main-textGlobe conquering electronic music festival Ultra is setting its sights on Asia and has announced it’s bringing the noise for Ultra Singapore in 2015

 

Known for their elaborate stage setups and literal who’s-who lineups of the EDM world, Ultra Music Festival has been held since 1999 and draws around 100,000 revelers per day across the 3 day festival. Initially run out of Miami, the festival has since been hosted in Las Vegas, Croatia, South Africa and Japan in recent years and now have their eyes firmly fixed on South East Asia.

 

The announcement that Ultra is looking to head to Singapore in 2015 was made at Ultra Music Festival’s spiritual homeland of Miami with the main stage MC telling the masses:

 

“Right now, the announcement you’ve been waiting for. We’re talking Ultra to Singapore, Asia! Singapore is our next stop. Thank you so much… We’ll see you in Singapore. Don’t forget this is the most important part of the night.”

 

The announcement was greeted with cheers and applause from the audience minutes before EDM heavyweight Skrillex took to the decks to perform in front of the audience of thousands.

Fans greeted the announcement with mixed reactions across social media channels when their pages went live across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Many were excited about the prospect but others maintained a degree of skepticism with wounds still fresh  after plans to host Future Music Festival Asia were derailed earlier this year.

Just days before the event, Future Music Festival was cancelled, when it was revealed that organizers had failed to secure the appropriate permits to host the concert. Police cited concerns about drugs as a factor in their refusal after a number of festival goers in Kuala Lumpur died of an overdose in 2014.
