Ultra Music Festival teases China debut

Ultra Music Festival's flagship event in Miami took place this past weekend and just ahead of Martin Garrix's set it was announced that Ultra would be traveling to China this year for the first time ever.

All we know for sure is that it will happen sometime in September but in what city and if it will be a full-blown multi-day event remains to be seen. It's also rumored that it will take place in Shanghai but this too is unconfirmed.

Watch a snippet of the announcement below and we'll feed you through more information as it comes.

ULTRA Music Festival ambitiously entered Asia in recent years, cranking out a whopping eight-city tour of the region this past year with 6 of them happening within a 10-day period. More than 350,000 festivalgoers attended events in Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, Bali, Hong Kong, The Philippines and Japan, with 120,000 descending upon Tokyo's Odaiba ULTRA Park alone over the course 3 days. That's not too far off from Ultra's flagship event in Miami that sees 165,000 (55k per day) also over 3 days. The Singaporean leg saw over 45,000 revelers across two days last year.
