Ultra SA Blew My Mind, But Will It Continue To Do So?

Ultra SA knocked on our doors, partied hard and fast with us, then left as fast as they had come in, but the memories of the party are still on a playback loop

So Ultra SA knocked on our doors, partied hard and fast with us, then left as fast as they had come in, but the memories of the party are still on a playback loop not unlike that of a record player with a skipping needle.

The good news is, is that it wasn’t just a once off and if you didn’t know by now, the massive EDM party will be back for the next 5 years.

I was fortunate enough to organise a media pass and had quite a few of my images used by Ultra SA for social media purposes. A few of the headline DJ acts even shared and retweeted a few of the posts (yes I’m bragging, please make room for my head :P)!

For next year I;d like to see a better production in terms of the visual awe. Don’t get me wrong, the light show was impressive, as were the pyrotechnics, but when you compare it to the setups of Ultra Miami and Tomorrowland, it’s almost like having a 2 year old’s art compared to a renaissance master. Good effort, but there’s some big shoes to fill. So with the commitment to return to SA shores for the next 5 years, does this mean that the stage setups and overall production will be ramped up as well? One can only hope.

But until next year, let’s keep the electric party mood going throughout 2014! See some of the photos I took below.
