We just talked about the Singapore Symphony Orchestra here, but as we said, there are a ton of different music events in the city, practically every night. So why not jump to something completely different this time and talk about Ultra Singapore!
Ultra Singapore is something fairly new for Singapore – it is an outdoor electronic music festival that was first performed in 2015 as a part of the worldwide Ultra Music Festival.
The Festival itself was first started in 1999 in Miami and ever since then has consistently been setting the bar in the Electronic Dance Music genre (EDM).
In 2015 the Ultra Singapore saw world-famous musicians such as Alesso, Skrillex and Nicky Romero, and in 2016 Kygo, the Far East Movement, Nero, DJ Snake, Marshmello, Jauz, and deadmau5 performed across three different festival stages!
Both previous years the festival took place in September, but in 2017 it will be held on June 10th and 11th. The Live Headliners this year will be KSHMR, Pendulum and Tchami, and they will be supported by a ton of amazing DJ headliners, including Dash Berlin, Don Diablo, Dubfire, Hardwell, Martin Solveig, Nic Fanciulli, Nicki Romero, Showtek, Steve Angelo, Steve Aoki, Tiësto, and many, many others!
The festival will take place in three separate stages – the Ultra Mainstage, the Live Stage, and the Resistance.

As a part of the worldwide Ultra Music Festival, Ultra Singapore is something that no electronic music fan would want to miss.

Since then Ultra events have been regularly taking place in various cities around the globe – Ibiza, Spain; Seoul, Korea; Tokyo, Japan; Hvar and Split, Croatia; Singapore, Singapore; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and many others. The first festival in 1999 had an attendance of the “mere” 10,000 people, and last year’s Miami event was visited by a total of over 165,000 people! The Ultra Singapore 2016 was visited by itself 45,000 people, with 2017’s festival expected to gather an ever larger amount of people.
