ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ is the global edition of the World’s Premier Electronic Music

The ULTRA brand was founded in 1997 by Executive Producer, President & CEO
Russell Faibisch, and began producing electronic music events in South Florida,
which led to the inaugural Ultra Music Festival in 1999 on the sands of Miami Beach.
The internationally renowned festival, which has taken place every March since its
inception, celebrated its seventeenth anniversary from March 27-29, 2015 by
bringing over 165,000 music enthusiasts to the sold out waterfront event in the
heart of the City of Miami. Ultra Music Festival returns to Bayfront Park for its
eighteenth annual edition, 18-20 March 2016.

Choosing to follow a unique, creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused
around a true love for music, artists and fans alike, the ULTRA and ULTRA
Worldwide™ brands represent not only the world’s biggest and most successful
remaining INDEPENDENT electronic music festival brand, they are now the most
international of any festival brand in the world by far. The event organizers continue
to transport the unrivalled experience from the Miami flagship festival to an ever-
growing number of destinations and fans all over the globe.

Over the past eighteen years, literally thousands of the world’s most iconic DJs,
producers and live acts have mesmerized audiences with awe-inspiring sets at ULTRA
AFRICA and of course MIAMI, as well as ROAD TO ULTRA® events in BOLIVIA, CHILE,
SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND, TOKYO and the USA. Each and every new global
edition is founded on the same successful recipe that has been perfected over
eighteen years in Miami, combining the most diverse electronic talent with the most
technologically advanced, large-scale festival productions in the world.

In addition, the ULTRA brands pioneered the live stream experience, ‘ULTRA LIVE’
(whereby the festival is brought online to over 20 million unique viewers globally)
and the audio broadcasting platform ‘UMF RADIO’ (syndicated to FM Radio in over
77 countries and reaching more than 22 million listeners weekly). Also UMF FILMS’
collaboration with FINAL KID has seen some of the most visually breathtaking festival
aftermovies in the music space, including a feature-length documentary exploring
the explosion of dance music, entitled CAN U FEEL IT, which premiered at the Ultra
Music Festival, Miami 2012 and was exhibited in over 500 theaters across the Unites

2016 will see the ULTRA and ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ brands continue to push the
boundaries even further, bringing an unparalleled combination of cutting edge
productions and the world’s best electronic acts back to previous strongholds and
new frontiers across the globe. With a brand new edition of ULTRA Brasil confirmed
to take place in Rio de Janeiro in October 2016, ULTRA Singapore becoming a full
scale two-day festival in September and with ROAD TO ULTRA® entering Hong Kong
later this year, the ULTRA brand has now united TWENTY COUNTRIES across FIVE
CONTINENTS worldwide.
