So Ultra Europe begins tomorrow in Split, Croatia. Please read this before you go!
Do: Remember to buy your tickets and accommodations way in advanced to ensure the best prices, and availability!
Don’t: Show up on any empty stomach. The food here is not good, the lines are ridiculously long, and the people are slow. Seriously take my advice on this one or you will be nauseous before you get to the good acts. Especially with the amount that you will be drinking, you don’t want to be that person that is sick and passed out by 10PM especially since you have to keep the party going until 5am.
Do: Pregame before you get there! Since this goes all night you will need to keep that buzz going. The drinks once you’re inside range from 9-15 euros so be smart about it, I would show up with a good buzz, and maybe a few shooters shoved down your pants for later!
Don’t: Even though Ultra starts at 6PM, I would NOT show up until at least 10-11 unless there is someone that you absolutely need to see. You will be knocked out by the time the best people/closing acts come on. The venue doesn’t get full until around 10, which is when the first great DJ’s usually start.
Do: Walk around the venue, it is tempting to stay at main stage because of its lack of accessibility to the other but I strongly recommend at least checking them out. It is a lot of fun to walk around, plus you get to see the crazy ravers (most likely the ones tripping the hardest) party with more bass in your face than you can handle!
Don’t: Spend the extra for VIP, the viewing areas are all the way at the top of the stadium not providing much access to better viewing areas (example: Ultra Miami has viewing areas right next to the stage, this has the advantage of closeness without the crowds.) You are paying a lot more for seats that are not better, and they charge more for drinks… who does that? My suggestion, take the regular GA and you can always sit in the seats around, it is in a stadium after all!
Do: Party the night away, dance your ass off until 5am, and watch the beautiful sunrise as you make your way home! These are the BTK tips to ensure you have the best time there!
BTK Insider Tip: The bars are all cashless there, on the first day they let you use cash but passed that you will have trouble finding bars that will take anything but your wristband!
