WATCH: ULTRA EUROPE 2017 AFTERMOVIE

This particular aftermovie focuses on the main 3-day ULTRA Europe festival held at Poljud Stadium, which attracted over 100,000 fans in its own right. The movie clearly demonstrates the beautiful scenery surrounding the stadium, with historic architecture, the lush blue Adriatic Sea and mountainous landscapes providing the backdrop in one of Final Kid’s most visually stunning productions to date.

A warm summer glow permeates the entire first half of the film, before night falls and signals the entry of the headline acts. The night sky is steadily doused in pyrotechnics and fireworks, lighting up the faces and flags of the diverse and jubilant crowd.

Capturing a wide array of talents across four distinct stages, from techno tastemakers such as Adam Beyer, Carl Cox and Joseph Capriati to Main Stage superstars including David Guetta, Hardwell, Martin Garrix and DJ Snake, the 4k production also showcases footage of rare back-to-back sets from Dubfire & Nicole Moudaber, Nic Fanciulli & Eats Everything, and Tuskegee label partners Seth Troxler & The Martinez Brothers, with RESISTANCE™ heavily represented throughout.

As the week continued, the additional ‘Destination ULTRA’ events: the stunning Brač Regatta, ULTRA Beach Hvar and RESISTANCE Vis all caught the imagination of paradise seekers worldwide.

ULTRA Europe is confirmed to return to Split, Croatia on July 6-8, 2018.

Additionally, we get a sneak peek inside the exclusive ULTRA campsite where the heart of the festival and all its attendees reside, before being taken to the main event at the Poljud Stadium to finish the film in true style.
Friedrichs’ inimitable methods of video production have become synonymous with the aftermovie genre over the past few years, and he outdoes himself once again with this beautiful offering – as he perfectly captures the spine-tingling atmosphere that was present across the entirety of Croatia’s Destination ULTRA week.

About ULTRA WORLDWIDE™
ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ is the global edition of the World’s Premier Electronic Music event, ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL.
The ULTRA brand was founded in 1997 by Executive Producer, President & CEO Russell Faibisch, and began producing electronic music events in South Florida, which led to the inaugural Ultra Music Festival in 1999 on the sands of Miami Beach.
The internationally renowned festival, which has taken place every March since its inception, celebrated its seventeenth anniversary from March 27-29, 2015 by bringing over 165,000 music enthusiasts to the sold out waterfront event in the heart of the City of Miami. Ultra Music Festival returns to Bayfront Park for its eighteenth annual edition, 18-20 March 2016.
Choosing to follow a unique, creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused around a true love for music, artists and fans alike, the ULTRA and ULTRA Worldwide™ brands represent not only the world’s biggest and most successful remaining INDEPENDENT electronic music festival brand, they are now the most international of any festival brand in the world by far. The event organizers continue to transport the unrivalled experience from the Miami flagship festival to an ever-growing number of destinations and fans all over the globe.
Over the past seventeen years, literally thousands of the world’s most iconic DJs, producers and live acts have mesmerized audiences with awe-inspiring sets at ULTRA festivals in ARGENTINA, BALI, BRAZIL, CHILE, CROATIA, IBIZA, JAPAN, KOREA, SOUTH AFRICA and of course MIAMI, as well as ROAD TO ULTRA® events in BOLIVIA, CHILE, COLOMBIA, MACAU, PARAGUAY, PERU, THE PHILIPPINES, PUERTO RICO, SEOUL, SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND, TOKYO and the USA. Each and every new global edition is founded on the same successful recipe that has been perfected over seventeen years in Miami, combining the most diverse electronic talent with the most technologically advanced, large-scale festival productions in the world.
In addition, the ULTRA brands pioneered the live stream experience, ‘ULTRA LIVE’ (whereby the festival is brought online to over 20 million unique viewers globally) and the audio broadcasting platform ‘UMF RADIO’ (syndicated to FM Radio in over 42 countries and reaching more than 22 million listeners weekly). Also UMF FILMS’ collaboration with FINAL KID has seen some of the most visually breathtaking festival aftermovies in the music space, including a feature-length documentary exploring the explosion of dance music, entitled CAN U FEEL IT, which premiered at the Ultra Music Festival, Miami 2012 and was exhibited in over 500 theaters across the Unites States.
