In addition to hosting the festival’s mysterious final closing act on Sunday, Ultra’s main stage will also welcome stadium-smashing end-of-night performances from superstars Kygo and Illenium. The Main Stage will additionally feature high-octane heavy-hitters including David Guetta, Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Alesso, Oliver Heldens, Afrojack, and Vini Vici, as well as the worldwide debut of Vintage Culture b2b Claptone, and humping beats from heralded selectors like FISHER, Tchami, and ACRAZE.
The Live Stage will host a plethora of dynamic performances, with Friday’s roster including Pendulum’s genre-crossing set, Alison Wonderland’s spellbinding magic, SVDDEN DEATH Presents VOYD’s audio-visual experience, Sullivan King’s rock-fueled, guitar-centric live set, and Ookay’s multi-faceted show featuring dancers, inflatables, live instrumentation, and choreography. Saturday will close with KSHMR’s special rendition of The Live Experience, preceded by Madeon’s mesmerizing live performance, SOFI TUKKER’s inclusive, feel-good dance party, and Gareth Emery’s exclusive global debut of his Analog album and live show. Sunday will commence with SLANDER’s first-ever live Ultra performance alongside their pop singer-songwriter collaborator Dylan Matthew, which will follow debut festival sets from creative polymath Oliver Tree and singer-songwriter-producer Elohim.
The Worldwide Stage will kick off on Friday with Armin van Buuren’s world-famous A State of Trance hosting its 10th Ultra Music Festival takeover featuring two special performances from the ASOT founder: he and Reinier Zonneveld will play their first ever b2b set off the back of their new single “Dance Again,” followed by an unforgettable closing set from Armin himself. Additionally, trance lovers can catch Friday performances from industry trendsetters like Vini Vici, Gareth Emery, Andrew Rayel, Aly & Fila, Sander van Doorn, and Avira.
