In September 2014, Tokyo played host to the first outing of Ultra Japan. As the biggest EDM festival to ever be held in the country, 42,000 fans came out to support acts like Kaskade, Hardwell, Fedde Le Grand, Martin Garrix, Afrojack and more. Considered a massive success on all counts, the official aftermovie has now been released so that those of us on this side of the world can see what we missed out on.
Clocking in at 7 minutes, the video boasts a great look at both the city and the festival while featuring interviews with several of the artists who played. As far as aftermovies go, it’s pretty standard stuff. What does stand out, however, is the first song that’s used.
Premiered last year at Ultra Miami, Fedde Le Grand’s “Cinematic” still hasn’t found itself with an official release date yet. Seeing as it’s being used in this video though, it could indicate that the track is almost ready to drop. It certainly sounds finished, and if Ultra is using it to promote the festival, it’s likely going to be released very soon.
Take a look at the official Ultra Japan aftermovie above and let us know if you were lucky enough to be in attendance last year.
