ULTRA South Africa Adds Fedde Le Grand, W&W and Claptone to Final Lineup! | Limited 1-day tickets now on sale

With just over six weeks until ULTRA South Africa™ lands in Johannesburg and Cape Town for its landmark third annual edition, festival organizers now reveal three surprise international superstars set to perform across the four-day, two city event this February.

First up to join the diverse list of DJs already confirmed, is none other than Dutch superstar and Ultra Worldwide favorite Fedde Le Grand. Known the world over for his trademark energetic Main Stage performances, Fedde will be showcasing his unique interpretation of electro house across both cities next month. Next up, fellow countrymen and DJ duo, W&W will also be making the trip to Cape Town and Johannesburg, as they prepare to make their ULTRA South Africa™ return and entertain the crowds with some high-octane trance wizardry. Last but by no means least is the masked man of mystery behind some of the biggest deep house tunes of 2015, including ‘No Eyes’ and his remixes of Gregory Porter’s ‘Liquid Spirit’ and Disclosure’s ‘Omen’ – Claptone.

These megastars will be joining some of the biggest hitters in the world of dance music, including already confirmed headliners Tiësto (who has just been confirmed to play an extended 2-hour set at both events), Skrillex, Zedd and Afrojack, as well as support acts such as Dash Berlin, Robin Schulz, Galantis, Carnage, Seth Troxler, The Martinez Brothers, Mr. Carmack and a large selection of the finest homegrown talent South Africa has to offer. 

In addition, and for those Ultranauts who may be unable to make it to both days of either show, ULTRA South Africa™ today introduces special LIMITED 1-Day tickets for both Cape Town and Johannesburg shows, in addition to the standard 2-Day weekend tickets already on offer. 1-Day GA, VIP and VVIP (JHB only) are now on sale here [link] starting at just R690.

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 seventeenth anniversary from March 27-29, 2015 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 eighteenth annual edition, 18-20 March 2016.

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 seventeen 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 seventeen 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 42 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.

In 2015, the ULTRA and ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ brands have continued to push the boundaries, 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 its recent festival editions breaking records in JAPAN (September 2015), SOUTH AFRICA (February 2015), KOREA (June 2015), CROATIA  (July 2015) and BALI (September 2015), and with the addition of the many new ROAD TO ULTRA® events all over the world, the ULTRA brand has now united NINETEEN COUNTRIES across FIVE CONTINENTS worldwide.
