With over 60,000 attendees expected to descend upon Croatia for the debut edition of the annual event next Summer, ULTRA EUROPE will take place at the beautiful Poljud Stadium in SPLIT for days 1 & 2, while the 3rd and final day will see the event hop to the Hotel Amfora Grand Beach Resort on the stunning island of HVAR – just a short ferry journey away. Performances from all 3 days will be streamed globally through UMF TV and UMF Radio.
Besides being the only European edition of the world-renowned Ultra Music Festival next year, ULTRA EUROPE will also be one of the first major events of its kind in Croatia following the country’s expected entrance into the European Union on 1st July 2013. It is also predicted that the ULTRA EUROPE festival will inject more than 20 MILLION EUROS (over 150 MILLION KUNA) into Croatia’s economy over the next 5 years, and is considered to be one of the most important investments in the Croatian tourism and entertainment industry in recent times.
“Electronic music is one of the most popular and fastest growing genres in the world, and the Ultra Music Festival has been recognized as one of the leading festivals of that genre. Taking into consideration the highly developed music scene in Croatia and the excellent reputation of Split and Hvar as top tourist destinations, the decision to bring Ultra Music Festival and the incredible experience it has to offer to Croatia – in the form of Ultra Music Festival Croatia – was an easy one to make. We strongly believe that electronic music fans are acutely aware of what Ultra Music Festival represents and will come in great numbers to share this amazing experience in both Split and Hvar this July”.
The recent boom in music tourism in that region, coupled with Croatia’s expected entry into the European Union in July 2013, makes perfect sense for us from a business perspective. Concerning talent; whilst we’re not yet at liberty to disclose the finer details regarding specific artists for Ultra Music Festival Croatia 2013 at this stage, what I can say is that since its inception back in 1999, Ultra has always prided itself upon programming the most forward thinking, innovative line-ups any festival in the world has to offer. With regards to Ultra Music Festival Croatia, we have whole-heartedly committed to upholding this tradition and I can personally guarantee that this year’s programme will be no exception.”
“Ultra Europe will undoubtedly be one of the most important music events in the region in 2013. We are very proud that we as local partners can give our support and host such a reputable event in the cities of Split and Hvar. There is no question that Ultra Music Festival Croatia 2013 will make a significant and positive impact on the region as it looks to attract thousands of music lovers to these historical regions each summer for 3 days of truly world-class electronic music and entertainment. I am confident that the beautiful Adriatic Sea and Islands of the area will be a perfect setting for Ultra Croatia and will attract many to come and experience all that both Ultra and Croatia have to offer”.
A limited number of early bird tickets for days 1 & 2 at the Poljud Stadium will go on sale on December 5, priced at a staggeringly cheap €40 (300 Kuna).
