ULTRA Brasil Announces Ticketing Information For 2016 Edition

Just a few weeks on from the announcement that ULTRA Brasil will take place this October 14-15, 2016, at the magnificent Flamengo Park in Rio de Janeiro, the festival now reveals the all-important information regarding tickets for this year’s event.
Pre-Sale (half-price) General Admission tickets, priced from just R$ 264.50*, will be in very limited supply on April 12 from 12pm EST, and will be available exclusively to fans that have registered at www.ultrabrasil.com before 12:01am on April 11. For all those who have registered, they will receive a purchase code via email upon the pre-sale going live.
 
Brazilian law stipulates certain members of society are granted half-priced tickets to events. Half-priced tickets are only available to Brazilian citizens who fall under one of the following categories: (i) under the age of 21; (ii) a teacher; (iii) a student; (iv) over the age of 59; (v) the disabled. Full priced General Admission tickets will cost R$ 529.00 and give attendees access across both days of the festival.

VIP tickets follow the same protocol, and will be available from R$ 799.50 at half-price and R$ 1599.00 at full cost. Those who purchase VIP tickets will have exclusive access to their very own VIP, catering and bathroom areas, access to the bar and most importantly, the best views of the ULTRA Main Stage.
Situated on one of the most beautiful and iconic stretches of coastline in the world, Flamengo Park, Rio de Janeiro, was handpicked by ULTRA Worldwide due to its stark similarity to Bayfront Park – the home of ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL, Miami. With its incredible oceanfront location, views of Sugarloaf mountain, ‘Christ The Redeemer’ and other unique landmarks, ULTRA Brasil will feature multiple state of the art stages, complete with the world-class production for which ULTRA has become so famed. ULTRA Brasil also recently dropped the huge news that Dutch prodigy, Martin Garrix and ULTRA legend Carl Cox will be performing exclusively at the festival in October 2016. This of course means that ULTRA Brasil will be the only festival you will catch the pair playing in Brasil in 2016.
With more names to be announced in the near future and a host of exciting new announcements still to make, fans are truly in for a treat come this October. Please register to avoid disappointment. For further details and ticket information, head to ultrabrasil.com

AboutULTRA WORLDWIDE™
ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ is the global edition of the World’s Premier Electronic Music event, ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL.
The ULTRA brand was founded in 1997 by Executive Producer, President & CEO Russell Faibisch, and began producing electronic music events in South Florida, which led to the inaugural Ultra Music Festival in 1999 on the sands of Miami Beach.
The internationally renowned festival, which has taken place every March since its inception, celebrated its eighteenth anniversary from March 18-20, 2016 by bringing over 165,000 music enthusiasts to the sold out waterfront event in the heart of the City of Miami. Ultra Music Festival returns to Bayfront Park for its nineteenth annual edition, 24-26 March 2017.
Choosing to follow a unique, creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused around a true love for music, artists and fans alike, the ULTRA and ULTRA Worldwide™ brands represent not only the world’s biggest and most successful remaining INDEPENDENT electronic music festival brand, they are now the most international of any festival brand in the world by far. The event organizers continue to transport the unrivalled experience from the Miami flagship festival to an ever-growing number of destinations and fans all over the globe.
Over the past eighteen years, literally thousands of the world’s most iconic DJs, producers and live acts have mesmerized audiences with awe-inspiring sets at ULTRA festivals in ARGENTINA, BALI, BRAZIL, CHILE, CROATIA, IBIZA, JAPAN, KOREA, SOUTH AFRICA and of course MIAMI, as well as ROAD TO ULTRA® events in BOLIVIA, CHILE, COLOMBIA, MACAU, PARAGUAY, PERU, THE PHILIPPINES, PUERTO RICO, SEOUL, SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND, TOKYO and the USA. Each and every new global edition is founded on the same successful recipe that has been perfected over eighteen years in Miami, combining the most diverse electronic talent with the most technologically advanced, large-scale festival productions in the world.
In addition, the ULTRA brands pioneered the live stream experience, ‘ULTRA LIVE’ (whereby the festival is brought online to over 20 million unique viewers globally) and the audio broadcasting platform ‘UMF RADIO’ (syndicated to FM Radio in over 77 countries and reaching more than 22 million listeners weekly). Also UMF FILMS’ collaboration with FINAL KID has seen some of the most visually breathtaking festival aftermovies in the music space, including a feature-length documentary exploring the explosion of dance music, entitled CAN U FEEL IT, which premiered at the Ultra Music Festival, Miami 2012 and was exhibited in over 500 theaters across the Unites States.
2016 will see the ULTRA and ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ brands continue to push the boundaries even further, bringing an unparalleled combination of cutting edge productions and the world’s best electronic acts back to previous strongholds and new frontiers across the globe. With a brand new edition of ULTRA Brasil confirmed to take place in Rio de Janeiro on 14-15 October 2016, ULTRA Singapore becoming a full scale two-day festival on 9-10 September and with ROAD TO ULTRA® entering Hong Kong later this year, the ULTRA brand has now united TWENTY COUNTRIES across FIVE CONTINENTS worldwide.

Luxury for Less in Barcelona

 

image1.tumblr_mpiqzzaJjO1r2doe0o1_1280

 

For most people, traveling in style across Europe is just a pipe dream, and because of that, many travelers never get to indulge in the extravagance of the high life. In Barcelona however, opulence isn’t limited to the wealthy, as travel writer Sònia Graupera explains to one of National Geographic’s correspondents: “[hotel prices in the city] are still very reasonable, compared to Paris, London, or Milan.”

In the past few years, international chains have expanded in Spain’s second largest city, which worries many budget travelers as boutique hotels have probably upped their costs now that Barcelona is drawing in a higher-earning clientele. But from Sònia’s experience from writing travel pieces about the city, she assures that the family-owned boutique hotels have maintained their affordable pricing.

One of these boutique hotels is the futuristic looking Room Mate Emma, which have decently priced rooms as well as suites with with private terraces. Not too far off from this hotel’s area is The5Rooms, with each of its rooms designed with a different feel. Perhaps the coziest room they have is one that is decked out with bare brick wall and romantic lighting.

For nightlife, travelers will probably check out the city’s bars and clubs, however hopping from place to place in the nightclub district could end disastrously with you spending more than you planned. An alternative to a fancy night out without blowing your savings is by heading over to Casino Barcelona, one of Europe’s finest gambling facilities designed by architect Frank Gehry.

The casino boasts one of the most stunning views of the Mediterraean, and invites all kinds of gamblers to take advantage of their extensive selection of games. These days, many choose to play their casino games online, as many portals are able to provide a bigger selection of games. Gala Casino, in fact, releases new games every week, giving a choice of nearly 400 games that are playable across a variety of devices. While they can’t hope to have the same diversity and variety of games, land-based casinos still uphold a certain kind of elegance and luxury that people still find appealing. Hence why Casino Barcelona is still one of the most revered gaming spots in the world.

After trying your luck at the regular cash games, head over to one of many establishments surrounding the casino and have a cocktail while listening to some live music. The selection of bars and restaurants saves you from having to pay for cab fares between bars and separate entrance fees.

With the diversity of accommodations and entertainment hubs offered, Barcelona makes it possible for you travel luxuriously without spending a fortune.

12 Best Smart Gadgets for Travelers

55785b54eb260e510b3aaede_details-travel-technology

Just because you’re on the road doesn’t mean you have to log off from your life.

  1. Take a vacation from smoking: Trying to kick the habit? Don’t leave home without Smokio, the vape pen that calculates how much money you’re saving compared with what you’d spend on cigarettes—cash that will come in handy on your next trip. (us.smokio.com, $80)
  2. Share your snaps anywhere: Zip is a mobile printer that syncs with your phone or tablet and spits out peel-and-stick Polaroids, so you can lift your selfie game to new levels. (polaroid.com, $130)
  3. A gym shirt that collects more than sweat: Flying to see clients needn’t be an excuse to slack off at the gym. Wear Athos as or underneath your exercise gear; snap in the Core device, and it’ll collect data (heart and breathing rates, etc.), letting you chart your progress on its app. (liveathos.com, $99 plus $199 for the Core)
  4. A game way to work out in your hotel: If you’re stiff after a flight, attach the Valedo’s sensors to your chest and lower back—they’ll direct an avatar on your iPad, Wii-style, as it wends its way through obstacle courses. You’ll stretch sore muscles without it feeling like exercise. (valedotherapy.com, $359)
  5. Protect your posture: Miss your standing desk? Pin Lumo Lift to your chest, and it’ll vibrate when you start slipping down your seat at the next all-day off-site. (lumobodytech.com, $80)
  6. Breathe easy on the road: Are you a three-for-the-road kind of guy? Breeze, a Bluetooth breathalyzer, lets you know when you’ll sober up—and in the meantime, it’ll help you find food nearby. (breathometer.com, $100)
  7. Keep a visual travel journal: Fasten the Narrative Clip 2 wherever, and it snaps pics automatically (for two days!) at a pace you preset. (getnarrative.com, $199)
  8. Yes, you can take your audiophile ways with you: Developed by Neil Young, Pono promises the highest-fidelity digital sound from one harvest moon to the next. (ponomusic.force.com, $399)
  9. Sleep soundly wherever you go: Noise-canceling headphones do only so much. SleepPhones slip over your eyes to block light and let you nod off to tunes on your side, which even earbuds don’t. (sleepphones.com, $40)
  10. Bring your own pedal: Connected Cycle, a clip-in replacement pedal (still in development), is for those who want to log routes, speeds, and calories burned—not just spin their wheels in a hotel gym. (connectedcycle.com)
  11. A homing beacon for your bags: Drop Trakdot into your checked luggage, and if the airline mistakenly sends it to Boston, not Austin, at least you’ll know where it is. (trakdot.com, $50)
  12. The little laptop charger that could: Traveling light? Dart is a quarter of the size of a typical power bar, guaranteeing that you’ll save space in your carry-on. (finsix.com, $89)

Plus: A Suitcase That Weights Itself: Bluesmart holds your stuff like other suitcases do—and can tell if you’re going to have to pay extra at bag check (it has an internal scale). It also locks from your phone, tells you where it is, and comes with a built-in battery to charge devices en route. Now if only it could fold a shirt. (bluesmart.com, $339)
