ULTRA Music Festival ambitiously entered Asia in recent years, cranking out a whopping eight-city tour of the region this past year with 6 of them happening within a 10-day period. More than 350,000 festivalgoers attended events in Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, Bali, Hong Kong, The Philippines and Japan, with 120,000 descending upon Tokyo’s Odaiba ULTRA Park alone over the course 3 days. That’s not too far off from Ultra’s flagship event in Miami that sees 165,000 (55k per day) also over 3 days. The Singaporean leg saw over 45,000 revelers across two days last year.
