Ultra Japan drops its 2nd wave of artists
In four short years, Ultra’s Japan iteration has quickly become the largest festival in the country. The brand’s expertise in crafting international festivals has set a new standard there with its impeccable production and strong lineups.
This year is no different — the second phase of artists has just been released as the festival’s start date of September 16 looms closer. Joining alongside talent which already includes Alesso, The Chainsmokers, and Pendulum, the newest wave of talent includes other mainstage residents such as Nicky Romero and Rob Squire’s other super-group, Knife Party. KSHMR, Underworld, and Tchami will also be making their Japanese debut.
On the underground side, synth wizard Stephan Bodzin will be joining the Resistance fray, alongside Eats Everything, John Rundell, and more.
Ultra Japan’s 2017 edition unfolds across September 16-18 in its usual digs of Odaiba Ultra Park.
