DJs Alesso, Hardwell, and Tiesto will headline the 2016 Road To Ultra: Philippines happening this September 17 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

UPDATE: Instead of the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, this concert will now be held at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Ultra Music Festival, one of the world's biggest dance music fests, will be returning to the Philippines.

Road To Ultra: Philippines is scheduled to take place this September 17 in Pasay City.

Organized by Ovation Productions and Blackwater Events, the sophomore edition of the Miami-based music fest will be headlined by three of the most sought-after DJs in the world: Alesso, Hardwell, and Tiesto.

This marks the return of Swedish musician and DJ Alessandro Lindblad, more popularly known as Alesso, after his last visit back in 2014.

The 25-year-old musician is currently ranked 13th in DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs in the world. Some of his popular tracks include "Calling (Lose My Mind)," "Years," "If I Lose Myself," "City of Dreams," "Under Control," and "Heroes (We Could Be)."

Hardwell also returns to the Philippine concert scene after the successful Manila leg of his Go Hardwell or Go Home concert in 2014. The Dutch electro-house DJ was supposed to visit Manila way back in 2015 for another solo show titled I Am Hardwell. However, the concert was cancelled after a misunderstanding with a local cocnert producer. The 28-year-old Dutch DJ is known for club favorites including "The Dance Floor Is Yours," "Dare You," "Arcadia," "Call Me a Spaceman," and "Young Again."
