Conceived at ULTRA Buenos Aires in February 2015, the RESISTANCE™ concept was then rolled out at Ultra Music Festival Miami the very same year.

Housed in the awe-inspiring, state-of-the-art ‘Afterburner’ stage, powered by Arcadia Spectacular, RESISTANCE™ drew huge international attention and has since had custom productions on five continents.

2016 saw RESISTANCE™ team up with Arcadia in Miami once again, this time for the highly anticipated North American debut of the legendary ‘SPIDER’ structure. In only its second year, RESISTANCE™ continued to expand at breakneck speed, touching down in ten countries spanning five continents, with events in the USA (Miami), Croatia, South Africa (Cape Town & Johannesburg), Singapore, Indonesia (Bali), Japan (Tokyo), Brazil (Rio De Janeiro) and three standalone events in Paraguay (Asunción), Peru (Lima) and Chile (Santiago).   

The 2017 edition of Ultra Music Festival saw RESISTANCE™ dominate not one, but two huge stages at Bayfront Park, expanding into a unique festival within the festival. In addition to welcoming back the SPIDER across all three days of the event, RESISTANCE™ also announced Carl Cox as its global ambassador.

2017 has also seen RESISTANCE™ undertake an eight-week Ibiza residency at the world’s largest nightclub, Privilege. The brand’s residency runs every Tuesday from July 25th until the closing party on September 12th, helmed by exclusive Ibiza residents Sasha & John Digweed. If that weren’t enough, Shanghai, Seoul, Bali, Medellin, Cordoba, UK and Mexico City have also been added to the rapidly expanding RESISTANCE™ global calendar, with RESISTANCE™  set to close out the year with 14 events across four continents.
