Ultra South Africa drops entire line-up

Merely a week after revealing the Phase One Lineup for their marquee event at Bayfront Park in Miami, Ultra have dropped the entire roster for the second edition of Ultra South Africa. After the resounding reception it recieved in the first installment from a thunderous crowd of approximately 40,000 ravers, there was unimpeachable excitement within the African dance music lovers with regards to the second edition. And with the revelation of this kind of a line-up, Ultra have proved why they are one of the best in the business when it comes to delivering a cracking artist index.

Still reeling from the death of their co-founder Alex Omes, Ultra are back to business and have announced the Phase 2 Lineup which completes the artist inventory of their first festival of the calendar year. Joining the list of pre-existing headliners like Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Hardwell, Armin Van Buuren and the latest entrant into the Forbes ’30 under 30′ list, Martin Garrix are Canadian brother duo DVBBS, 19-year old Dutch prodigy Oliver Heldens and English duo Gorgon City.

A stacked line-up was expected, given the fact that this is just the second edition of the festival in South Africa and, keeping that in mind, Ultra have incorporated native talent to keep things glistening.
