Following the success of the first ever ULTRA Korea last year (which saw 60,000 revelers attend the 2-day event and witness its 40-superstar-strong bill take over 3 mammoth stages), coupled with the 'Road To ULTRA Korea' event which marked the halfway point to 2013's festival with the likes of Diplo, Major Lazer, Hardwell, R3hab and Dillon Francis; the stage has now been well and truly set for an unbelievable experience when the World's Premier Electronic Music Experience returns to Asia in the form of ULTRA Korea 2013.
ULTRA Korea 2013 is poised to solidify its position as the 'must attend' dance music event in Asia, with a whole host of new surprises in store for its 2nd outing. For now, the remainder of the talent playing at this year's ULTRA Korea - which will include a selection of the world's top DJs AND Live Acts - is being kept tightly under wraps, but taking into account the icons that have already been confirmed and with performances from the likes of Tiësto, Skrillex and Steve Aoki at the first installment, it's guaranteed that this year's line up will be nothing short of spectacular.
Tickets go on sale on Monday 21st January, so be sure to head over to the ULTRA Korea website or Facebook page for more information on these and all exclusive updates. Stay connected for line up announcements and more news about ULTRA Korea as it prepares to bring you another incredible festival.
