Following a third consecutive record-breaking edition in July 2015, ULTRA Europe, ‘Europe’s Premier Destination Music Festival’, finally reveals the eagerly anticipated official aftermovie, now available for all to enjoy in glorious 4K!
Documenting what is officially the largest electronic music festival in Croatia’s history, this breath-taking piece of videography is certain to whet the appetites of the scores of Ultranauts preparing to make the annual pilgrimage to the Dalmatian coast later this year.
Created and directed by Charly Friedrich’s critically acclaimed Final Kid team, the nine-minute masterpiece showcases the wild array of talent on show across at Destination ULTRA, as we witness superstar acts from all walks of electronic music such as Alesso, Armin van Buuren, Axwell^Ingrosso, Carl Cox, The Chemical Brothers, David Guetta, Marco Carola, Solomun, Steve Angello and Tiësto bringing their signature sounds to the masses.
Kicking off in the heart of Split, the movie takes us on a journey across Destination ULTRA – Croatia Music Week, as we witness each unique event across the seven-day extravaganza.
Ultranauts are instantly transported back to July 2015, as we witness the one-off yacht party at Zlatni Rat Beach, a sold-out ULTRA Beach party in Hvar and the unparalleled RESISTANCE-themed closing party that was held at an abandoned fort on the Island of Vis, all in the space of minutes of the movie starting.
Additionally, we get a sneak peek inside the exclusive ULTRA campsite where the heart of the festival and all its attendees reside, before being taken to the main event at the Poljud Stadium to finish the film in true style.
Friedrichs’ inimitable methods of video production have become synonymous with the aftermovie genre over the past few years, and he outdoes himself once again with this beautiful offering – as he perfectly captures the spine-tingling atmosphere that was present across the entirety of Croatia’s Destination ULTRA week.

Ultra Europe 2016
Destination ULTRA – Croatia Music Week kicks off on July 14, 2016, with the official Opening Party at the Giraffe Palm Beach House in Split where, in July 2015, ULTRA Europe and techno label Cocoon teamed up to bring Sven Väth and a whole host of his label mates to jumpstart proceedings.
The experience will then move on to ULTRA Europe, the three-day festival at the Poljud Stadium, Split from July 15-17, where over 150,000 revelers are expected to witness electronic music’s most in-demand acts inside one of Croatia’s most majestic venues.
Previous headline artists have included the likes of Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, Axwell^Ingrosso, Carl Cox, David Guetta, Hardwell, Knife Party, Martin Garrix, Tiësto and Zedd and with the announcement of The Chemical Brothers only last year, there are guaranteed to be a few more surprises in store for 2016.
Last year also saw the debut of the RESISTANCE concept at Ultra Europe, where the likes of Apollonia, Guy Gerber, Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, Nic Fanciulli, Sasha, Solomun and many more, offered festivalgoers an alternative on Arcadia Spectacular’s inimitable ‘Afterburner’ stage.
Following on from four mammoth days of partying in Split, and in exclusive partnership with Yacht Week, the Destination ULTRA – Croatia Music Week festivities move onto a one-off Yacht Regatta on July 18, which will see Zlatni Rat Beach on the Island of Brač host one of the most unique parties of the week.
July 19 will then take us to the Island of Hvar for the fourth edition of ULTRA Beach, which will welcome over 5,000 people to the Hotel Amfora Hvar Grand Beach Resort. Headliners in the past have included megastars such as Dillon Francis, Diplo, Fedde Le Grand and Oliver Heldens, and with all three previous editions selling out, ULTRA Beach is yet again expected to be one of the highlights of the week. Finally, on July 20, Destination ULTRA – Croatia Music Week will close the curtain on what is set to be an incredible seven days of partying, with its RESISTANCE Closing Party.
