Watch: Relive Ultra South Africa With Stunning Aftermovie

Ultra has released Colours And Waves, the aftermovie for the inaugural Ultra South Africa, which took place in Johannesburg and Cape Town over two consecutive days back in February.

Unlike many aftermovies, this isn’t just a bunch of random festival footage–there’s something quite special about this piece, created by Dutch filmmaker Final Kid.

From the opening surfing analogy–“waves shape our lives, whether we riding on them or dancing to them”–to the festival-goers welcoming the Ultra brand to their continent, this visually stunning film sets a new benchmark for festival aftermovies. Of course, there’s plenty of footage of the main event, including some words of wisdom from Krewella, Tiesto and Nicky Romero, but it’s subtle and emotive, and it really drives home just how much music festivals can mean to people.

Ultra South Africa is due to return in 2015, with tickets on sale soon. In the meantime, check out the video below:
