Results are in from the Tax office after last month’s electronic music festival spectacular – Ultra Europe – which was held at Split’s Poljud stadium from 10 – 12 July – and the festival has helped spending in Split reach 65 million euros during the festival…
Organisers have confirmed at a press conference that there were 15% more festival goers compared to Ultra Europe 2014 with 150,000 people from 43 countries attending this year.
Every day more than 30,000 tickets were sold, which is 15% more than last year. Tickets were also 20% more expensive this year. During the three days of the festival more than 40,000 people passed through Split airport. Thanks largely to Ultra, the number of tourist arrivals and overnight stays increased by 21% compared to 2014.
“Ultra Europe successfully ended its 3rd edition. We have world-class results. 150,000 people from 43 countries with spending in Split totalling 500 million kuna (65 million euros). I think we done a good job. Thank God there was not one incident, and that sends a positive message to the world, that Split can be recognised as a destination where one can have a good time, not just for a few days but for a whole week,” organiser Joe Bašić said.
