Tiësto, Afrojack and Mr. Carmack are among the acts that have been added to the increasingly stacked 2016 lineup at Ultra South Africa. The billing already boasted headliners like Skrillex, Zedd, Dash Berlin, Galantis and Seth Troxler, but the three day, two city affair felt that was not enough to satisfy their South African fans.
In addition to the DJs mentioned above, UMF South Africa will feature names like Robin Schulz, The Martinez Brothers, Carnage, DJ Fresh, Black Coffee, Juicy M, Mark Stent and many more.
In addition to the newly minted headliners, Ultra South Africa has also unveiled the various local acts that will fill out the schedule around the international acts that sell tickets and occupy the big stages at night.
Ultra South Africa is the first Ultra Music Festival of the season, taking place about one month before the festival's main event in Miami towards the end of March.
Ultra South Africa will take place in two locations, each one getting a two-day festival. Things will kick off on Feb. 26 at the Nasrec Expo Centre in Johannesburg, ending the following day on Feb. 27. That same day, Feb. 27, things will get under way to the Southwest in Cape Town at The Ostrich Ranch until Feb. 28.
Ultra South Africa will seek to have a bigger and better festival than its 2015 edition, which featured a lineup that included names like Armin van Buuren, Oliver Heldens, Hardwell, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Martin Garrix and Gorgon City.
Tickets are on sale now for both festivals in Johannesburg and Capetown starting at R1250 and R1000 respectively for GA passes.
