The Ultra Music Festival franchise is now just one step closer to world domination. For the latest addition to their “Ultra Worldwide” takeover, Ultra Music Festival has expanded its festival path to the Indonesian island of Bali.
Recently, viagogo announced a partnership with Ultra Beach Bali, a franchise of Ultra Worldwide, and will be the go-to official ticket destination when it comes to snagging tickets for the event. Tickets for Ultra Bali are now on sale, and pre-sale tickets have already sold out due to incredibly high demand. Although the regular two-day ticket passes are available for purchase, they are expected to sell out quickly.
The Ultra Bali Beach festival will be held at the Potato Head Beach Club in Seminyak on September 24 and 25, and Ultra is anticipating a crowd of over 10,000 “Ultranauts” for the experience. The artist roster has yet to be announced, although Ultra’s history of enlisting the top DJs at nearly every festival event should be a consistent variable when it comes to anticipating the two-day lineup in Bali.
According to a viagogo spokesperson, “Bali has always been a dream destination for travelers around the world and now, with Ultra Beach Bali, it’s building a reputation for great live music too. It’s our mission to broaden access to the best events in the world and we’re delighted to provide our world class international ticketing services for this fantastic event.”
The festival, which was founded in 1999 by Russell Faibisch and Alex Omes, got its name from the 1997 Depeche Mode album, Ultra, and expanded rapidly from its original one-day Miami event in 1999. Top DJs like Armin van Buuren, Afrojack, Carl Cox, David Guetta, Hardwell, and Martin Garrix have held headlines slots in prior festivals and this year at Ultra Miami, the lineup became one of its biggest yet, as it featured headlining sets from Tiësto, Skrillex, Hardwell and Armin van Buuren.
Ultra Worldwide has already made stops in South Africa, Buenos Aires, Miami, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, and Croatia. In addition to Bali, the festival will be making first-time-ever stops in Macau, Peru, Bolivia, and Singapore later in the year.
