It's today! Yup after a year of waiting Ultra South Africa is back for its fourth consecutive year and kicking things off in style at the Cape Town Stadium in Greenpoint today. There's not much more that needs to be said that hasn't already been said in the build up to this monumental event in the electronic dance music scene, with international headliners, the best local artists on offer as well as world class lighting and pyrotechnics that will blow your mind over the next two days. Just to keep you in the know we're providing you with some vital information that you will need to know should you be attending either today in Cape Town or in Johannesburg tomorrow.
Getting to the venue, Ultra South Africa have teamed up with the world's leading taxi service Uber to bring you a hassle free service travelling to and from the venues. New to Uber? Simply visit your app store and download the app to your mobile device, register using the code ULTRASA2017 and receive R100 off your first ride! There will be designated "Uber Zones" at each venue so make sure you are there when requesting one to ensure you get a car fast and efficiently.
