ULTRA Korea has dropped a stunning 4K Aftermovie for its 2016 edition. With Early Bird tickets for this year’s event already sold out, Advance tickets are now on sale for the landmark sixth edition of ULTRA Korea, which will be returning on June 10 & 11, 2017, to the South Korean capital of Seoul.
Focusing on local talent, the Final Kid production tracks a group of young break-dancers and a long-boarder as they travel to the festival, accompanied by gliding shots that vividly capture the energy of the bustling and vibrant city that is Seoul. A graffiti artist is also seen preparing a piece of work, before the lens slowly turns to reveal she’s already at the Olympic Stadium – the home of ULTRA Korea 2016. The graffiti showcased in the film actually ended up becoming one of six live art activations that ran throughout the weekend, and the project, which was headed up by six different artists from around the globe, proved to be one of the highlights of the weekend.
Lauded by MTV Asia as the ‘go-to EDM Festival in Asia’ and rated as one of the seven best festivals in Asia by the South China Morning Post in 2016, over 150,000 people ended up attending the fifth edition of ULTRA Korea, making it the largest electronic music event in Korean history. Furthermore, over 730,000 people ended up tuning into the festival online via YouTube and V Live.
Advance tickets, now available at umfkorea.com, are priced at 165,000 KRW for Korean residents and 165 USD for those based overseas for the full two-day experience. With a Phase One lineup on the way soon, demand is expected to be at an all-time high for ULTRA Korea 2017. Fans are advised to act fast in order to avoid any disappointment.
