Destination ULTRA – Croatia Music Week kicks off on July 14 with the official Opening Party at the Giraffe Palm Beach House in Split where, in July 2015, ULTRA Europe and techno label Cocoon teamed up to bring Sven Väth and a whole host of his label mates to jumpstart proceedings.

The experience will then move on to ULTRA Europe, the three-day festival at the Poljud Stadium, Split from July 15-17, where over 150,000 revelers are expected to witness electronic music’s most in-demand acts inside one of Croatia’s most majestic venues. Previous headline artists have included the likes of Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, Axwell^Ingrosso, Carl Cox, David Guetta, Hardwell, Knife Party, Martin Garrix, Tiësto and Zedd and with the announcement of The Chemical Brothers only last year, there are guaranteed to be a few more surprises in store for 2016. This year also saw the debut of the RESISITANCE concept at Ultra Europe, where the likes of Apollonia, Guy Gerber, Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, Nic Fanciulli, Sasha, Solomun and many more, offered festivalgoers an alternative on Arcadia Spectacular’s inimitable ‘Afterburner’ stage.

Following on from four mammoth days of partying in Split, and in exclusive partnership with Yacht Week, the Destination ULTRA – Croatia Music Week festivities move onto a one-off Yacht Regatta on July 18, which will see Zlatni Rat Beach on the Island of Brač host one of the most unique parties of the week.

July 19 will then take us to Hvar for the fourth edition of ULTRA Beach, which will welcome over 5,000 people to the Hotel Amfora Hvar Grand Beach Resort. Headliners in the past have included megastars such as Dillon Francis, Diplo, Fedde Le Grand and Oliver Heldens, and with all three previous editions selling out, ULTRA Beach is yet again expected to be one of the highlights of the week.

Finally, on July 20, Destination ULTRA – Croatia Music Week will close the curtain on what is set to be an incredible seven days of partying, with its RESISTANCE Closing Party on the island of Vis. Held inside an abandoned Fort from the early 19th century, ULTRA’s newest and most exciting concept, RESISTANCE, will return to conquer the fort once more.

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.
