From Miami to Cozumel, Mexico
With Ultra Music Festival and the annual Winter Music Conference coinciding in late March, Miami has rightfully become the dance music Mecca in the Spring time.
Ultra was founded in 1999, and over the years it has expanded to every corner of the globe, including Brazil, Ibiza, Croatia, Korea, and more. This year, Ultra Miami will be from March 27 to 29, and phase 1 headliners include heavyweights Tiesto, Afrojack, Alesso, Armin Van Buuren, David Guetta, and Avicii.
As of 2016, Ultra Music Festival is home to seven stages that span across the picturesque Bayfront Park which include the Main Stage, the Live Stage, the Megastructure, the Worldwide Stage, the UMF Radio Stage, the Resistance Stage, and Stage 7.
Although they share names, Ultra Music Festival was not directly tied to Ultra Records, an electronic music record label. However, the two entities did announce a “global alliance” in August 2012, which would allow them to collaborate on marketing and cross-promotion.
