The almost two week long extravaganza will kick off in the beautiful country of Peru. After making its official debut last year to over 18,000 attendees, this year’s event will take place on October 7 at the Explanada Costa Verde in Lima.

With Early Bird tickets selling out instantly upon release, Tier 1 tickets are now on sale for S/ 242 ($72 USD).
Moving the party down south, the next stop on this continental journey will be in Santiago, Chile on October 8. With views of the Andes as a backdrop, Ultranauts will be given a chance to catch the same amazing headliners and support that played in Lima the day prior including Atellagali and Rod Valdes as local talent, at the centrally located Movistar Arena, which will be decked out with the full RTU experience including top of the line stage, light and sound production. Tier 1 tickets for this highly anticipated event are already sold out, and Tier 2 tickets are currently priced at CLP 38,000 ($57 USD).
Bolivia will get their dose of ULTRA epicness on October 14, with a completely different lineup taking over the massive Estadio Ramon Tahuichi Aguilera in Santa Cruz. After being voted ‘Best Electronic Music Festival in Bolivia’ by thousands of fans in the RQP National Radio Awards, the Dutch sensation, Hardwell is set to headline this year’s edition complete with support from Dash Berlin. Chris Schweizer, Tom & Collins, The Zombie Kids, and local acts Andy Somoza, Hugo Maria, and Orlando will also perform as Road to ULTRA Bolivia is set to yet again become one of the largest electronic music events the country has ever seen. Tickets for the event are currently on sale and priced at Bs. 400 ($58 USD).
Last, but certainly not least, Road To ULTRA will be touching down in Paraguay on October 15. Headliners Above & Beyond, Krewella (Live), and DJ Snake are set to light Asunción ablaze, with JAUZ and Markus Schulz as support, and Agustin Gandino, Atellagali, M2M, and Thomas Young providing local flare. Early Bird tickets sold out almost immediately, and fans can now purchase Tier 1 tickets for Gs. 225,000 ($41 USD). Ultranauts will want to act quickly, as the final South American RTU event will undeniably be the best dance music event Paraguayans will see for the remainder of 2016.
Following this immense run of Road to ULTRA events, the South American tour concludes with the first ever Rio de Janeiro based edition of ULTRA Brasil taking place on October 14 & 15 at the stunning Quinta da Boa Vista Park.

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 eighteenth anniversary on March 18-20, 2016 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, returns to Bayfront Park for its nineteenth annual edition on March 24-26, 2017.
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 eighteen 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, BRAZIL, CHILE, CROATIA, IBIZA, JAPAN, KOREA, SOUTH AFRICA and of course MIAMI, as well as ROAD TO ULTRA® events in BOLIVIA, CHILE, COLOMBIA, 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 eighteen 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’ (bringing the festival online to over 20 million unique viewers globally) 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 will see 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 a brand new edition of ULTRA Brasil® confirmed to take place in Rio de Janeiro on October 14-15, 2016, ULTRA Singapore™ becoming a full scale two-day festival on September 10-11 and with ROAD TO ULTRA® entering Hong Kong later this year, the ULTRA brand has now united TWENTY COUNTRIES across FIVE CONTINENTS worldwide.
