ULTRA Korea returned for its seventh edition and ran over three consecutive days June 8, 9 and 10. A record 120,000 attendees from over 60 countries danced their hearts out at the Olympic Park in Seoul to the sounds of headliners  Above & Beyond,  Axwell /\ Ingrosso,  The Chainsmokers,  David Guetta,  Galantis,  Ice Cube,  Modestep (Live),  Nicky Romero,  RL Grime,  Steve Angello,  ZEDD,  ZHU (Live) and many more. The RESISTANCE floor also commandeered a full crowd all weekend long, delivering mind-blowing performances by techno titans  Nicole Moudaber, Popof and  Carl Craig who closed out each night of the festival respectively, supported by many other sensational house and techno acts over the weekend.

Simultaneously, on June 9,   Road To Ultra Hong Kong landed at the  AsiaWorld-Expo with thousands of fans in attendance.  Axwell /\ Ingrosso,  David Guetta and  Galantis headlined proceedings for the third annual edition, providing the soundtrack to a blockbuster event, bolstered by characteristic ULTRA world-class stage production and lighting.

On the following weekend of June 15 and 16,  ULTRA Singapore saw more than 40,000 people descend on Ultra Park, with the debut of the Worldwide stage proving a huge success. This was the first time in history that the iconic Worldwide stage has been brought to a festival outside of the flagship Ultra Music Festival in Miami.  Illenium and RL Grime closed out the packed stage each night in style, with an eclectic range of artists, both local and international, delivering electrifying sets over the course of the weekend.  RESISTANCE once again played a larger role than ever at the festival, with debut performances from headliner, Loco Dice and support from  Nastia,  Oxia and  Popof topping the stage billing with stunning performances throughout.
