Ultra Japan, the Japanese outdoor electronic music festival that is a part of Ultra Music Festival’s worldwide expansion, has just announced a massive 2 phase lineup for its 4th annual edition, planned to be held on September 16-18 in Odaiba Ultra Park.
ULTRA Japan will be host to 6 live debut international performances, with KSHMR, Tchami, Underworld, Empire of the Sun, Pendulum and Porter Robinson on the newly formed “LIVE” Stage. The Live Stage will be hosting some of Japan’s very biggest local talents, including acts such as Crossfaith, Miyavi and Wednesday Campanella performing at the festival for the first time.
With Alesso, The Chainsmokers, Hardwell, Kygo, Steve Angello, Steve Aoki and Tiësto already announced, Phase Two also sees two more Ultra favorites, Knife Party and Nicky Romero, returning to the Main Stage, following up each of their groundbreaking performances in 2016 and 2015 respectively. Local talent on the Main Stage will include a performance from producer extraordinaire, Yasutaka Nakata.
Since its inception two years ago, the “Resistance” stage in particular has been an integral part of the ULTRA Japan experience and 2017 will see the brand reach even greater heights, with a bigger production prepared and some of the very best names in house and techno announced.
With Carl Cox, Joseph Capriati, Sasha & John Digweed and Seth Troxler already headlining, Resistance stage will also be bringing Jon Rundell to Tokyo alongside Eats Everything, Nic Fanciulli and Stephan Bodzin. As always, the local Japanese talent will be out in full force, with true techno staples like Fumiya Tanaka, Ken Ishii and Takkyu Ishino all laying it down.
Ultra Japan will be the final date for Ultra’s worldwide run of shows in Asia for 2017, with Ultra Korea and Ultra Singapore already done. The brand will be hustling quick, taking eight stops in September with two in India, and one each in China, Taiwan, Bali, the Philippines, and Hong Kong, before wrapping it up in Japan.
