Ultra South Africa adds Dash Berlin, KSHMR, DJ Snake to lineup

Forming part of Ultra South Africa's phase two lineup, Dash Berlin, KSHMR and DJ Snake will perform at the Cape Town Stadium on 24 February and at the Nasrec Expo Centre in Johannesburg on 25 February 2017. This follows the recent announcement that David Guetta and Martin Garrix will headline the event.
Dash Berlin is no stranger to Ultra South Africa; this Dutch trance veteran has been contributing to the international scene for over a decade. He’s worked with icons such as Justin Timberlake, Usher, N.E.R.D. and Lenny Kravitz to name just a few.

KSHMR (pronounced Kashmir), real name Niles Hollowell-Dhar, was awarded "The Highest New Entry" on DJ Mag's Top 100 DJ list, and has since moved up 11 places this year to the No.12 spot. The talented producer's live acts are highly recommended.

DJ Snake is the French DJ and record producer stunning the dance music world with his ability to create smash hit after smash hit. He most recently launched his first studio album ‘Encore’ featuring collaborations with icons Justin Bieber, Skrillex and more. DJ SNAKE was also behind one of the biggest and most iconic soundtracks of this generation, his collaboration with Major Lazer - “Lean On”. Expect to hear a range of unreleased future hits from Snake's performance at ULTRA South Africa.

Phase two support lineup

The support lineup is packed full of international superstars including Headhunterz, real name William Rebergen, the Dutch DJ who is known for his hard hitting, energetic sets and who has worked with previous Ultra South Africa artists like W&W and Krewella. Headhunterz will be shaking up the sound with his banging big room set in Cape Town and JHB.

Next up, Felix Jahen, the prodigal German tropical house DJ and producer that went number one in 20 countries with his remix of OMI's 'Cheerleader', will bring a summer sound to South Africa.

The Resistance stage will return to Ultra South Africa. Nic Fanciulli needs little introduction after completing a truly successful Resistance world tour in 2016 with Ultra Worldwide. Anyone who watched him on the Resistance stages around the world or was at the Space Ibiza closing party will know exactly how good this British DJ and producer is at getting a dance floor going, and keeping it going long into the night.

Joining Nic on this year’s Resistance programme is Black Coffee. Undoubtedly South Africa’s proudest current export, he started his career around 1995 and since then has played at P Diddy’s house party in Miami, taken home gold at the DJ Awards in Ibiza, remixed Avicii’s ‘Lay Me Down’ and more. Expect him to bring his magical A-Game to the stage; something that Ultranauts will remember long after the festival is over.
