Yes! American EDM group The Chainsmokers are the first act confirmed for Ultra South Africa 2019 – and the performance will be the group’s first South Africa performance.

The group’s debut album “Memories…Do Not Open” remains the Third-Longest-Running No. 1 on The Billboard Dance Chart, and their list of awards goes on for miles including this year’s Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Artist; Top Dance/Electronic Song & Top Dance/Electronic Album as well as a Grammy for last year’s Best Dance Recording.

“Bringing The Chainsmokers LIVE here is massive news for Ultra SA,” says Shaun Duvet, Showtime Management (Pty) Ltd, official Licensee of Ultra Worldwide.. “We have always prided ourselves on bringing only the biggest names in dance music, but the Chains have been on our wish-list for a while and we’re unbelievably excited to show local fans how incredible this duo truly is.”

The group has released a string of new singles over the past few weeks which will accumulate with their second studio album ‘Sick Boy’ in March 2019 – just in time for Ultra South Africa.

The Chainsmokers are the first international headliners announced for the 2019 show with more acts still to be announced in the coming weeks.
