ULTRA SINGAPORE REVEALS BREATHTAKING OUTDOOR ‘ULTRA PARK’ LOCATION
ULTRA JAPAN ANNOUNCES PHASE ONE LINEUP
DEADMAU5 TO PERFORM AT BOTH EDITIONS ON ULTRA WORLDWIDE TOUR
Having announced plans to upgrade to a full-scale, two-day festival earlier in the year, ULTRA Singapore now pulls back the curtain on two of the biggest surprises in store for its inaugural edition, taking place on September 10 & 11, 2016.
It can be now be revealed that ULTRA Singapore will be moving to an exclusive and brand new outdoor venue, situated right in the heart of The Lion City. Positioned across from the Marina Bay Sands (where the one-day Road To ULTRA Singapore event was held in 2015) at 1 Bayfront Avenue, ULTRA Singapore will be the first music event of its kind to ever take place at this stunning location. ULTRA Singapore will transform the field into a festival site of unparalleled production.
In another first for the country, organizers have also secured the rights to rename the waterfront venue ‘ULTRA Park’ throughout the duration of the event, which will run from 12.00pm to 10.30pm across both days.
None other than deadmau5 has been confirmed as the first name to play ULTRA Singapore, as he prepares to take part in a one-of-a-kind ULTRA Worldwide tour that will see the Canadian play at ULTRA events in Singapore, Korea, Croatia, Taiwan and Japan across remainder of the year.

The similarities between ULTRA Singapore and its Miami counterpart don’t stop at their unique downtown Bayfront locations either. In addition, this year will see ULTRA Singapore host three of the brand’s most beloved stages, in the form of the MAIN, LIVE and RESISTANCE™ Stages. In fact, Singapore will become only the third country to host an ULTRA Live Stage, following the pioneering footsteps of the flagship event in Miami and most recently, ULTRA Korea.
Advance Tier 1 tickets priced at $160 USD are now on sale. Premium General Admission tickets, giving attendees access to dedicated entry lanes, restrooms and more, are also available priced at $185 USD. Both tiers of Early Bird tickets sold out almost instantly upon going on sale and with a full Phase One Lineup on its way soon, fans will have to move fast in order to secure their place at the debut edition of ULTRA Singapore.

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.
