Following a huge Phase One lineup announcement back in May, ULTRA Japan, the country’s largest ever electronic music festival, now reveals an even more impressive Phase Two roster brimming with A-list talent from across the dance music spectrum, as it prepares to host its third edition this September 17-19, 2016.

Adding to the list of already confirmed headliners (deadmau5, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Nero (Live), DJ Snake and Tiësto) are four more world-class acts, all of whom will be making their ULTRA Japan debuts. Techno kingpin and SCI+TEC label boss Dubfire will be leading the charge on the RESISTANCE Stage, while heavy-hitters Knife Party, Kygo and ZHU will entertain fans with their eclectic Main Stage performances at the Odaiba Ultra Park, Tokyo in just over a month’s time.

A further FIFTEEN acts have been added to the list of Phase Two Support, with Carnage, Fedde Le Grand, Galantis, Gryffin, Shogun, Thomas Jack and W&W joining Jauz and Marshmello on Main Stage duties, while Anna, Art Department, Matador, Nic Fanciulli, Nicole Moudaber, Reboot, Shaded (Live), Technasia and Yotto will be throwing it down on the RESISTANCE Stage.

If that weren’t enough, over forty more regional support acts have been confirmed, completing the ULTRA Japan Phase Two Lineup, which you can see in full here.

ULTRA Japan will mark the end of ULTRA Worldwide’s historic second run of shows in Asia this year. With ULTRA Korea and a SOLD OUT Road To ULTRA Thailand event having already taken place in June, part two will see the brand undertake a marathon six stops this September in Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Bali and the Philippines before finishing in Japan on September 19.

About ULTRA Worldwide™


The ULTRA brand in relation to live events was founded in 1997 in Miami by Executive Producer, President & CEO, Russell Faibisch, who began by producing electronic music events 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 eighteenth anniversary on March 18-20, 2016 by bringing over 165,000 music enthusiasts to the sold out waterfront event in the heart of the City of Miami. Ultra Music Festival®, recently voted the world’s #1 Festival by DJ Mag, returns to Bayfront Park for its nineteenth annual edition on March 24-26, 2017.

Choosing to follow a unique and creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused on its 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, but also the most international festival brand in the world. Event organizers continue to transport the unrivaled experience from the Miami flagship festival to an ever-growing number of destinations and Ultranauts all over the globe.

Over the past eighteen years, 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, JAPAN, KOREA, MACAU, PARAGUAY, PERU, THE PHILIPPINES, PUERTO RICO, SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND and the USA. Each new global edition has been founded on the same successful recipe that has been perfected over eighteen years in Miami, combining the most diverse electronic talent with the most technologically advanced, large-scale festival productions in the world.

The ULTRA brands have pioneered the live stream experience with ‘ULTRA LIVE’ (bringing the festival online to over 20 million unique viewers globally) and the audio broadcasting platform ‘UMF RADIO’ (syndicated to FM Radio in over 62 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 was premiered on the red carpet at the Klipsch Amphitheater in Miami in 2012 and was exhibited in over 500 theaters across the Unites States.

2016 will see the ULTRA and ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ brands continue to push the boundaries even further, 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 a brand new edition of ULTRA Brasil® confirmed to take place in Rio de Janeiro on October 14-15, 2016, ULTRA Singapore™ becoming a full scale two-day festival on September 10-11 and with ROAD TO ULTRA® entering Hong Kong later this year, the ULTRA brand has now united TWENTY COUNTRIES across FIVE CONTINENTS worldwide.
