Venue: The festival story dates back to 1999. Founded by Russell Faibisch and Alex Omes, it gets its name from their favorite Depeche Mode album “Ultra”. There was not a single year when the festival didn’t take place. Because of local’s objections, who demanded its transfer, the organizers changed locations but never thought to close it. And now this is completely impossible – the fest stepped over the borders and was held in Brazil. The next decade, it swept through Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, Australia. Now, this is the world’s EDM religion!
