After its inaugural event last year, Ultra Music is expanding its presence in Singapore in September to a two-day festival experience. The upgraded event includes Phase One headliners Afrojack, Axwell^Ingrosso, deadmau5, Kygo, DJ Snake and Nero Live, and will form the third major ULTRA festival in Asia alongside ULTRA Korea, which wrapped its fifth year this month, and the upcoming third edition of ULTRA Japan, also in September.
Canadian deadmau5, who is currently mid way through his ULTRA Worldwide 2016 global tour, will have completed five ULTRA dates this year after his appearance in Singapore - he performed three sets at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Kygo will make his debut on his very own birthday weekend, bringing his style to the main stage. Scandinavians Axwell^Ingrosso will fly the flag for Sweden, British three-piece live electronic band NERO will rep the UK, while DJ Snake does the same for France. Completing the Phase One lineup is DJ Marshmello and JAUZ.
These acts will be performing at the new ULTRA Park venue across the weekend, set on Singapore’s very own ‘Bayfront Avenue’. A spitting image of Miami’s Bayfront Park location, and situated right across the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, ULTRA Singapore will be the first event of its kind held at this outdoor venue. The new space will provide views of the downtown skyline and vistas of the Marina Bay.
Drawing further parallels to Miami, the event will receive the full treatment, bringing festival-goers the MAIN STAGE, ULTRA’s Live Stage, and the RESISTANCE stage - a concept featuring techno, deep house and the darker side of dance music.
ULTRA Singapore marks the start of ULTRA Worldwide’s second Asia run this year, with the ULTRA Korea festival and the Road To Ultra Thailand event having already taken place this month.
Part two will see the brand undertake six stops including Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, Bali and the Philippines all within a two-week span.
