Cape Town – With the paint all but dry on its huge phase one lineup announcement at the end of October, ULTRA South Africa has now confirmed the full list of artists set to perform across its four-day, two-city extravaganza this coming February.

First up, and accompanying OWSLA boss Skrillex and Billboard chart topper Zedd on headline duties across both events, will be two of the biggest names in dance music and longtime Ultra stalwarts, Tiësto and Afrojack!

The Johannesburg edition of ULTRA South Africa will feature three running stages across both days. Alongside the Main Stage, there will be a Soul Candi Live Stage on the Friday, before transforming into the RESISTANCE Stage on the Saturday.

Capetonians will have two stages on-site at ULTRA South Africa™ and the set-up will follow a similar program to that of Johannesburg, with the Main Stage complemented by a one-off stage hosted by Strange Loving on day one before evolving into the RESISTANCE Stage for the final day.

Early Bird tickets for both events sold out within hours of going on sale earlier this year, so fans will have to be quick to guarantee their spot this coming February.

For those that want to experience the action firsthand, Advance, Regular, VIP and VVIP admission tickets are now on sale for the Johannesburg and Cape Town editions, with all the necessary information below.
