Ultra Music Festival, Singapore
June 15, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 16, 2018 @ 5:00 pm UTC+7
Light up your glow sticks and trip the light fantastic at Singapore’s Ultra Music Festival on 15 and 16 June. Electronic Dance Music (EDM) lovers from all over the world will visit Singapore to hear top talent churn out their heart-racing beats on three outdoor stages.
The ULTRA Main Stage is where the main action is. Live Stage is where live performances take place with drums, guitars, live synths, vocals etc. including pop and rock acts and electro-pop artists. RESISTANCE is often described as the diehard stage where techno and house artists bring the house down.
Over 47,000 visitors from 60 countries visited last year’s edition. The line-up for this year’s third edition still needs to be announced but past headliners included Hardwell, Tiësto, Kygo, Afrojack, DJ Snake and Steve Aoki.

When you think of Singapore, electronic dance music is unlikely to spring to mind first. Ultra Singapore is part of the wider Ultra Music Festival (UMF) that was born in Miami in 1999, grew into an independent electronic dance music behemoth and has now spread to twenty countries. When the UMF organisers in 2015 tried to find out how popular electronic music was on the nation-island, their single-stage mini event called “Road to ULTRA Singapore” sold out its 11,000 tickets in 21 minutes. The decision was made quickly to return the following year as a fully-fledged two-day festival. With that first edition in 2016, Singapore became the third country that hosted an Ultra Live stage, after Miami – where UMF’s main event takes place – and Ultra Korea.
While Singapore is certainly worth a trip for its own sake, if you’re an electronic music lover then their Ultra festival is a must-visit.
The event will take place at Ultra Park, Bayfront Avenue and there are four ticket options, including one-day and two-day passes, starting from $155. For more details visit the official website https://ultrasingapore.com/
