With Ultra Brazil and Resistance Buenos Aires finishing earlier this month, the Ultra Worldwide 2017 World Tour has officially come to a close.
This year, Ultra hosted 45 events in 20 countries across five continents and for the second year in a row, over 1 million people attended Ultra events worldwide. Streaming numbers were bigger than ever before, with over 125 million combined live-stream and artist video-on-demand stream views across the year.
Asia is of course a huge part of this all, with a 25 percent of the events happening on the continent. In 2017 alone, Ultra produced new full-scale festivals in China, and new Road to Ultra events in Mumbai and New Delhi.
Prior to the flagship festival’s celebration in March 2018, Ultra will make its return to Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa in February along with a fresh Road to Ultra event in Melbourne, Australia, adding a record-breaking sixth continent to Ultra’s international itinerary.
