Ultra Worldwide have announced plans to bring their world renown electronic festival to Europe for the first time ever. Starting next summer, Ultra Music Festival will touch down in Croatia from July 12-14th, where it will remain for the next five years.
The festival will take place specifically at Split’s Poljud Stadium for the first two days, before moving over to the Hotel Amfora Grand Beach Resort on the island of Hvar for the final day. (It’s just a ferry ride away, apparently.) Ultra Worldwide already anticipates 60,000 attendees and plans to stream the three days through UMF TV and UMF Radio.
Electronic music is one of the most popular and fastest growing genres in the world, and the Ultra Music Festival has been recognized as one of the leading festivals of that genre,” Russell Faibisch, the Founder, Executive Producer and CEO of Ultra Music Festival and Ultra Worldwide writes. “Taking into consideration the highly developed music scene in Croatia and the excellent reputation of Split and Hvar as top tourist destinations, the decision to bring Ultra Music Festival and the incredible experience it has to offer to Croatia in the form of Ultra Europe was an easy one to make. We strongly believe that electronic music fans are acutely aware of what Ultra Music Festival represents and will come in great numbers to share this amazing experience in both Split and Hvar this July.
Early bird tickets for the first two days, priced at £40, go on sale December 5th exclusively at Ultra Europe.com. Phase One of the lineup will be announced on December 12th at 12:00 p.m. local time. Catch a teaser below.
