Ultra South Africa are going through a major shift this year, moving from a two-day experience to a one-day extravaganza. With this big news comes their latest announcement and a big deciding factor in the amount of tickets that will be sold: the reveal of the ticket prices.

As it stands, from August 2nd, early bird General Access tickets will be priced at R650 and the VIP tickets at R1000. The new pricing structure also brings along with it a new venue for the Cape Town leg of the festival.

Ultra South Africa announced today that Cape Town Stadium will be the host for the next event in 2017. Built to house the FIFA World Cup in 2010, the inner city stadium has a capacity of 55 000 people, making this change a major one.

The Ultra South Africa experience next year will now be reminiscent of Ultra Europe, hosted at the Poljud Stadium in Split, Croatia. While some Ultranauts have expressed their disappointment with the venue change, many have embraced the new venue as it's a landmark in Cape Town and will also mean a lot less pre-planning needed for the patrons.

In an ever-evolving world, brands such as Ultra need to make changes to deliver the best possible experience for its fans. While some might be hung up on the experience at the previous venue, the Ostrich Farm, there is no doubt that the organisors are putting together an awe-inspiring experience for 2017, and will continue doing so in the future.

Tickets go on sale on August 2nd but only to those who have registered before the end of this month. Ticket and registration details are available from the Ultra South Africa Website.
