The Carl Cox Megastructure is known to Ultra Music Festival fans worldwide as hallowed ground. Serving as the legend’s home-base for his Carl Cox & Friends concept, the stage and structure has grown steadily and evolved over the past thirteen consecutive years to become one of the festival’s most revered and anticipated stages. Now, the Carl Cox Megastructure will see another bold evolution when RESISTANCE champions in a new era, teaming up with Carl for the brand’s megastructure debut.
“I’ve been a huge fan of RESISTANCE since it started and I think it deserves a stage that can showcase the brilliant production to its full potential. There is no question that RESISTANCE was built in the same vein as CC&F, to bring the most upfront talent, production value and experiences to the fans, and I know the best place for that is in the Megastructure. I know fans will agree and be absolutely blown away!” – Carl Cox
For those that may have missed the news, Carl Cox was announced as the concept’s global ambassador back in Feb of 2016. In this role, Carl will host many RESISTANCE stages across Ultra Worldwide’s global festivals, and work directly with Russell Faibisch, (Co-Founder, CEO, President, Chairman and Executive Producer of Ultra Music Festival and Ultra Worldwide) to curate both talent and production for the brand.

In its short life, RESISTANCE has already proven itself to be a beast of musical and theatrical proportions, drawing in fans with what can only be described as full-on sensory immersion and abduction. It captivates, stimulates and intoxicates both body and mind to deliver a new reality to anyone willing to receive. It’s sci-fi meets cirque du soleil with a soul forged entirely of earth, fire and techno. Forget what you think you know and just let go. This is what a festival experience is all about.
