Electronic music festival ULTRA is making its MENA region debut, amping up the volume in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island open-air Etihad Park in March 2023. The festival has been a space for various niche and subgenres of electronic music ever since it was founded in 1999. Over the years, it has touched down in Peru, Colombia, South Africa, Singapore, China, Australia, Spain, Croatia, and more.

On March 4th and 5th ULTRA will bring their usual hypnotizing and yet-to-be-announced lineup to the region, between two stages, the Main Stage and a house and techno stage by ULTRA Worldwide’s brand RESISTANCE. They’ve previously hosted stars of the genre including Swedish House Mafia, Armin van Buuren, Carl Cox, and Claude VonStroke, who’ll fire up the decks at the upcoming ULTRA Miami 2023. The festival tickets are now available for pre-registration through ultraabudhabi.com.
