ULTRA has certainly come a long way since its inception in 1999. These facts about ULTRA will certainly make your jaw drop.

The juggernaut event-production company, ULTRA, hosted 45 events that more than 1,000,000 people attended. To put that in perspective, that’s more than the combined population of Greenland, Iceland, Brunei, and Guam!

With its first  Australian event scheduled in Melbourne next year,  Antarctica is the only continent on the planet without an ULTRA-event. However, a certain well-informed penguin in Antarctica told us that ULTRA plans to host an event there by 2020.

With millions of fans across the world, not everyone has the privilege of attending an ULTRA event. However, many choose to experience ULTRA’s events vicariously through ULTRA’s livestream. The numbers were off the charts, with a staggering 125,000,000 views. Additionally, UMF Radio, broadcasted in over 62 countries, boasts a dedicated listenership of 32,693,400 estimated weekly listeners.

ULTRA produced a brand new 8-week RESISTANCE Residency to showcase some of the finest underground dance music talent at the world’s largest nightclub -Privilege Ibiza. The lineup included the likes of Dubfire, Sasha & John Digweed, and Carlo Lio.

For the 2nd year in a row, ULTRA’s flagship event, Ultra Music Festival, was awarded  #1 Festival In the World by DJ Mag. UMF is all set to make its return to Miami for its landmark twentieth anniversary in March next year.
