We briefly eluded not too long ago that in addition to everything else we do here, we are also massive music fans and there’s no better way to officially intro this topic here than with one of the biggest music event worldwide, ULTRA.
ULTRA South Africa, Africa’s largest electronic music festival, have recently announced some big news, for the first time in South Africa – The Chainsmokers will perform their full LIVE show on the Ultra SA main stages in March 2019.
The Chainsmokers are the only Electronic/Dance Artist with more than a billion plays on Spotify per song with their massive hits “Closer (ft. Halsey)” and “Don’t Let Me Down (ft. Daya)”.
Their debut album “Memories…Do Not Open” remains the Third-Longest-Running No. 1 on The Billboard Dance Chart, and their list of awards goes on for miles including this year’s Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Artist; Top Dance/Electronic Song & Top Dance/Electronic Album as well as a Grammy for last year’s Best Dance Recording.
“Bringing The Chainsmokers LIVE here is massive news for Ultra SA,” said Shaun Duvet, Showtime Management (Pty) Ltd, official Licensee of Ultra Worldwide.. “We have always prided ourselves on bringing only the biggest names in dance music, but the Chains have been on our wish-list for a while and we’re unbelievably excited to show local fans how incredible this duo truly is.”
The Chainsmokers not only have over a billion Spotify plays and numerous other accolades, but put on a live show that is incomparable. More International acts are set to be announced in due time but what a massive way to officially kick things off!
And in case you can’t contain yourself till then, the good news is there is a whole raft of parties next month earmarked as warmups to the actual Ultra event next year.
