Ultra Music EDM Holiday for Ravers!
Since 1999, Ultra Music Festival has grown from a handful of stoned, drum’n’bass-loving, hippie slackers standing barefoot in the sands of South Beach to bringing in something like 150,000 tweekers and candy ravers from around to world to Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami. This year will definitely make the city even more magical with Ultra’s usual massive name DJs like Afrojack, Avicii and Carl Cox. Also newer stars like Purity Ring and Knife Party. Ultra has spread its bass-busting beats all over the world from Ibiza to Seoul, Korea, and just recently announced an expansion to Rio de Janeiro. In the fall, you can round out your EDM year with a different electronic fest, EDC Orlando.
If you’re heart is set on Ultra Music, it’s smart to plan your trip in advance. Hotels are at their highest prices of the year and often sell out. So snagging a room in advance can offer peace of mind and savings. Ultra, itself, has been known to sell out and is also expensive. Weekend passes start around $300 and individual day tickets are not offered. It’s smart to take advantage of early bird pricing.
At the festival, it’s important to remember that temperatures are already hot in Miami in March, so dress appropriately. There are multiple stations throughout the grounds to fill water bottles. Most onsite vendors only accept cash, so be prepared. Also, beware of pickpockets and keep your smartphone closely guarded.
While Ultra is no doubt the main event of the week, the entire city is filled with incredible parties and events. It’s possible to see your favorite DJs in more intimate settings throughout the week. So even if you don’t get a ticket to Ultra, there are plenty of reasons to visit Miami during MMW.
