Ultra 2017 is finally coming back for the third time to our sunny Singapore shores this June! This is a massive EDM music festival that debuted in Singapore in 2015 and has since spread to over twenty countries. With tickets selling like hot cakes and everyone getting all hyped up about this 2-day event, let’s take at look at some of the globe’s greatest electronic artists who will be performing right here in Singapore.
DJ Tiësto is a Dutch DJ and record producer whose legendary six hour sets has earned him the title of “the Greatest DJ of All Time” by Mixmag magazine. He is so famous that in fact, he has his own wax figure in Madame Tussauds located right at Amsterdam. As if that isn’t enough, he has also been knighted by the Queen of Holland. Perhaps we should call him “Sir Tiësto” instead! 😉

The interesting fact is that, although Anna has much fewer followers of 34,000+ compared to the other four mega DJs (who are at millions), she is the one with the highest interaction/engagement rate.This means that her followers actually interacts with her a lot more! She is also the one with the lowest number of inactive/fake accounts at 14.25%. Yay for girl power!
