It’s still unbelievable that Ultra has set up camp right here in Singapore. The huge brand, which was founded in 1997, has been a mainstay on the Miami music festival circuit for a long time now, so it’s actually really a big deal that they’re slowly (and finally) entering the Asian market. They’ve just released the last phase of the lineup, which already sees EDM stalwarts like deadmau5, Axwell and Ingrosso, Above & Beyond and Kygo.
Joining the stellar lineup is homegrown DJ Myrne, who was recently signed to Diplo’s Mad Decent label, Lion City kia Shigga Shay, and Rave Republic, the DJ-duo who will be making waves on the main stage. Also making an appearance is our very own Maurice Simon.
It’s technically Singapore’s first full-fledged edition of the festival (and Singapore is currently the only country in the Southeast Asian region to host it); last year’s Road To Ultra—a downsized, one-day event—saw biggies like Skrillex, Alesso and Nicky Romero entertain about 11,000 people at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
Taking the party outdoors in Ultra Park at Bayfront Avenue this year, and upping it with three stages instead of one, UItra Singapore is going to be a full weekend of sick beats, blinding strobe lights and a throng of hardcore revellers.
