Music festivals are back with a bang in South Africa.

Yet another festival has announced its return – this time it’s South Africa’s largest electronic music festival that returns in 2023 after a two-year hiatus.

The festival dates are set for Friday, March 10 at the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town and Saturday, March 11 at the Nasrec Expo Centre.

The Ultra Music Festival in South Africa was cancelled in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In 2020, some of the biggest names were brought to SA, including Afrojack, Dash Berlin, DJ Snake, Jamie Jones and Steve Aoki.

Shaun Duwe, co-founder and director of Ultra South Africa told City Press: 

We always announce our dates, venues and tickets first, with the line-up as a subsequent big announcement. 2023 will be no different so keep an eye out for our next big news drop.

Ultra has two stops in SA, one in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

In 2023, the festival dates are set for Friday, March 10 at the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town and Saturday, March 11 at the Nasrec Expo Centre.

The eighth edition of the festival brings a few exciting changes, says Duwe.

"Our new venue in Cape Town is going to be amazing. The energy also after three years away from the fans is amazing -  the response to this announcement is proof of that -  and we can’t wait to put on the best show we can. All Ultras around the world post-Covid have been the biggest to date and we expect the same and even more in South Africa."

Ticket sales open on September 23.

At this stage, there has been no announcement of what artists will be added to the lineup.
