ULTRA JAPAN is Japan's premium electronic music festival and this year the event is back on the weekend of September 14th and 15th. The original global music festival organized by Ultra Worldwide makes its stop in Japan where you can expect as many as 100,000 people from all over the world to gather together in experiencing the best DJ’s on the planet.
Like the previous five years, ULTRA JAPAN will be held in Tokyo in Odaiba's ULTRA Park II.
Every year Ultra specializes in using the ultimate stages for audio-visual performance headliners that stimulate the crowd’s 5 senses to the max-level! This year’s festival will include the MAIN STAGE, RESISTANCE STAGE, and ULTRA PARK STAGE as well as a fashionable Onitsuka Tiger street. Attendees can also lounge around in the free space between sets on air cushions and even have a small picnic with friends. Doesn’t matter where you go, ULTRA has it all prepared for everyone to enjoy.
Tickets always sell out quickly so if you are looking to participate in this epic festival be sure to check the ULTRA JAPAN website as early as February for early bird discount tickets. Regular prices for ULTRA JAPAN are usually available for around 15,000 JPY for a single day pass or 30,000 for a single day VIP pass. There’s also an option to purchase a special two-day ticket for 27,000 JPY.

This event is the peak of youth culture and style, and expect to see people going all out in make-up, hairstyle, and fashion. Groups often attend together in matching styles which may be somewhat unique to Japan.
Towards the end of each night, an epic firework show is displayed over the main stage to close things out. ULTRA JAPAN is a must-attend event for anyone that is looking for great electronic music and unforgettable performances.
