You can’t say you’ve partied hard until you’ve been to an ULTRA Music Festival (UMF). Started in 1999, UMF has since grown to become an electronic dance music (EDM) behemoth, pushing the envelope with unparalleled production and stellar DJ-spinning credentials (think Tiesto, David Guetta and Martin Garrix). The Miami-born independent music fest has the widest reach in the world, spanning 19 countries – parties don’t get any bigger than this.
The rave wave hit the shores of Singapore in 2015, when the folks behind UMF decided to suss out just how hot EDM was on this island. A single-stage indoor mini-event, ‘Road to ULTRA Singapore’, was thus born. And the ravers didn’t disappoint – ‘Road to ULTRA Singapore’ burnt out of its 11,000 tickets just 21 minutes into early bird sales, instantly paving the road for Singapore to go full-scale ULTRA.
Any heavier, they’ll break the stage. Boasting electronica’s biggest names like Skrillex, Alesso, Nicky Romero, Kygo, Afrojack, deadmau5, Nero and Far East Movement, the outdoor, two-day, three-stage event does not go gentle on introducing novice ears to EDM – get ready to be reeled in, lifted high and plunged low into the best of thumping beats and pulsing synths. Here’s the lowdown on the stages:
Snag your tickets and pit your stamina against EDM’s reigning DJ legends.
