July 14, 2019 – The second day of Ultra Europe was enjoyed by Croatian politicians and tourism representatives, and no major incidents were reported! 

Justin Oh, Kryoman, Lost Kings, DJ Snake, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, No Redemption, Afrojack and Alesso all graced the main festival stage at Ultra Europe on Saturday night, which was breathtaking in its presence, production and special effects. The rivers of festival goers flowed for hours, with the first queues already lined up at 7 pm when the organizers opened the main entrance. 


The largest international event in Croatia has seen great support from the local tourist boards, the tourism sector and the Government of Croatia. Thus, the mayor of Split, Andro Krstulović Opara, and Joe Bašić, on behalf of the Ultra organization, was proud to welcome guests from Zagreb to show them precisely what Ultra is all about. Namely, Zagreb mayor Milan Bandić, director of the Croatian Tourist Board, Kristjan Staničić, director of the Zagreb Tourist Board, Martina Bienenfeld, State Secretary Tonči Glavina, and Alijana Vukušić, Split Tourist Board director experienced first hand why the festival is king. Recall, Ultra will also mark a million visitors to date in Split. 



Even better news is that the second day of the festival saw the fewest medical interventions ever. Namely, at the end of the night, four festival goers were taken to the hospital. 

Furthermore, before, during, and after the second day, no significant negative security events were reported, relating to disturbing public order and peace to a greater extent, injuring festival goers or damaging property. Eight property crimes were reported, mostly theft, according to the Split-Dalmatia County Police Department.

“A total of 112 persons, Croatian and foreign nationals, were arrested, mainly because of the violation of the Drug Abuse Act. The criminal investigation of three people is ongoing with the criminal offense of unauthorized production and trafficking of drugs,” said Antonela Lolić, the spokesperson of the Split-Dalmatia County Police Department. 

Tonight, Axwell, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and the highly anticipated performance of Swedish House Mafia will help close out another prosperous Ultra Europe.
