Ultra South Africa has announced that it’s set to return to Mzansi for its ninth edition in March 2024.

The festival is Africa's largest electronic music festival and is part of Ultra Music Festival's worldwide expansion which has now extended to twenty countries.

As ever, Ultra South Africa will be a single day event taking place in two cities - Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Having debuted in 2014, Ultra South Africa is now one of the longest standing world editions of the festival.

Despite the festival being shrouded in controversy following Costa Titch’s death at Ultra South Africa 2023, the festival broke attendance records once again.

Ultra is now anticipating a huge demand for tickets for its 2024 edition, and has unveiled a ticket registration prior to its official on-sale launch.

The system will see fans receive the chance to buy limited Tier 1 tickets at launch-phase pricing, which are the most affordable tickets available.

Attendees can register for tickets on the Ultra website before Tier 1 tickets officially go on sale on August 1.

In a press release sent to IOL, the event organiser explained, “Ultra Worldwide continues to cement its status as the most international music festival brand.

“Boasting active events on all six inhabited continents, including the flagship Ultra Music Festival in Miami, the global festival brand is heralded for delivering an unparalleled combination of top-tier electronic talent, cutting-edge technology and large-scale productions.”

The Cape Town leg of the show will be held on Friday, March 1 at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth Racecourse, while the Johannesburg leg will be on Saturday, March 2 at the Expo Centre at Nasrec.

General Access tickets are from R695, while VIP tickets start from R1,500. VVIP (Johannesburg only) tickets are from R3 500. Ticket prices are all-inclusive, with no additional or hidden fees.
