ULTRA.NY is the ultimate New York City electronic music experience, taking place on September 16th at Central Park's Rumsey Playfield. The event is presented by Ultra Music Festival in association with Ultra Records Inc. Beginning at 4:30pm, dance music lovers of all ages will be witness to over 5 hours of top international electronic artists, performing in 3 arenas.
This event is to be the first of many, according to Ultra Records CEO Patrick Moxey and Ultra Music Festival owners Alex Omes and Russell Faibisch. A dance event of this magnitude has never graced Central Park before. While dance music fans flock to Miami every March for the annual Ultra Music Festival, the northeastern fans now get the chance to party on their own turf. "It is very exciting to have the opportunity to bring ULTRA to the people of New York. Central Park is a world famous venue that we are honored to be working with. UMF has joined forces with the Ultra Records team to make this project a reality and we are committed to producing the highest quality outdoor dance event that NY has ever seen," says Russell Faibisch.
The two "Ultra" camps have teamed up for all ULTRA electronic music events to be held outside of Florida. Each brings its own uniqueness and worth to the table. Ultra Music Festival sold out its 7th annual event this past March with a record-breaking 40,000+ in attendance, a staggering number for Bayfront Park in Miami. As well as being the first event of its kind to be broadcast in High Definition on Pay Per View. Ultra Records, the preeminent dance music label in the United States, boasts a roster consisting of Armin Van Buuren, The Crystal Method, Armand Van Helen, Timo Maas, David Morales, as well as successful compilation series including Ultra.Dance, Ultra.Trance, Ultra.Chilled, and Ultra.Weekend.
