Armin van Buuren, Hardwell and more are set to appear

Ultra South Africa has just revealed the first part of its 2015 line-up. After bringing its massive festival to Africa for the first time in 2014, Ultra is looking to build on earlier success with its 2015 festival on 13th — 14th February in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

The phase one line-up features massive headliners Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren and Axwell^Ingrosso. The rest of the phase one line-up includes: Kent, Protoculture, Roger Goode and South African talents Black Coffee, Goldfish and Fresh & Euphonik.

“As Ultra expands to all corners of the globe, continuing to bring the festival to new frontiers, there truly may not be a more beautiful location than South Africa.” said Ultra CEO and founder Russell Faibisch.

Over 40,000 fans attended the 2014 festival, making it the largest electronic music festival in African history. As these DJs bring their heavy beats to the Nesrec Expo Grounds in Johannesburg and Ostrich Farm in Cape Town, the festival will surely attract another huge crowd in 2015.

“In year 1 of Ultra South Africa we set the tone, now in year 2 we have learned a whole bunch of new tricks and can’t wait to show the South African public an experience they will never forget,” said Shane Duvet, founding partner of Ultra South Africa.
