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.
