With less than 20 days to go until the over the top madness of ULTRA South Africa returns to our sunny shores, organisers have released the full and final lineup including all artist and stage information for all of the very excited Ultranauts heading to the shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg!
Tier 1 tickets have also sold out so tickets have moved over to Tier 2; this phase is limited so don’t wait to purchase yours if you haven’t yet! Trust us, with all of these new additions you do not want to miss out on ULTRA SA 2017.
New additions to Cape Town and Johannesburg for the 2017 shows are…
The biggest and most exciting news here is of course the move to the Cape Town Stadium as venue! Not only is it central and easily accessible, but is also arguably one of Cape Town’s most iconic spaces and is a fitting home to a festival the stature of ULTRA SA.
The stadium aside, ULTRA SA 2017 is also introducing a new stage to Cape Town in the form of the Bridges For Music (BFM) Stage. BFM, the international non-profit charity organisation that gives previously disadvantaged children the opportunity to earn a better life through music, has curated a local lineup featuring kids from SA townships who will be given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to express themselves and show their skill on an ULTRA Stage, to an audience that will be blown away by the raw talent on display.
The Cape Town Resistance Stage will bring a solid mix of Cape Town’s hottest house and techno DJs including Strange Loving who are currently charting globally on Beatport and locally all over our radios. Also legendary names such as Nic Fancuilli, Dean FUEL, Ivan Turanjanin, Crazy White Boy and more.
The only issue that Ultranauts in Cape Town may face on the day is how to be at all 3 stages at one time so as not to miss out on any of the goodness!
The Main Stage that will be dominated on the night by our huge headliners, plus the Resistance Stage including Nic Fancuilli, Black Coffee, Tomorrows Will, Household Funk, Ryan Murgatroyd and more.
In addition Samsung Galaxy Experience, as proud presenting sponsor, has gone one step further and put together the incredible Samsung Galaxy Experience Stage featuring South Africa’s best DJs and live acts including Euphonik, Timo ODV, Kyle Cassim and more! Not content with bringing Jhb such a rocking stage, they have also teamed up with 94.7FM to unearth new DJ talent by running the Block Party campaign where DJs can submit their mixes to the station to stand a chance to be the opening set on the Samsung Galaxy Experience Stage at ULTRA Johannesburg!
The final (for now!) gamechanger for 2017 is the introduction of a cool new twist on Hip Hop/ Trap with the Until Until Stage, curated by Jhb’s freshest promoters of the same name. Showing their freshest take on cutting edge urban culture, and in doing so sparking the interest of ULTRA SA organisers, Until Until will bring the coolest urban talent to their stage and add a whole new flavour to ULTRA SA.

About ULTRA Worldwide™
ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ IS THE GLOBAL EDITION OF THE WORLD’S PREMIER ELECTRONIC MUSIC EVENT, ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL®.
The ULTRA brand in relation to live events was founded in 1997 in Miami by Executive Producer, President & CEO, Russell Faibisch, who began by producing electronic music events 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 on 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®, recently voted the world’s #1 Festival by DJ Mag, returns to Bayfront Park for its nineteenth annual edition on March 24-26, 2017.
Choosing to follow a unique and creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused on its 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, but also the most international festival brand in the world. Event organizers continue to transport the unrivaled experience from the Miami flagship festival to an ever-growing number of destinations and Ultranauts all over the globe.
Over the past eighteen years, 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, BRASIL, CHILE, CROATIA, IBIZA, JAPAN, KOREA, SOUTH AFRICA and of course MIAMI, as well as ROAD TO ULTRA® events in BOLIVIA, CHILE, COLOMBIA, JAPAN, KOREA, MACAU, PARAGUAY, PERU, THE PHILIPPINES, PUERTO RICO, SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND and the USA. Each new global edition has been 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.
The ULTRA brands have pioneered the live stream experience with ‘ULTRA LIVE’ (bringing the festival online to over 20 million unique viewers globally) and the audio broadcasting platform ‘UMF RADIO’ (syndicated to FM Radio in over 62 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 was premiered on the red carpet at the Klipsch Amphitheater in Miami in 2012 and was exhibited in over 500 theaters across the Unites States.
2016 has seen 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 the SOLD-OUT edition of ULTRA Brasil® Rio de Janeiro on October 14-15, ULTRA Singapore™ having become a full scale two-day festival on September 10-11, RESISTANCE’s standalone South America Tour and ROAD TO ULTRA®’s Hong Kong debut, the ULTRA brand has now united TWENTY COUNTRIES across FIVE CONTINENTS worldwide. In 2016 alone ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ produced TWENTY-SIX events spanning SEVENTEEN countries and FIVE continents.
