The first weekend of the most awaited electronic festival of Argentina 2017 exceeded the audience expectations. The immense stage and the mega-production distinguished the event.
Resistance, the new proposal of Ultra land for the first time this 2017. Ultra was usually a colossal event of two consecutive days with four stages, more than 20 artists and closed at 5 AM. This year because of government restrictions they made a two nonconsecutive day festival, with only one stage, four artists per date and closed at 2 am. Although Ultra had to shrink for external reasons, they developed a great festival with excellent DJ´s and the professionalism that characterized them.
Resistance organization was really on point, it was easy to access to “Mandarine Park”, the field was spacious, the bars and bathrooms well distributed. Being at the VIP was a quality leap. This raised floor was located at one side of the field and counted with comfortable couches and a fancy decoration that created a pleasant atmosphere.
The huge and high-tech stage was what stand out Resistance form others electronic parties. The quality and intensity of the sound was another highlight. Screens cover the whole stage and hypnotized you with their colours that move to the rhythm of the beats.
This British producer of underground house and techno offered us a danceable and exciting set. His music stimulated us to move incessantly. He played a wide variety of songs and different rhythms that made the show very dynamic.
John Digweed and Sasha B2B
This famous duo closed the event with four hours of back to back. Both DJ´s had already spent more than 25 years producing top-level techno and progressive house together. It was amazing to hear their finest productions alive. The set was full of energy, the smoothness and obscured sounds trapped us and led us to recondite places of our minds. It was impressive how they immerse us into their enchanting music and free us into their mysterious world. They had the capacity to understand the crowd needs and know how to give exactly what they want.
