Ultra Worldwide Is Coming To BRASIL

Ultra Music Festival
Ultra Worldwide reveals the next stop in their global takeover, as they announced ULTRA BRASIL 2016 !!!

Currently the largest independent electronic music festival producer in the world, ULTRA Worldwide, has already established events in an incredible 18 countries and with this announcement, Brasil will become the 19th nation to join the ever-expanding ULTRA family in October 2016.

Famed the world over for everything from its iconic tourist attractions, such as the Christ the Redeemer Statue and Iguazu Waterfalls, to their reputation as soccer’s most dominant force, Brasil is unmistakably one of THE party destinations on the planet and ULTRA’s arrival in the country will only cement this further. The arrival also marks a true landmark moment for the country, which will now see two of the world’s greatest spectacles take place in 2016 – a full-blown Ultra Music Festival, and of course, the upcoming 31st Summer Olympic Games.

ULTRA Worldwide’s global expansion actually began in Sao Paulo, Brasil in 2008, with Russell Faibisch, the Founder, Executive Producer and CEO of ULTRA Music Festival and ULTRA Worldwide, selecting the country as the first location to launch his Miami-born concept abroad. Since then, ULTRA has gone on to host festivals across the globe in Japan, Korea, South Africa, Argentina, Chile and Croatia, and soon will arrive in Brasil bigger and better than ever before.

The news comes off the back of what has been a truly momentous year for the ULTRA brand. With new events announced in Bali, Singapore, Macau, The Philippines, Bolivia, Peru and Puerto Rico in 2015, Brasil is the first new country to be announced for ULTRA Worldwide in 2016 and it remains to be seen where it will be heading to next

“I couldn’t be more excited about bringing ULTRA to Rio de Janeiro. The beautiful venue chosen serves as the perfect waterfront location for the festival, very similar to the stunning Bayfront Park in Miami. This move has been many years in the making. Brasil holds a very special place in my heart, as it is where I originally launched the WorldWide concept in 2006. There genuinely is no place in the world that compares to the unique passion and energy of the Brazilian people.”

 Russell Faibisch, CEO of Ultra Music Festival & Ultra Worldwide.


The event will take place on October 14-15 at the mesmerizing Flamengo Park in Rio, and as you can see it at the video below Carl Cox and Martin Garrix are the first confirmed headliners .
