Ultra has revealed attendance stats across all 2017 events, and they’re unfathomably massive. In total, more than 1million party people descended on sessions globally, a marked increase on the previous year.
During the current calendar, Ultra Worldwide hosted a staggering 45 shindigs, 23 of which had never been done before, in 20 countries. Touching down on five continents, these aren't the only jaw-dropping numbers.
1,028 artists performed, over 10,000 people were employed, and, thanks to the Ultra Stream, 3million hours of video were watched by 125million viewers. This news comes at a time when Ultra's flagship Miami event is beginning to gear up for its next edition, the 20th Anniversary no less, which takes place in the Florida city from 23rd to 25th March 2018.
