Ultra Shanghai canceled a week before its occurrence

For weeks, rumors of Ultra Shanghai’s demise have swirled across Reddit, leaving hopeful festival-goers wondering if they’d be able to attend a second year of the Chinese event. Unfortunately, the festival has announced its postponement and will not be taking place Sept. 8 and 9, due to “circumstances beyond [the festival organizers’] control.”

Rumors of Ultra Shanghai’s cancellation began circulating on Chinese social media platform Weibo last month, but were unconfirmed until the Ultra China team released an official statement on Aug. 31. Prior to the statement, a lineup had not been announced, leaving fans further speculating if it would happen.

Though the festival’s cancellation will surely disappoint those who were anticipating a Shanghai date, the Ultra China team announced that Ultra Beijing would, in fact, be taking place in just a few weeks on Sept. 15 and 16 at Beijing China NHC Base. The newly announced lineup includes¬†Zedd, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Oliver Heldens, and more. The full lineup is available here.¬†Beijing is more than 750 miles from Shanghai.

The inaugural edition of Ultra China took place at the Shanghai Expo Park in 2017 and boasted an impressive lineup of Armin Van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Porter Robinson, DJ Snake, and many more.
