83 MILLION ULTRA WORLDWIDE LIVESTREAMS: Since co-founding ULTRA Worldwide in 1999, Faibisch -- and since 2005, his partner Russakoff -- have grown it into one of the world’s largest music festival brands. They say they have sold over 1 million tickets in 27 countries in 2018 and generated over 83 million livestream views of their events. The company rang in its 20th birthday last March with a monumental bash for its flagship Ultra Music Festival at Miami’s Bayfront Park. The sold-out three-day spin, anchored by a surprise Swedish House Mafia reunion, drew 165,000 attendees and featured surprise appearances by Halsey, Desiigner and Will Smith.
