Let’s check the report of the 2nd day of ULTRA JAPAN 2019 held at Odaiba, Tokyo, on 14th and 15th, September.
▽ The report for the 1st day is available here!
Over 30,000 people enjoyed the 1st and 2nd day!
ULTRA JAPAN 2019 had a new layout of the venue and more contents; we saw various greatest artists from overseas and over 30,000 visited each day.
The 14th saw the performances of Pendulum TRINITY, Steve Aoki and DJ Snake, all of whom wowed the whole audience.
The 15th also saw the audience were highly excited throughout the hottest day; even in early time, many visitors came up. One of the hottest moments there was the appearance of DJ TORA on the ULTRA MAIN STAGE, whose set surely attracted the audience with his anthems, followed by KSUKE, who is never new to ULTRA JAPAN and knows how to make the greatest grove as a Japanese artist.
By the way, ULTRA PARK STAGE had only Japanese artists; by the collaboration with Onitsuka Tiger, while art and performance co-existed, many young stars performed well among veterans like DJ BABY-T and MITOMI TOKOTO. On the ULTRA MAIN STAGE, while Galantis and Afrojack performed, SA!D’s last performance was really impressive.
With new contents, more comfortable space
The ULTRA JAPAN 2019 had the ULTRA LOUNGE and chill-out area, which were much more comfortable than the last year; especially, ULTRA LOUNGE commanded ULTRA MAIN STAGE. Not a few people must have thought they would be such a VIP. Yes, it was actually great.
The exterior of ULTRA PARK STAGE was really delicate, and you found many places photogenic. You also found ladies areas, booths for making up, candy decoration, charging stations for your phone. This is the philosophy of ULTRA JAPAN: Audience First.
Of course, what everyone expected was the greatest moment with other visitors together. On the ULTRA MAIN STAGE, Infected Mushroom performed first as an artist from overseas; the psychedelic performance ant beat mesmerized the audience, following the beat of Netsky and Pendulum TRINITY on the first day.
Almost overwhelming performance by Galantis and Afrojack
Then, KAYZO, who is wowing the whole world, performed his festival-like pieces of much hospitality to impress the audience, followed by The Return of Dash Berlin for the first time in Japan after the revival. The mood was really groovy and showed of not only his pieces but also super hits of others like Alan Walker, Armin van Buuren, Zedd and Avicii.
And at the last moment of ULTRA JAPAN 2019, Galantis, also famous in Japan, performed his favorite percussion instrument to wow the audience altogether. One of the most impressive one among famous pieces like Ove On Me and Spaceship was No Money and Runaway (U&I). We are never new to these masterpieces, which are still impressive and never dull. Sebastian Ingrosso & Tommy Tash’s Reload and Showtek’s Booyah were also perfect for the atmosphere.
The last performer of ULTRA JAPAN 2019 was Afrojack, whose performance is always intriguing and never gets us sick for his original mash-ups and super-quick transitions. It’s no wonder why he wows the world with his masterpieces. And we can’t forget the last 15 minutes, of course.
Beginning with Travis Scott “Sicko Mode” from Zomboy and “Dirty Sexy Money” with David Guetta, the J SOUL BROTHERS (3rd generation) hit hard the audience with “Summer Madness”, followed by Daft Punk’s “One More Time” and “Ten Feet Tall”, which was sung by the whole audience.
And the last piece was “Wake Me Up” of Avicii to close the event. The fever didn’t change as the venue did, and what ULTRA JAPAN we know was as it was.
