This year’s edition of the always incredible Ultra Japan featured one of the festival’s most stacked lineups that you will see at any of their worldwide locations. The event hosted some of the biggest names in all of electronic music such as Alesso, The Chainsmokers, Hardwell, KSHMR, Steve Angello and many more. Fortunately for us, Ultra is known to constantly live stream countless sets throughout the weekend and now those who were unable to attend are able to hear them in their entirety.
One of the main highlights of the festival was Hardwell’s absolutely ridiculous hour and a half set that he threw down in the pouring rain. As always, he played multiple IDs including his highly-anticipated collaboration with KSHMR “Power” along with his upcoming ID with Afrojack set to be released later this year. He also dropped Martin Garrix’s new song with Matisse & Sadko entitled “Forever,” which he combined with the “Reload” acapella for one of his all time greatest mashups.
The Chainsmokers also had an extremely notable set during Ultra Japan that is worth a listen. They are known for not having their live sets recorded during most of their performances at festivals so we are fortunate enough to have a high quality version of one of their best sets to date. Their performances contain a much different sound than most of us are used to from their recent productions that are definitely more pop-infused so EDM fans get the best of both worlds as the duo dropped countless remixes and edits of their most famous hits.
