ULTRA Brasil – October 14 & 15, 2016
After announcing expansion plans into Brasil earlier in the year, The World’s Most International Festival Brand, ULTRA Worldwide, has officially confirmed its final plans for their 2016 South America Tour.
With plans already well underway for the first edition of ULTRA Brasil in Rio de Janeiro (October 14 & 15), this year’s colossal takeover will now see ULTRA light up an additional FOUR countries across the continent from October 7-15, 2016.
No stranger to the region, Road To ULTRA will be returning to Lima (Peru), Asunción (Paraguay), Santa Cruz (Bolivia), and Santiago (Chile) for another round of spectacular shows, before the historic finale in “Cidade Maravilhosa”—Rio.
The first Road to ULTRA event will be held in Peru on October 7, where mile-long queues and over 20,000 diehard fans hit the beaches of Lima less than one year ago. RTU Peru 2016 will bring an unmatched fervor to the capital, igniting the dance-crazed country with next level stage production and top-notch talent.

RTU Chile is the next stop on the tour, relocating from the 2014 RTU location of Ritoque to the Ciudad de Santiago. Powered by the same innovative team that produces the World’s No. 1 Dance Music Festival, ULTRA Miami, the thriving metropolis of Santiago will be shaken to its very core, no doubt leaving Chilean Ultranauts yearning for more.

In 2015, Bolivian national radio station RQP hosted a competition to crown the country’s best electronic music festival. Naturally, the public voted RTU Bolivia as the nation’s favorite! As a result, RTU Bolivia will be returning in 2016, arriving in Santa Cruz on October 14 to entertain upwards of over 10,000 fans.
Last but by no means least, RTU Paraguay will touch down in the bustling capital city of Asunción for the final stop of the Road To ULTRA outing, on October 15. Situated in the heart of Asunción, just off the Paraguay River, this return edition promises the out-of-this-world stage design, state of the art pyrotechnics, and the first class lineup that characterizes every ULTRA event across the globe.
In a historic moment for ULTRA Worldwide, the South American tour concludes with the first ever Rio de Janeiro based edition of ULTRA Brasil taking place on October 14 & 15.

About ULTRA WORLDWIDE™
ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ is the global edition of the World’s Premier Electronic Music event, ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL.
The ULTRA brand was founded in 1997 by Executive Producer, President & CEO Russell Faibisch, and began producing electronic music events in South Florida, 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 from 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 returns to Bayfront Park for its nineteenth annual edition, 24-26 March 2017.
Choosing to follow a unique, creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused around a 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, they are now the most international of any festival brand in the world by far. The event organizers continue to transport the unrivalled experience from the Miami flagship festival to an ever-growing number of destinations and fans all over the globe.
Over the past eighteen years, literally 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, MACAU, PARAGUAY, PERU, THE PHILIPPINES, PUERTO RICO, SEOUL, SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND, TOKYO and the USA. Each and every new global edition is 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.
In addition, the ULTRA brands pioneered the live stream experience, ‘ULTRA LIVE’ (whereby the festival is brought online to over 20 million unique viewers globally) and the audio broadcasting platform ‘UMF RADIO’ (syndicated to FM Radio in over 77 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 premiered at the Ultra Music Festival, Miami 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 14-15 October 2016, ULTRA Singapore becoming a full scale two-day festival on 9-10 September and with ROAD TO ULTRA® entering Hong Kong later this year, the ULTRA brand has now united TWENTY COUNTRIES across FIVE CONTINENTS worldwide.
