The highlight of South Africa’s dance music calendar, ULTRA SOUTH AFRICA has come and gone, leaving Ultranauts reeling with what was by far the biggest and most mind-blowing ULTRA the country has ever seen.
Ultra South Africa has just smashed all previous attendance records and reminded the local market how phenomenal this global music brand truly is! 50, 000 excited electronic music lovers streamed through the gates at the Ostrich Ranch, and Nasrec over the weekend, making Ultra South Africa 2019 the biggest Ultra South Africa the country has seen!
On Friday 1st March Capetonians were blown away by the magnitude of the event (back at the Ostrich Ranch and in its natural, festival-style habitat), the level of production, the sound, the diversity of the acts, and the sheer energy of the event and the beauty of the Ultra Angels – both local and from overseas. From the proudly local sounds of artists from Dean FUEL, to No Method, to Shimza and Black Coffee on RESISTANCE, to the insane energy of Infected Mushroom, Vini Vici and Martin Garrix, to the impact of the Chainsmokers LIVE set, Capetonians were blown away!
Joburg was next up on Saturday 2nd March and the new layout and overall event production smashed all expectations. Each stage there upped its game from previous years and crowds were treated to performances and production the likes of which had never been experienced before. The Samsung Galaxy stage was packed from start to finish, the new Until Until stage didn’t quieten for a minute, and RESISTANCE had a spell on its audience all day and night, with Black Coffee’s set a standout for all that witnessed it.
All attendees of both shows were kept safe all night with not one incident reported, making Ultra South Africa 2019 a massive entertainment highlight on SA’s music calendar.
Ultra SA 2019 was presented by Samsung and 5FM and sponsored by: Budwesier and Red Bull.
