The Ultimate Guide For Attending Road To Ultra: India

Posted at September 5th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in Dance Music, Entertainment, Events, Featured, GVO Blog, India Tour, Trap, World Festivals

Excitement is mounting as Road To Ultra‘s first editions in India are nearing. With barely a couple of days to go, we hope you’ve purchased your tickets and taken leave from office/university, because this is going to be an ALL day event that you don’t want to miss a moment of! RTU is hitting up Mumbai on 7th September, Thursday, and New Delhi on 8th September, Friday, so you better have blocked your concerned date. While for some of you, this may not be the first music festival you’ve attended, but we’re here to give you a comprehensive guide on how to absolutely rock this Road To Ultra!



Entry & Lineup: Since they are one day events with identical lineups and only one stage, you won’t have any issue of running around trying to catch your favourite acts. The first artist Siana Catherine starts at 12:30PM, so it’s advised that you head there on time to avoid being stuck outside in long queues. Around 20,000 people are expected for each event, so be prepared to battle the crowds! You’ll need to be 18+ to enter, with a valid ID card for proof, and your e-ticket as well. Diamond ticket holders will have an express entry lane, admission to a private lounge, a bar, and other amenities.



What To Wear: Since it’s an actual music festival, we’d definitely recommend breaking out the funky clothes and face glitter. However it’s important to remember that comfort is key. You’ll be on your feet the majority of the time so wearing super comfortable, close-toed shoes is a must, especially if you have any hopes for making it to the front of the stages. Don’t wear anything too tight, restrictive, or fussy; there are plenty of ways to stand out while still being comfortable. You can check out some of the fashion we’ve spotted at festivals before, including artists as well. Although weather forecasts show clear skies in both cities on the day of the event, it’s advisable to check again before leaving for the event, and carrying a light, disposable rain poncho (especially for our friends in Mumbai). Also, since it’s an all day event, don’t forget to lather on the sunscreen!



What To Carry: Ideally a small fanny pack/ sling bag should do the trick. You can’t carry any food or drinks, and you won’t need much else. Here’s what we suggest you would need.

  • Power Bank for your phone. (Plus a fully charged phone)
  • Sealed pack of chewing gum or mints. (Opened packs not allowed)
  • Cash and/or Cards. (Both will be accepted everywhere)
  • ID card.
  • Sealed pack of cigarettes if you smoke. They will be available for sale inside at the smoking zones as well. (Opened packs not allowed)
  • Sunglasses and/or a cap.
  • Hand sanitiser.

Only your ID cards and cash is essential. There are a lot of things aren’t allowed including anything dangerous, professional recording equipment, anything edible, big bags, umbrellas, animals, drugs, you know the drill.



Things To Remember: If you’re wearing comfy clothes and carrying the required things, then you’re all set for an Ultra day and there’s just a few basic things you need to keep in mind.

  • Hydrate and eat well, and keep your energy up.
  • Don’t get obsessed with recording or clicking every moment.
  • Take breaks in between sets, give your feet the rest.
  • The folks in orange shirts that read “Mission Control” are there to help you; whether than means pointing you toward bathrooms, security, or first aid.
  • You won’t be able to re-enter the event once you leave.
  • Music is the only drug you need.
