CROATIA: Destination Ultra returned to Croatia’s Dalmatian coast this past week, as over 120,000 attendees from 148 countries enjoyed the weeklong array of events. The flagship event, Ultra Europe, was streamed live via UMFTV with hours of continuous dance music reaching 3.3 million viewers worldwide.

Kicking off on Thursday, July 13, Nicole Moudaber presented MOOD at the Resistance Opening Party at the Giraffe Palm Beach House, bringing along special guests Cristoph and Hito, all of whom laid down house and techno sets at the waterfront venue. The jubilant atmosphere at the packed club set the celebratory tone for the festivities to come. The main event, Ultra Europe, drew over 100,000 fans across three days.

Tiësto, Armin van Buuren and Hardwell closed the Ultra Main Stage each night while Dubfire B2B Nicole Moudaber, Carl Cox and Sasha & John Digweed capped off proceedings on the Resistance stage. B2B sets were the theme of the weekend for Resistance with seven head-to-head performances across the three days.

The sheer magnitude of the weeklong series of events saw revellers enjoy performances from over 140 international electronic acts across seven stages, on three islands and the Croatian mainland. From the Regatta on the island of Brač to the 5000 strong Ultra Beach on the island of Hvar, Destination Ultra left no stone unturned. Culminating with Resistance Vis at the ancient Fort George on the final day, Sasha B2B Nic Fanciulli concluded the proceedings and rounded off another successful year for the Ultra brand.

Ultra Europe is confirmed to return from July 6 – 8 2018.
