How damn epic is the start of the movie?

Yes it's true ULTRA South Africa was a smash, A hugely successful, record-breaking second edition held in February 2015, probably dominated everyone's mind before and after. So I am not surprised that ULTRA South Africa officially returns in 2016, as it announces plans to expand the festival into a full three-day affair!

Having smashed its own record for being the largest electronic music festival in African history this year, and with an increase of 20% in attendance recorded from 2014, it can now be revealed that ULTRA South Africa, due to popular demand, will run for TWO consecutive days at Johannesburg’s Expo Centre, Nasrec on Friday, February 26 and Saturday, February 27, before returning to Cape Town on Sunday, February 28, for a finale to remember.

Have a look at the 2015 aftermovie. Directed, produced and shot in 4K by Final Kid mastermind Charly Friedrichs, the aftermovie showcases the magnificent sights of South Africa alongside the fist-pumping sounds of the world’s biggest DJs, simply breathtaking.


Kicking off with Martin Garrix reminiscing about his very first main stage festival performance at ULTRA South Africa itself back in 2014, the aftermovie follows the Dutch luminary a year on from his landmark moment, combining it with some of the incredible footage that was shot at Ostrich Farm, Cape Town and The Expo Centre, Nasrec, Johannesburg over the two mesmerizing days earlier this year. To celebrate the release, Garrix himself also decided to premiere two exclusive ID tracks from his upcoming catalogue that you could only hear in the ULTRA South Africa aftermovie.

So are we ready for 2016?... Sh!t YES!!!
