The Chainsmokers to perform at the 2019 ULTRA South Africa festival

The sixth edition of the popular music festival will feature a full live show performance from award-winning American duo, The Chainsmokers.

Organisers of ULTRA South Africa have announced that award-winning American electronic duo, The Chainsmokers, will be performing at the upcoming edition of the much-loved music festival. The duo will be performing their full live show on the ULTRA main stages in Johannesburg and in Cape Town.  The sixth edition of the outdoor music experience will take place on Friday, 1 March 2019 and on Saturday, 2 March 2019.

Boasting numerous accolades and awards, The Chainsmokers are also the only electronic/dance artists with more than a billion plays on Spotify per song for their hit singles, ‘Closer’ and ‘Don’t Let Me Down,’ which feature Halsey and Daya respectively.

The Chainsmokers recently released their new single, ‘Siren,’ on Friday, 26 October 2018, adding to their already admirable list of chart-topping songs. In an interview published by Dancing Astronaut on Tuesday, 18 September 2018, the duo opened up about their future plans, and the ever-changing music landscape.

“I think what we’re doing right now, and where our music goes, is going to be the most challenging part of our career,” the duo said. “The world is changing so fast, and trying to find your identity and write something that connects with people, and that you’re proud of, is the most challenging thing right now.”

Tickets for the music festival are still available for purchase on the official ULTRA South Africa website.
