Ultra releases Phase 1 lineup for Australia takeoverUltra Australia ImageEdit 01

Ultra’s first foray into Australian territory took place during its Road To Ultra series in 2018. The following year, the megafestival officially touched down in Sydney and Melbourne. Its debut run down under proved an overwhelming success, setting up its return for March 2020. Now, the first wave of artists for both Sydney and Melbourne have been revealed.

Eric Prydz will be performing twice at each event, once as himself and once under his darker Cirez D alias. The progressive house leader recently announced he’d be honoring his deceased superfan, James Lillo, in taking his ashes along with him for the journey. Lillo passed away from cancer not long after his diagnosis in 2016, inspiring Prydz to name a song after him.

Other talents making up Ultra Australia’s first phase billing include veterans DJ Snake, Zedd, Afrojack, and Dash Berlin, along with some house and techno representation from UMEK, Luciano, and Deborah De Luca. Tickets are available here.

“After watching the success of the event in Miami over the last 20 years and across the globe, it’s time we experienced this fantastic festival down under,” Ultra organizers said.

When Nina Las Vegas plays Melbourne, she makes it bounce.

The Australian producer stopped by Boiler Room Melbourne to take part in MELBOURNE: ON AIR. Produced with Nike as a part of the brand’s annual Air Max Day celebration — an event that specifically spotlights Nike’s ‘swoosh’ embossed footwear line — MELBOURNE: ON AIR enlisted a number of artists to spin their sounds, including Nina Las Vegas, Basenji, Strict Face, and more.

Nina Las Vegas fans can now watch the producer’s full-length Boiler Room set, and as usual, she doesn’t disappoint.
