The inaugural edition of Ultra Japan sold out more than eight weeks in advance and became the country’s largest ever electronic music gathering
Two weeks ago, Japan became the fourth Asian nation to witness the magic of Ultra, and it set some really high standards in terms of organisation and production.
More than 42,000 people gathered at Tokyo’s Odaiba Ultra Park to witness some of the best in electronic music. Over one million watched live on Ultra’s official YouTube channel UMF TV, as the Land of the Rising Sun welcomed an eye-watering selection of the world’s best DJs, including Afrojack, Alesso, Axwell Ingrosso, Fedde Le Grand, Hardwell, Kaskade, Martin Garrix, Steve Angello and W&W. Highlights were also shown on Japanese national television station, FUJI TV.
Headliners Axwell Ingrosso were in sheer awe of the energy that radiated through Tokyo and also claimed that it was one of the best gigs they’ve ever performed at.
Ultra continues to shatter records everywhere they set foot, and their Midas touch surely warrants their title of being the world’s prime independent festival brand. Their most recent stint was held at Chile this past week..
