Set in West Kowloon Nursery Park, Road to Ultra Hong Kong is a multi-sensory music extravaganza with a vibrant, energetic atmosphere, an unparalleled mind-melding blend of audio and visual stage production and a line-up saturated with heavy-hitters in the electronic dance music scene, which will bring together music lovers from abroad and locals alike.
Only adults (18+) revelers can attend as long as they can afford the tickets which are from HK$900. Created and founded by the team behind the electronic dance music festival, Ultra Music Festival, Road to Ultra (RTU) events are one day, single-stage events. The Ultra Worldwide team are also in charge of designing the stage, which are adapted to accommodate the needs of indoor and outdoor venues.
RTU was first launched back in 2012 in Seoul, Korea, leading up to the second edition of Ultra Korea that took place the year after. Ever since, Road to Ultra events have landed in Thailand, Colombia, Macau, Japan, Taiwan, Paraguay, Puerto Rico, Bolivia, the Philippines, Singapore and Chile. Hong Kong was the latest addition to Road to Ultra as of 2016.
The Road to Ultra: Macau, now known as Road to Ultra: Hong Kong, was held in 2015 at the Club Cubic and City of Dreams Complex in Macau, China. Some of the artists that headlined the event included Nicky Romero, Porter Robinson, 2ManyDJs, DVBBS, Tom Swoon, Justin Oh, and more local artists. The events debut was a commercial success, the tickets were sold out and was moved to Hong Kong for 2016.
The Road to Ultra: Hong Kong tok place on 17 September 2016 at the Nursery Park located in the West Kowloon Cultural District. The lineup for the event included artists like Knife Party, Martin Garrix, Nero (live), Carnage, Galantis, Jauz, Marshmello and Thomas Jack.
The inaugural Road to ULTRA Hong Kong was a staggering success and packed the biggest lineup for a Road to Ultra event in recent memory.
Ultra Worldwide is the global edition of the world's premier electronic music event, Ultra Music Festival.
The world's largest, independent and most international festival brand – ULTRA Worldwide – continues to dominate the electronic music landscape in Asia, completing four events across two weekends on the continent. ULTRA Korea, Road To ULTRA Hong Kong, ULTRA Singapore and ULTRA Beijing together show that the ULTRA brand is the industry leader on the Asian continent.

Loco Dice, Nastia and Coyu were among the band of RESISTANCE artists who delivered top tier house and techno across the weekend.

With the second leg of the tour hitting the Asian continent in September, all eyes are on the sophomore edition of ULTRA China in Shanghai, ULTRA Japan's fifth return to Tokyo and Road To ULTRA Taiwan in Taipei.
