Day 1

Ultra Mainstage: DJ Snake | Axwell Λ Sebastian Ingrosso | Hardwell | Endless Summer | MYKRIS | TYT | Ares Carter | Kiyoto | MII

To begin! A hearty congratulations to DJ Snake, who closed out the festival’s mainstage on Saturday night for the 3rd time in Ultra Japan! He is without a doubt a fan favorite among festival goers, and we have a feeling that his performance this year will raise the bar for his career. Featuring his collection of popular songs including “Let Me Love You”, “Loco Contigo” and “Propaganda”.

The highlights of Day 1 included Axwell Λ Sebastian Ingrosso performing a stunning set loaded with nostalgia and high-octane beats that wowed the audience. Axwell Λ Sebastian Ingrosso members of the Swedish House Mafia presented their newest single, ‘Ray of Solar’ and their newest ID is said to be titled ‘Not Yesterday’. As Hardwell launched into his brand-new, loud, dark, and throbbing techno sound, the stage was bathed in flashes of green light from all sides.
