Dubbed “Road To Ultra Thailand”, the ultimate dance music experience is being brought to the Thai capital by Samsung Galaxy as part of an unprecedented world tour to promote the EDM “event of events”.

Ultra Worldwide is the global brand of the World’s Premier Electronic Music event Ultra Music Festival. The Ultra brand was founded in 1997 by Executive Producer, President & CEO Russell Faibisch, who started producing electronic music events in Florida, which led to the inaugural Ultra Music Festival in 1999 on the sands of Miami Beach.
The internationally renowned festival, which has taken place every March since its inception, celebrated its 16th anniversary from March 28-30, 2014 by bringing over 165,000 music enthusiasts to the sold out waterfront event in the heart of the City of Miami.

Choosing to follow a unique, creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused around a true love for music among artists and fans alike, Ultra Worldwide is not only the world’s biggest and most successful remaining independent electronic music festival brand, it is now the most international of any festival brand in the world by far.
Over the past 16 years, literally thousands of the world’s most iconic DJs, producers and live acts have mesmerized audiences with awe-inspiring sets at Ultra festivals in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Croatia, Ibiza, South Korea, Japan, Colombia, Chile, Taiwan, South Africa, and of course Miami.


Each and every new global edition has been founded on the same successful formula that has been perfected over 16 years in Miami, combining the most diverse electronic talent with the most technologically advanced, large scale festival productions in the world.
The 18-year-old Dutch breakthrough Martin Garrix will be one of the four headliners performing at this epic debut event, along with Stockholm-born Alessandro Lindblad Alesso, who will set the floor on fire for the first time in Bangkok with his pulsating progressive set. EDM fans look forward to Willem van Hanegem and Wardt van der Harst, collectively known as W&W, who will bring their uplifting and melodic elements of trance with the raw intensity of electro and progressiveness of house. And what Ultra EDM party would it be without one of the most defining figures in house music, the famous Fedde Le Grand, who certainly won’t fail to please the BKK crowd.

In addition, local electronic artists, including DJ Sunzone, Oatawa, Kolor One and Funky Gangster will provide musical support for this much-awaited festival.

Samsung Galaxy presents Road To Ultra Thailand will take place on Friday, September 26, 2014, from 5pm onwards at Hall 106, Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Center. Tickets are B2,500 and B3,300. Pre-event tickets are available at and Limited Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the event. Age restriction: age 20 years and over. Valid IDs or passports are required for entry. For more information, visit
