Ultra Brasil 2016

After making its debut in 2016, Ultra Music Festival is returning to Brazil with an expanded edition of the music fest. 

This year, the three-day event will take place Oct. 12-14 at the Samb√≥dromo -- becoming the only edition in South America as a three-day affair.

With the expansion of the music fest, Ultra Brazil will add Ultra Village and an Ultra Boulevard to the site with new activations, food stalls, bars and shops. The three custom-built stages will also "receive extra-special upgrades to both design and production," according to a statement.

With more than 60,000 attendees, headliners for the inaugural edition included Above & Beyond, Carl Cox, DJ Snake, Hardwell and Martin Garrix. Ticket registration for Ultra Brazil 2017 is now open.

Lineup to be announced in the upcoming months.
