Following its record-breaking inaugural edition in 2013, Ultra Europe returned to the Poljud Stadium in Split, Croatia on July 11th – 13th 2014 to deliver an even bigger and more amazing experience for the hoard of fans that once again descended on the shores of the Dalmatian Coast. For three consecutive days, over 150,000 audience members from 125 countries (a new Ultra Worldwide record) enjoyed a selection of the world’s greatest DJs, producers and live acts. Having expanded from two to three days for 2014, almost 50,000 more than last year’s capacity of 103,000 came to see and hear all of the performers, smashing its own 2013 record that made Ultra Europe the largest music event ever in Croatia.
In addition, the exclusive Ultra Beach pool party also took place for the second time at the Hotel Amfora Grand Beach Resort, building on its reputation as one of the most unique and fun-fuelled parties to be found worldwide.
Across the three days in Split, Ultra Europe’s brand new Main Stage hosted some of dance music’s most notable artists including Above & Beyond, Afrojack, Alesso, Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Example, Fedde Le Grand, Hardwell, Ingrosso, Knife Party, Laidback Luke, Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero, Showtek, Steve Aoki, Tiësto, W&W and many more.
For the millions who couldn’t make it to Croatia for Ultra Europe, the team at UMF TV were on hand to share the experience with the online global community. Ultra Live broadcast a selection of sets from the main stage and Ultra Worldwide Arena, with over 1.6 million viewers tuning in.
Once the fireworks had signaled the end of Ultra Europe, it was time for Ultra Beach 2014. The event on Tuesday July 15th had completely sold out before the final lineup was even announced. Justin Oh kicked off proceedings at the Hotel Amfora Resort pool area. Dillon Francis, Diplo ,Goldfish, and Afrojack also took the Ultra Beach Stage.
