As the days go by, we're creeping ever closer to 2015 and with it brings anticipation of the Ultra 2015. It was with out a doubt the biggest dance festival SA has seen to date and next years show promises to be bigger and better. Last week the organisers released Phase One of the international DJ headliners and just like this year, some big names were announced. Three out of the five are featured in DJ Mag's Top 5 DJ's for 2014 so you know they're not slacking on getting just any DJ to headline the event, here are the 5.
Number 1 DJ in the world for the second year in a row, he toured SA last year December to sellout crowds around the country and after see him play, I can see why he is ranked at the top. Professional at what he does and creates some great music.
One of the stand out DJ's from this years event, Martin Garrix is coming back to rock our crowds. The young disc jockey sensation was recently boosted up the rankings to number 4 in the DJ Mag Top 100 list, a major achievement given his age and time in the industry.
Armin van Buuren
He is a legend in his own right, with his record label, Amarda Music being one of the biggest in electronic music and his radio show A State Of Trance having gone through the years, just growing bigger and bigger. He has done so much for electronic and trance music, helping younger DJ's come through his ranks and turning them into superstars. I personally can't wait to see his set.
Axwell Λ Ingrosso
They made up two thirds of the award winning Swedish House Mafia, good friends Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso have teamed up once again and are coming back to our country. I'm sure die hard SHM fans will be happy to see this duo as it is probably the closest thing we will see to the now non existent Mafia.
Some of the local artists that were also announced in the phase one line up include, Goldfish, Protoculture, Pascal & Pearce, Euphonik, Rodger Goode, DJ Kent and Black Coffee. So far that is an incredible line up and there is still more to come! So keep an eye out on this blog for more info related to the upcoming Ultra South Africa.
