Ultra Brasil 2017 – Phase One Lineup – Ultra Brasil unveils the first set of names for its second edition, set to take place on a now expanded three-day affair from October 12th through October 14 this year. 2016’s debut sold out event saw over 60,000 fans crowd the legendary Sambódromo in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. 2017 is expected to exceed that number considerably, with extended venue capacity.
Trance giant Armin Van Buuren announced his performance via the Ultra Music Festival 2017 livestream at the end of March. David Guetta and Alesso have also been added to take on Rio this October. These two will ignite the Main Stage, bringing their globally charting hits and highly energetic stage presence to South America’s most beautiful metropolitan city.
On the Resistance front, Hot Creations head honcho Jamie Jones will perform alongside recently reunited Sasha & John Digweed, Drumcode techno curator Adam Beyer, Italian mainstay Joseph Capriati and The Martinez Brothers. More names will be revealed soon.
Ultra Brasil has also announced unique travel packages featuring bundled flights, hotel deals and in-festival transportation. More information regarding travel packages will be announced May 9, 2017. Furthermore, cashless funding will return for the 2017 edition, giving festivalgoers the option of ditching their credit cards in exchange for designated cashless cards. As an upgraded convenience, attendees will be able to preload funds onto their cashless account in advance to save time at the festival. Cashless funding will be available from May 9 until October 10, 2017.
Ultranauts will be pleased to know that Ultra Worldwide‘s global customer loyalty program, Ultra Passport, has now been launched in Brasil. Ultra Passport holders can accrue points to progress their passport level for further festivals.
In the rapidly expanding Ultra Worldwide calendar, Ultra Brasil will mark the final festival of 2017, after crossing through multiple locations across South America the previous week.
