Ultra Music Festival Cape Town 2017

Vello Virkhaus and Grant Davis both traveled for over 30 hours each way to perform live visual art at Ultra South Africa Cape Town and Johannesburg on the main stages.

Vello dropped back to back VJ sets for Kryoman, Felix Jahan, Headhunterz and Fresh with Euphonik in Cape Town. Grant Davis rocked Johannesburg with a similar lineup. Utilizing VSL’s custom VJ software Epik mk4 in conjunction with Resolume helped keep things evolving quickly throughout the 5 hour straight performance. True festival VJ styles with rotating back to back talent and fast paced EDM Dj sets really keept us on our toes. Big thanks to the South Africa production team members Richard Baker and Eyal Yehezkely. Thanks for the LED tech and getting my OSMO actually working and taking a few videos of the Headhunterz…stills featured below.

The production and venue were dramatically upgraded this year featured VJ talent from around the world.

Ultra Music Festival Japan

Ultra’s resident visual artist Vello Virkhaus traveled to Tokyo Japan to perform using vsquaredlabs custom EPIC touch designer software. Complex LED pixel mapping was setup by Julie Hardin with lots of additional presets to choose from in the system. Ultra Japan was an amazing experience with by far the best production team I have ever worked with anywhere in the world. This event was a part of the largest group of events Ultra Worldwide has executed to date, making the festival one of the largest international festival brands in the world.
