The 2017 edition of ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL will see its RESISTANCE concept dominate not one, but two huge stages at Bayfront Park as it grows into a festival within the festival. In addition to welcoming back Arcadia Spectacular’s imposing ‘Spider’ structure across all three days of the event, RESISTANCE will now team up with its recently announced global ambassador Carl Cox to take over the Megastructure on Friday, March 24 and Saturday, March 25. Following thirteen consecutive years of ‘Carl Cox & Friends’ inside the vaunted arena, the legend himself now introduces a brand new era as a driving force behind ULTRA’s burgeoning RESISTANCE concept.
Having unveiled a select few RESISTANCE performers in its Phase One lineup announcement on November 17 (including the U.S. return of Sasha & John Digweed together for the first time since 2010), the World’s Premier Electronic Music Festival now drops the names of thirty-one RESISTANCE acts set to descend upon Downtown Miami in just a few months time.
Arcadia’s fire-breathing Spider will welcome house and techno heavyweights including (in alphabetical order) ANNA, Chris Liebing, Dosem, Dubfire, Eats Everything, Hector, Hot Since 82, Jamie Jones, Kölsch, Maceo Plex, The Martinez Brothers, Matador, Matthias Tanzmann, Nic Fanciulli, Reboot, Seth Troxler, Technasia and wAFF.

Support comes from B. Traits, Eli & Fur, Jon Rundell and Saeed Younan.
Adding to one of the biggest Phase One announcements in the festival’s history are a host of additional headliners including (in alphabetical order) Crystal Castles, Dash Berlin, Deadmau5, Richie Hawtin and Steve Angello!
In a huge move from event organizers, and for the first time in the festival’s history (and ASOT’s history for that matter), both Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz will headline the ASOT Stage before the man himself, Armin Van Buuren, closes the gargantuan Megastructure on Sunday night.
Techno legend Richie Hawtin will be joining Carl Cox & Friends in The Megastructure on Saturday, while Dash Berlin and Steve Angello will be throwing it down on the Main Stage as only they know how. Last up from the Phase Two headliners, Crystal Castles will be returning to Ultra’s Live Stage armed with a load of brand new material, for what will no doubt be one of the highlights of the weekend.
In another Ultra first, Tiësto will play a one-off Sunset Slot at the Main Stage on Saturday, where the master-selector will no doubt bring his ever-expanding catalogue of music to the people. Two very special labels will be taking over the UMF Radio stage across the weekend, with Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings hosting some of the most exciting up and coming artists in the house scene today on Friday for the very first time, before Skrillex’s OWSLA imprint returns on Saturday to provide Ultranauts with a face full of bass.

Following its hugely successful, record-breaking second edition in February 2015, ULTRA South Africa officially returns in 2016, as it announces plans to expand the festival into a full three-day affair!
Having smashed its own record for being the largest electronic music festival in African history this year, and with an increase of 20% in attendance recorded from 2014, it can now be revealed that ULTRA South Africa, due to popular demand, will run for TWO consecutive days at Johannesburg’s Expo Centre, Nasrec on Friday, February 26 and Saturday, February 27, before returning to Cape Town on Sunday, February 28, for a finale to remember.
To celebrate, ULTRA South Africa now reveals its incredible 2015 aftermovie. Directed, produced and shot in 4K by Final Kid mastermind Charly Friedrichs, the aftermovie showcases the magnificent sights of South Africa alongside the fist-pumping sounds of the world’s biggest DJs, and the result is simply breathtaking. Kicking off with Martin Garrix reminiscing about his very first main stage festival performance at ULTRA South Africa itself back in 2014, the aftermovie follows the Dutch luminary a year on from his landmark moment, combining it with some of the incredible footage that was shot at Ostrich Farm, Cape Town and The Expo Centre, Nasrec, Johannesburg over the two mesmerizing days earlier this year. To celebrate the release, Garrix himself also decided to premiere two exclusive collaborative tracks with Matisse & Sadko that you can only hear in the ULTRA South Africa aftermovie. Check it out below!
The three-day expansion isn’t the only exciting change next year however, with the Cape Town leg of the festival moving to The River Club—a strikingly beautiful inner-city venue that will host some 20,000+ revelers come next February. ULTRA South Africa will be the first event of its kind to be hosted at newly renovated River Club and with its central location and jaw-dropping surrounding views, it’s guaranteed to be a sure-fire hit with Capetonians and international fans alike.

In an official statement made today, Ultra Music Festival organizers explained the change:

This decision has been made to reinforce and promote the safety of all Ultra Music Festival fans and to ensure the overall enjoyment of all future attendees. We are extremely grateful for all the support we have received from our younger fan base to date and we encourage them to attend the festival once they reach the appropriate age. Until then, our free YouTube stream ‘ULTRA LIVE’ is available worldwide for everyone, all ages to enjoy and to share in the Ultra experience.”
Newly hired Ultra Music Festival Security Director and former Miami Beach Police Chief Ray Martinez, further expressed his optimism towards the decision:
“The first step to having fun is feeling safe,” Martinez said, “We have chosen to adopt several new measures during next year’s festival to ensure our event is safe and secure. The first step to preserving the unique atmosphere that Ultra is famous for is to be proactive in attracting the right crowd.”

Russell Faibisch – Founder, Executive Producer and CEO of Ultra Music Festival and Ultra Worldwide shared his excitement by saying:
"South Africa & Japan are without a doubt two of the most burgeoning territories in the world when it comes to their ever-growing enthusiasm towards electronic music. Their demand for world-class electronic acts have become truly overwhelming of late, and the infrastructures in each place to put on an event like Ultra are healthier than they’ve ever been. These thriving scenes, coupled with the additional fact that these locations are some of the most beautiful I've ever come across, made the decision to expand into Africa and deeper into Asia an extremely exciting one to make."
Adam Russakoff – Executive Producer, Talent Booker and Director of Business Affairs for Ultra Music Festival and Ultra Worldwide went on to say:
"If there's one ethos that characterizes each and every one of our worldwide events, it's the unmatched experience that we offer our fans. This unique 'Ultra' experience is ultimately achieved by delivering the very best forward-thinking lineups alongside unbeatable production values, and I can absolutely guarantee that next year’s new editions will be no exception. The local promoters we've chosen to work with in each country both have an exceptional reputation for putting on the biggest and very best events in their markets, and our expansion into such booming territories is something I'm very much looking forward to."

Becoming the first electronic music festival in history to expand to two weekends, ULTRA 15 saw an unprecedented gathering of artists, which reportedly displayed the largest variety of electronic music that North America had ever seen. Featuring Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Trap, Electro, Techno, Deep House, Trance and more, Ultra Music Festival conquered practically every facet of EDM, providing a plethora of incredible musical experiences to satisfy virtually every taste and preference.
Ultra Music Festival 15 featured the largest and most technically advanced concert stage production and designs ever seen at an outdoor festival, as the latest in staging automation technology, video, set design, and creative LED video systems were combined to form a complete and awe-inspiring audiovisual experience. The massive Main Stage measured in at over 200 ft. wide and 100 ft. high, housing 1050 intelligent lights, 12,000 shots of pyrotechnics, the most dynamic lighting rig to be found at any stage found on earth, and 12 full-color, 32-watt lasers.

Attendees from more than 95 countries flocked to downtown Miami’s 32-acre Bayfront Park during Miami Music Week for the 2013 edition of Ultra Music Festival. Following on the heels of this landmark event, the 2014 festival is eagerly anticipated by fans worldwide.

This figure has now been officially declared by YouTube as the highest concurrent number of views for any US non-sponsored music stream!
