Ultra Korea drops stunning 2016 aftermovie

Ultra Korea, the longest running Ultra Worldwide event outside of Miami, has dropped a stunning 4K aftermovie for its 2016 edition. With Early Bird tickets for this year’s event already sold out, advance tickets are now on sale for the landmark sixth edition of ULTRA Korea, which will be returning on June 10 & 11, 2017, to the South Korean capital of Seoul. Lauded by MTV Asia as the ‘go-to EDM Festival in Asia’ and rated as one of the seven best festivals in Asia by the South China Morning Post in 2016, over 150,000 people ended up attending the fifth edition of Ultra Korea, making it the largest electronic music event in Korean history. Furthermore, over 730,000 people ended up tuning into the festival online via YouTube and V Live. With a Phase One lineup on the way soon, demand is expected to be at an all-time high for ULTRA Korea 2017 with tickets available right here.

The beautiful aftermovie of last year’s edition follows young break-dancers and a long-boarder as they travel to the festival, accompanied by gliding shots that vividly capture the energy of the bustling and vibrant city that is Seoul. A graffiti artist is also seen preparing a piece of work, before the lens slowly turns to reveal she’s already at the Olympic Stadium – the home of ULTRA Korea 2016. The graffiti showcased in the film actually ended up becoming one of six live art activations that ran throughout the weekend, and the project, which was headed up by six different artists from around the globe, proved to be one of the highlights of the weekend. The aftermovie also features an abundance of the amazing headliners of the festival including Avicii, Deadmau5, Afrojack and Martin Garrix.

Check out the visually stunning aftermovie below and see you at Ultra Korea 2017:
