Ultra Worldwide has announced today that Ultra Europe will indeed be happening in 2017, with a new promotion company to replace AMM.
After being hit with a lawsuit by AMM, which we reported on earlier this month, the future of Ultra Europe was questionable and the future of the event seemed uncertain. The social media channels had been silent for some time, and the anticipation grew as to what was actually happening to the festival hosted in Split, Croatia. Was the festival getting canceled? Would they find a way to settle the lawsuit in time? Well, we now have an answer to the questions many of you had asked.
Today, Ultra Europe responded to our request for more information with an official statement from the festival organizers. In the statement below, they announced that the festival will indeed continue and be held this year, that a lineup is coming soon, and that they intend to continue on with Ultra Europe for many years to come. What isn’t mentioned in the statement below is naming the actual new local partner, MPG Live. They will be taking the place of AMM this year and in future editions of Ultra Europe, assuring the continuance of the festival.
