Again demonstrating its ubiquitous presence as a worldwide festival phenomenon, Ultra has locked in a stellar, multifaceted-as-ever billing for its fifth anniversary of the global festival’s Japan installment, to take place over an extended weekend on September 15-17.
Topping phase one of the 2018 bill are high-rollers Nicky Romero, DJ Snake, Armin Van Buuren, and Zedd, as well as all three parties from Swedish House Mafia, though they appear as their separate, respective acts: Axwell Λ Ingrosso and Steve Angello.

The initial wave of talent also includes the likes of Oliver Heldens, Cash Cash, and Eats Everything among others.
The Tokyo-based festival will return to Odaiba Ultra Park. Tickets can be purchased here.

Axwell Λ Ingrosso hinted at the trio touring at New York’s Brooklyn Mirage on Memorial Day. The next month, Steve Angello confirmed the trio will be touring together next year. The Swedish dance icons’ last performance was a lauded reunion at Ultra Music Festival this year. Before that, they branded their performance at Ultra Music Festival 2013 as their final show before the trio bisbanded.
