Ultra South Africa 2020 has just closed their gates, struck down those massive stages and packed the iconic U's away after the weekend's shows. But the shows have already left an indelible mark! 

As soon as they opened at midday, excited attendees streamed through the Ostrich Ranch gates in Cape Town.

The Main Stage and Resistance lineups proved too tempting to put anyone off, and the venue ended up at maximum capacity with thousands of smiling, singing fans watching cakes being thrown and pyrotechnics lighting up the night sky.

In Johannesburg, Nasrec was also filled to capacity from early on until the last song played, rivalling the insane noise of the Soweto Derby right next door. 

Kudos to event organisers and SAPS that it was an incident-free festival and the only things people left with were smiles and unbelievable memories.

The international Main Stage lineup of DJ Snake, Black Coffee, Steve Aoki, Afrojack and more brought the heat to both cities.

"Ultra South Africa 2020 was, as they always are, the best one we have produced to date", commented Ultra SA Founders, Shaun Duvet and Tony Feldman. "These shows are such massive projects to pull together and each year when we see it all come together with the incredible teams that join us each year in making this happen, we feel very proud. We cannot wait for 2021 and all the years to come as the shows get bigger and wilder. Watch this space, South Africa!"

Ultra South Africa returns on 26 and 27 February 2021.
