ULTRA Korea, the longest running ULTRA Worldwide event outside of Miami, has dropped a stunning 4K Aftermovie for its 2016 edition. With Early Bird tickets for this year’s event already sold out, Advance tickets are now on sale for the landmark sixth edition of ULTRA Korea, which will be returning on June 10 & 11, 2017, to the South Korean capital of Seoul.
Focusing on local talent, the Final Kid production tracks a group of young break-dancers and a long-boarder as they travel to the festival, accompanied by gliding shots that vividly capture the energy of the bustling and vibrant city that is Seoul. A graffiti artist is also seen preparing a piece of work, before the lens slowly turns to reveal she’s already at the Olympic Stadium – the home of ULTRA Korea 2016. The graffiti showcased in the film actually ended up becoming one of six live art activations that ran throughout the weekend, and the project, which was headed up by six different artists from around the globe, proved to be one of the highlights of the weekend.
Lauded by MTV Asia as the ‘go-to EDM Festival in Asia’ and rated as one of the seven best festivals in Asia by the South China Morning Post in 2016, over 150,000 people ended up attending the fifth edition of ULTRA Korea, making it the largest electronic music event in Korean history. Furthermore, over 730,000 people ended up tuning into the festival online via YouTube and V Live.
Advance tickets, now available at umfkorea.com, are priced at 165,000 KRW for Korean residents and 165 USD for those based overseas for the full two-day experience. With a Phase One lineup on the way soon, demand is expected to be at an all-time high for ULTRA Korea 2017. Fans are advised to act fast in order to avoid any disappointment.
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, BRASIL, 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 Amphitheatre in Miami in 2012 and was exhibited in over 500 theaters across the Unites States.
2016 saw 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® Rio de Janeiro on October 14-15, ULTRA Singapore™ having become a full scale two-day festival on September 10-11, RESISTANCE’s standalone South America Tour and ROAD TOULTRA®’s Hong Kong debut, the ULTRA brand has now united TWENTY COUNTRIES across FIVE CONTINENTS worldwide.
