2013 is not only Ultra Music Festival’s 15th anniversary, it’s also the first time this electronic dance music festival is expanding to two weekends. Aside from this change, Ultra introduced a new concept for 2013: a pre-festival club tour. Called ‘Road to Ultra: A Long Way from Home,’ the tour has Fedde Le Grand headlining and includes Sultan & Ned Shepard, with the two acts stopping at multiple house music spots in the U.S. two weeks before the festival begins.
Road to Ultra begins on March 1 in Atlantic City and then goes north the next day to New York, where the performers do a night at Pacha NYC. Presented by Pacha NYC and RPM, show starts at 10 p.m. Tickets are $10 before 12 a.m. Road to Ultra ends with the festival’s start on March 15.
On tour, Le Grand plans to introduce new music, including the aptly-titled Sultan & Ned Shepard collaboration “Long Way From Home,” which can be heard in the tour’s trailer below:
