WELCOME to the best weekend of your musical existence
When it comes to music festivals, Ultra Music Festival is king. Taking over Miami during the last weekend of March every year since its inception in 1997, the highly-acclaimed festival has drawn fans from around the world for three days of electronic music from the best DJs in the industry. Heading into its 15th edition of the festival this year, Ultra added a second weekend to its calendar - marking the first time a major electronic festival make musical history by spanning two weekends.
With more than 150,000 EDM (electronic dance music) fans pouring into Bayfront Park to explore the venue’s seven towering stages, Ultra Music Festival is the second largest music festival in America. Packed tighter than a can of sardines, Ultra is not for the faint-hearted; it’s a physically-grueling and mentally-exhausting commitment that will leave your eardrums ringing for weeks and your feet begging for a massage. But for the die-hard house-head or the curious EDM explorer, Ultra will give you irreplaceable musical memories that will last a lifetime.
Because of the festival’s overwhelming nature, I’ve created a comprehensive guide to follow for a successful Ultra experience. From booking the perfect hotel to designing the most practical outfits, this guide will help you plan and prepare for what is arguably the craziest music festival in America. Happy raving everyone!
