for the brand, with South Africa celebrating the 5th year of the local event in the same year. Meaning that the organisers will be making the 2018 festivals bigger than ever before.

The Cape Town event will be held earlier in the year, on Friday 9th February 2018, and will once again be held at the Cape Town Stadium, that iconic venue that all visitors to the Mother City know and love. The stadium is not only convenient for anyone in the city to get to and for easy access in and out, but brings a unique flavour to the event that anyone that was at the 2017 show can attest to. Not to mention the host of after-parties held around the city that are only a few minutes away from the stadium, making it that much easier to keep the ULTRA SA party going until morning!

Nasrec is THE home to ULTRA SA in Joburg, and has been since Day 1, once again in 2018 this unparalleled festival venue will play host to the largest music show the people of Gauteng know and adore! This event proves each year just how a dance music festival should look, and will be no different when Ultranauts converge on Nasrec’s gates on Saturday 10th February 2018 for yet-another mind-blowing electronic music experience.

Registration for early bird tickets to the 2018 shows will be done via Ultra Passport on www.ultrasouthafrica.com, so please complete this process as soon as possible or you will miss out on early bird prices.

Ultra Passport is the global Ultra programme recently launched to reward loyal Ultranauts that attend events around the world. It allows passport holders to earn points that place them in various tiers, and within which they earn various rewards. Benefits include access to early bird tickets, separate festival entrances, access to lounge areas, and more depending on the passport tier.

Points are earned for enrolling in the programme and attending events, and points valid for 25 calendar months, so it makes sense for SA Ultranauts to register now and start earning!

Once the early bird tickets have run out we will roll straight over into Tier1, still an incredibly priced ticket considering what value you get for the money, so visit www.ultrasouthafrica.com and register now!

About ULTRA Worldwide™

ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ IS THE GLOBAL EDITION OF THE WORLD’S PREMIER ELECTRONIC MUSIC EVENT, ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL®.

The ULTRA brand in relation to live events was founded in 1997 in Miami by Executive Producer, President & CEO, Russell Faibisch, who began by producing electronic music events which led to the inaugural Ultra Music Festival® in 1999 on the sands of Miami Beach.

The internationally renowned festival, which has taken place every March since its inception, celebrated its nineteenth anniversary on March 24-26, 2017 by bringing over 165,000 music enthusiasts to the sold out waterfront event in the heart of the City of Miami. Ultra Music Festival®, recently voted the world’s #1 Festival by DJ Mag for the second consecutive year, returns to Bayfront Park for its twentieth annual edition on March 23-25, 2018.

Choosing to follow a unique and creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused on its true love for music, artists and fans alike, the ULTRA and ULTRA Worldwide™ brands represent not only the world’s biggest and most successful remaining INDEPENDENT electronic music festival brand, but also the most international festival brand in the world. Event organizers continue to transport the unrivaled experience from the Miami flagship festival to an ever-growing number of destinations and Ultranauts all over the globe.

Over the past nineteen years, thousands of the world’s most iconic DJs, producers and live acts have mesmerized audiences with awe-inspiring sets at ULTRA festivals in ARGENTINA, BALI, BRASIL, CHILE, CROATIA, IBIZA, JAPAN, KOREA, SINGAPORE, SOUTH AFRICA and of course MIAMI, as well as ROAD TO ULTRA® events in BOLIVIA, CHILE, COLOMBIA, HONG KONG, JAPAN, KOREA, MACAU, PARAGUAY, PERU, THE PHILIPPINES, PUERTO RICO, SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND and the USA. Each new global edition has been founded on the same successful recipe that has been perfected over nineteen years in Miami, combining the most diverse electronic talent with the most technologically advanced, large-scale festival productions in the world.

The ULTRA brands have pioneered the live stream experience with ‘ULTRA LIVE’ (with over 650 million live stream and recorded set views from Ultra Music Festival Miami since 2013) and the audio broadcasting platform ‘UMF RADIO’ (syndicated to FM Radio in over 62 countries and reaching more than 22 million listeners weekly). Also UMF FILMS’ collaboration with FINAL KID has seen some of the most visually breathtaking festival aftermovies in the music space, including a feature-length documentary exploring the explosion of dance music, entitled CAN U FEEL IT™, which was premiered on the red carpet at the Klipsch Amphitheater in Miami in 2012 and was exhibited in over 500 theaters across the Unites States.

2016 and 2017 have seen the ULTRA and ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ brands continue to push the boundaries even further, bringing an unparalleled combination of cutting edge productions and the world’s best electronic acts back to previous strongholds and new frontiers across the globe. With the SOLD-OUT edition of ULTRA Brasil®, ULTRA Singapore™ having become a full scale two-day festival, RESISTANCE’s debut standalone South America Tour, and the debut of ROAD TO ULTRA®’s Hong Kong, 2016 was the brand’s most successful year to date. A RESISTANCE summer residency at Privilege Ibiza is confirmed for 2017, while ULTRA China will debut in Shanghai on September 9-10, 2017. Also in 2017, two ROAD TO ULTRA® events will take place in New Delhi and India. ULTRA® have revealed further expansion into México October 6-7 of this year, and Australia for 2018. The ULTRA brand will be present in at least TWENTY-FOUR COUNTRIES across SIX CONTINENTS worldwide by the end of 2018.
