Ultra 2015

Ultra 2010 by Oliver Correa

Ultra Music Festival is the world's largest electronic music festival, with over 100,000 attendees from nearly 80 different countries. The festival started as a closing exhibition to Miami's Winter Music Conference in 1999, and has since expanded to three full days of pulsating electronic music. While the Winter Music Conference and Ultra are now separate events, they both overlap during Miami Music Week, which usually happens in the last full week in March.

Ultra is a must for electronic music lovers. The atmosphere of being surrounded by fellow passionate enthusiasts from around the world is rare to come by and hard to beat. Be prepared to get sweaty, dirty, and make lots of new friends to rave with throughout the weekend. So if you enjoy dancing for three days straight, soaking up the Miami sun, and receiving hugs from the nicest strangers in neon wigs and fuzzy boots that you'll ever meet, all while listening to the best established and emerging electronic artists the world has to offer, then grab your sunglasses and glow sticks, because Ultra is for you.

Note: Ultra overlaps with Winter Music Conference, so even if you're in Miami just for Ultra, you can still use our Guide to WMC in addition this one. While this guide has the rundown on Downtown Miami, the WMC guide has all you need to know while in South Beach.
