TIO recently shared the news of Ultra’s expansion into Australia’s festivals market. Well, it doesn’t end there. The U.S. EDM brand has bigger, global plans.

Ultra will move into China with a two-day fest in Shanghai from Sept. 9-10, before turning its attention to new Road to Ultra events in Australia and India. The Australia leg of Road to Ultra will take place initially in Melbourne at an unspecified date in February 2018, with events in Melbourne and Sydney slated for the following year. New Delhi will host a date this September, and a second India show will take place in Mumbai next February.

While Ultra expands, Mysteryland contracts. Organisers have scrapped Mysteryland USA 2017 citing “unforeseen circumstances.”

The fourth annual EDM festival was scheduled for June 9-12 at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in New York, with headliners LCD Soundsystem, G-Eazy, and Major Lazer and others.
