ULTRA Worldwide’s esteemed underground concept, RESISTANCE, is rounding out 2022 by showcasing the most in-demand house and techno talents across Latin America.
After a stellar edition of RESISTANCE Guatemala which took place on October 1 and featured mesmeric sets from headliners Joris Voorn and Rodriguez JR., RESISTANCE has announced lineups for its December events in Buenos Aires, Medellin, and Lima.
RESISTANCE Buenos Aires has remained a staple in the RESISTANCE circuit since 2015, when the Argentinian capital hosted the first-ever RESISTANCE stage. In the years following, RESISTANCE has evolved into the globe-trotting underground event concept with installments on all six inhabited continents.
This year’s Buenos Aires event will span two days and feature a highly-coveted RESISTANCE x Drumcode collaboration. Recruiting some of Drumcode’s favorite acts including Brazil’s leading techno export ANNA, fast-rising German producer/DJ Lilly Palmer, and Berlin techno duo Pan-Pot are slated to perform during this special crossover with Nicolas Taboada as the local support. Drumcode boss Adam Beyer will take the decks to close out this historic collaborative event.
Founded in 1996, Adam Beyer has developed Drumcode into one of the most recognized techno labels in the world over the last few decades. Consistently one of Beatport’s top selling labels, Drumcode has delivered unrelenting releases from a variety of international acts in addition to hosting a number of label showcases around the globe. The forthcoming crossover between Drumcode and RESISTANCE will offer techno fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Rounding out the epic two-day event, RESISTANCE Buenos Aires will also host headlining performances from GRAMMY-nominated UK duo Camelphat, Knee Deep In Sound boss Hot Since 82, Dutch legend and Spectrum label owner Joris Voorn, and Italian brothers and Afterlife favorites Mathame on Friday, December 9. All of these acts will be making their debut performance for RESISTANCE Buenos Aires to showcase their individual brands of electronic music. Argentinian DJ Belu Clavero will represent the local support.
Hosted at the scenic Mandarine Park since its inception, previous RESISTANCE Buenos Aires lineups have included acts like Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Jamie Jones, Joseph Capriati, Marco Carola, Nicole Moudaber, Nic Fanciulli, Sasha & John Digweed, and The Martinez Brothers.
The fourth edition of RESISTANCE Medellin will take place at a brand new venue Estadio Cincuentenario, and feature techno legend Richie Hawtin making his debut event performance. Dubbed “one of the electronic dance world’s intellectual forces” by The New York Times, Hawtin’s prolific career has shaped the modern era of electronic music throughout his various projects.
RESISTANCE Medellin will also feature a round of debut headlining performances from German techno maestro Chris Liebing, Dutch legend Joris Voorn, versatile English producer/DJ Eats Everything, New York City icon Layla Benitez, and DJ Mag dubbed “Palestine’s techno champion” Sama’ Abdulhadi. Additional support will come from Colombian locals Matheo Velez and Alexa.

Previous lineups included the likes of Adam Beyer, Sasha & John Digweed, Paco Osuna, Nicole Moudaber, Seth Troxler, Charlotte De Witte, Dubfire, and more.
Lima holds an important place in RESISTANCE’s history, having hosted the first standalone RESISTANCE event back in 2016. This upcoming edition will mark RESISTANCE Lima’s fifth edition overall as it finds a new home at the Lima Polo Club.
Transporting the sounds of the underground to Lima, RESISTANCE has recruited headliners Camelphat, Hot Since 82, Joris Voorn, Mathame, Solardo, and Layla Benitez to make their official RESISTANCE Lima debut. Peruvian locals Ammo Avenue and Paul Trelles will also join the Lima roster to showcase their signature style.
