Trance heavyweight Armin Van Buuren announced his performance via the Ultra Music Festival 2017 livestream at the end of March. David Guetta and Alesso have also been added to take on Rio this October. These two will ignite the Main Stage, bringing their globally charting hits and highly energetic stage presence to South America’s most beautiful metropolitan city. On the RESISTANCE front, Hot Creations head honcho Jamie Jones will perform alongside recently reunited Sasha & John Digweed, Drumcode techno curator Adam Beyer, Italian mainstay Joseph Capriati and The Martinez Brothers. More names will be revealed soon.
Ultra Brasil has also announced unique travel packages featuring bundled flights, hotel deals and in-festival transportation. More information regarding travel packages will be announced May 9, 2017. Furthermore, cashless funding will return for the 2017 edition, giving festivalgoers the option of ditching their credit cards in exchange for designated cashless cards. As an upgraded convenience, attendees will be able to preload funds onto their cashless account in advance to save time at the festival. Cashless funding will be available from May 9 until October 10, 2017.
In the rapidly expanding ULTRA Worldwide calendar, ULTRA Brasil will mark the final festival of 2017, after crossing through multiple locations across South America the previous week.
