Daniela Rogulj


The wait is over – the 7th edition of Ultra Europe officially begins on Friday at Park Mladeži in Split. The organizers announced on Thursday that everything is ready for the most important international event in Croatia, and this year, there are even new records! 

Namely, Ultra Europe boasts the biggest stage and production ever seen in the region, the largest number of visitors, the biggest music stars of today and an even more spectacular fireworks show, which the organizers promise will promote Split in the best light. 

Park Mladeži opens its doors every day at 7 pm, and on Monday, the musical journey continues to the islands of Brač, Hvar and Vis.


So, what do you need to know before coming to the festival? The main entrance for visitors is located along Ul. Hrvatske Mornarice, and the new location, due to its width and spaciousness, allows for a faster flow, which means it should be less crowded and offer a better experience with security measures that are at the highest possible level. Park Mladeži is said to be much larger than the previous location, and in its central area, which is the size of three football fields, an additional 20,000 people can be accommodated. This location will be the heart of the festival itself, linking all three stages and offering entertainment by many festival partners and a variety of food and drink. A better experience will also be had by the VIP guests who can expect a special entrance and entry to the lodges located on three floors.


The organizers are especially proud of the main stage, which is 16 meters tall and 80 meters wide, with over 150 square feet of LED display, to make it the greatest stage ever set in the region. And we must not forget that one of the trademarks of the festival is undoubtedly the 360 fireworks that will be even more vibrant this year!

On Friday, festival goers can enjoy the main stage acts Lucky Z, Plastik Funk, David Guetta, Gud Vibrations, Nicky Romero, The Chainsmokers and Armin van Buuren. On Saturday, the lineup reveals Justin Oh, Kryoman, Lost King, DJ Snake, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, No Redemption, Afrojack and Alesso, while Moe, Vanillaz, Cheat Codes, Rezz, Above & Beyond, Jeffrey Sotorius and megastars Swedish House Mafia will be in charge of closing the seventh edition of the festival on Sunday, July 14, 2019.

Most festival goers are eagerly awaiting the performance of DJ-trio Swedish House Mafia, which includes Split on the map of concerts as part of their comeback tour. The gigantic main stage will be completely redone for their performance, and the announced production and special effects will be a special surprise for all visitors. It will be a show the entire world will talk about and a music treat that should not be missed.

No less exciting is the ever spectacular RESISTANCE stage whose industrial designs look like Brodosplit cranes, linking the past and the future for the largest and most modern production underground stage in the world. On Friday, the stage will welcome Rory Lynam, Steve Fidelak, Patrice Baumel, Sasha b2b Nic Fanciulli, Maceo Plex, and Adam Beyer, DanceElecricPhilipe will open Saturday with I Elio Riso, Art Department, Jamie Jones, Richie Hawtin, and Marco Carola, while Sunday is booked for Sk!
