Ultra worldwide has continued it's domination of the electronic dance music community in 2017. The brand expanded globally almost a decade ago when it first started to host destination festivals similar to it's Miami flagship event. These festivals slowly found their way to 6 continents and over a dozen countries.
2017 Was A Year Of Expansion
While Ultra held several full scale festivals around the world it also introduced it's “Road To Ultra” series which holds smaller scale events at destinations which were not yet able to host a full scale event. Ultra Music Festival has become synonymous with dance music and for good reason. Check out the full statistics below to see just how large of a foot print Ultra is making around the world.
