I’ve got good news for dance music fans around the country! After announcing that David Guetta and Martin Garrix will be performing at next year’s Ultra South Africa earlier this year, the organization has added more big names to the biggest dance festival in the country. Dash Berlin, KSHMR and DJ Snake join the festival as headliners while Black Coffee, Felix Jaehn, Headhunterz and Nic Fanciulli round off the impressive list of supporting acts.
DASH BERLIN is no stranger to ULTRA South Africa; this Dutch trance veteran has been contributing to the international scene for over a decade. He’s worked with icons such as Justin Timberlake, Usher, N.E.R.D. and Lenny Kravitz to name just a few. His performance on ULTRA South Africa’s main stage in 2016 blew the crowd away; expect Dash to bring energy levels to a peak at ULTRA in February.
KSHMR (pronounced Kashmir), real name Niles Hollowell-Dhar, was awarded “The Highest New Entry” on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ list, and has since moved up 11 places this year to the No.12 spot. As a producer, he’s one of the world’s best and most loved, but as a live act he takes things to a whole new level.
DJ SNAKE is the French DJ and record producer stunning the dance music world with his ability to create smash hit after smash hit. He most recently launched his first studio album ‘Encore’ featuring collaborations with icons Justin Bieber, Skrillex and more. DJ SNAKE was also behind one of the biggest and most iconic soundtracks of this generation, his collaboration with Major Lazer – “Lean On”. Expect to hear a range of unreleased future hits from Snake’s performance at ULTRA South Africa.
The eclectic support lineup is packed full of international superstars including HEADHUNTERZ, real name William Rebergen, the Dutch DJ who is known for his hard hitting, energetic sets and who has worked with previous ULTRA South Africa artists like W&W and Krewella. HEADHUNTERZ will be shaking up the sound with his banging big room set in Cape Town and JHB.
Next up, FELIX JAEHN, the prodigal German tropical house DJ and producer that went number 1 in 20 countries with his remix of OMI’s cheerleader, will bring a summer sound to SA that that will surely get the girls dancing and the boys smiling.
ULTRA South Africa will also be bringing the RESISTANCE stage back, with its deep and grimy sound for those that like to get down and dirty….
NIC FANCIULLI needs little introduction after completing a truly successful RESISTANCE world tour in 2016 with ULTRA Worldwide. Anyone who watched him on the RESISTANCE stages around the world or was at the legendary Space Ibiza closing party will know exactly how good this British DJ and producer is at getting a dance floor going, and keeping it going long into the night.
Joining Nic on this year’s RESISTANCE program is BLACK COFFEE. Undoubtedly South Africa’s proudest current export, he started his career around 1995 and since then has played at P Diddy’s house party in Miami, taken home gold at the DJ Awards in Ibiza, remixed Avicii’s ‘Lay Me Down’ and much, much more. Expect him to bring his magical A-Game to the stage; something that Ultranauts will remember long after the festival is over.
Ultra South Africa also announced it’s impressive local line-up which will feature TiMO ODV, Pascal & Pearce, Euphonik, Crazy White Boy, P.H, DJ Milkshake, DJ Shimza, Vigilante, DJ Dimplez, Kyle Watson, Strange Loving, Mark Stent, Ryan Murgatroyd, Vimo, Chunda Munki, Kyle Cassim, Yeti, Deam Feul, Household Funk, Saubomb and Ricardo Da Costa.
The epic event will be heading to Cape Town on the 24th of February and to Johannesburg on the 25th of February.
