Ultra Brasil announces dates & location for 2016


Millions of viewers worldwide experienced the excitement of the entire Latin America upon announcing the dates for Ultra Brasil during the 19th edition of Ultra Music Festival in Miami this year. The event will take place on October 14-15 at the mesmerizing Flamengo Park in Rio and the announcement came from no other than the very first two headliners – Martin Garrix & Carl Cox.

The stunning location in Rio de Janeiro was handpicked by Ultra Worldwide and it’s close to being an exact mirror image of Bayfront Park – the home of Ultra Miami. Flamengo Park is situated on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, offering spectacular oceanfront views & unique landmarks such as Sugarloaf mountain & ‘Christ The Redeemer’.

Rio de Janeiro is sure fighting to be coronated as the cultural capital of the world by hosting Ultra & the 31st Summer Olympic Games, all in the same year.

“I couldn’t be more excited about bringing ULTRA to Rio de Janeiro. The beautiful venue chosen serves as the perfect waterfront location for the festival, very similar to the stunning Bayfront Park in Miami. This move has been many years in the making. Brasil holds a very special place in my heart, as it is where I originally launched the WorldWide concept in 2006. There genuinely is no place in the world that compares to the unique passion and energy of the Brazilian people.” – Russell Faibisch, CEO of Ultra Music Festival & Ultra Worldwide.
