Ultra Japan is gearing up its fifth anniversary, happening from September 15th through 17th, with a huge list of talent from techno, EDM and beyond. The brand has had a lot of success in Asia over the years, and Japan’s installation is one of the longest running in the region next to the South Korean edition.
Lined up are EDM heavy hitters like Nicky Romero, DJ Snake, Zedd, and Axwell Λ Ingrosso, as well as former Swedish House Mafia collaborator Steve Angello, and the king of trance, Armin van Buuren.
Having all three Swedes at the same festival begs the question—might fans witness a surprise performance from the previously disbanded trio? They reunited earlier this year at Ultra’s flagship location in Miami, so we’ll just have to wait and see, but it sure looks promising.
The list of house and techno DJs hitting up the main arena and RESISTANCE stage is also impressive, with Sven Väth Tchami x Malaa, Nina Kraviz, Carl Craig, Jackmaster, and a back-to-back set from John Digweed and Nicole Moudaber all lined up.
