Ultra México has dropped the first phase of artists playing the festival this October including Armin van Buuren, Illenium, Steve Angello, and more!

If you’ve been paying attention to the layout of festivals that have begun to dominate the landscape in North America, you’ll know that Mexico has turned into a hotbed of epic electronic music experiences. The Ultra Worldwide crew has taken note of this as well, and after a massively successful debut last year ULTRA México is set to return for another monumental edition!

Hosted on October 13-14 at Foro Pegaso in Mexico City, this year’s edition of ULTRA México will be bringing some heavy hitters to the nation’s capital. Armin Van BuurenGalantisIllenium, and Marshmello are leading the charge as some of the first headliners announced. With Steve Angello and Axwell /\ Ingrosso both on the lineup, is there a chance that we might get more teases of an upcoming Swedish House Mafia reunion in 2019 at the festival? Only time will tell.

Adding to the stacked lineup, Ultra’s RESISTANCE will be making a comeback to the festival as well. The second time the underground brand will be touching down in the country this year, the stage will welcome Carl CoxJamie Jones, Tale of Us, and more as headliners over the two days.

Rounding out the lineup in support is also a wide range of artists from the trance and house scene, as names like Ben Nicky and Ferry Corsten will be joined by Matador and Eats Everything for a wicked good time. Check out the full lineup below and let us know which artists you’re most excited to catch this year!
