In 2013, Ultra Music Festival shattered attendance records as approximately 330,000 revelers descended upon Miami’s Bayfront Park and Biscayne Boulevard for two weekends of extraordinary musical talent and an out of this world stage-production. Becoming the first electronic music festival in history to expand to two weekends, ULTRA 15 saw an unprecedented gathering of artists, which reportedly displayed the largest variety of electronic music that North America had ever seen. Featuring Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Trap, Electro, Techno, Deep House, Trance and more, Ultra Music Festival conquered practically every facet of EDM, providing a plethora of incredible musical experiences to satisfy virtually every taste and preference.
Ultra Music Festival 15 featured the largest and most technically advanced concert stage production and designs ever seen at an outdoor festival, as the latest in staging automation technology, video, set design, and creative LED video systems were combined to form a complete and awe-inspiring audiovisual experience. The massive Main Stage measured in at over 200 ft. wide and 100 ft. high, housing 1050 intelligent lights, 12,000 shots of pyrotechnics, the most dynamic lighting rig to be found at any stage found on earth, and 12 full-color, 32-watt lasers. Ultra’s iconic Mega Structure once again pushed the boundaries of light and sound production, featuring moving honeycomb-shaped LED screens above, and a powerful Funktion One sound system that more than satisfied all the bass-heads in attendance not to mention the 5 additional state-of-the-art stages located around the festival grounds, including Bayfront Park’s Klipsch Amphitheater, which doubled as the ULTRA Live Stage.
Attendees from more than 95 countries flocked to downtown Miami’s 32-acre Bayfront Park during Miami Music Week for the 2013 edition of Ultra Music Festival. Following on the heels of this landmark event, the 2014 festival is eagerly anticipated by fans worldwide.
For the first time ever, all SIX DAYS of the world’s premier electronic event were streamed live over the internet via Ultra’s official YouTube channel UMF TV, in a broadcast which saw over 200 of the world’s leading DJs and electronic musicians watched by an audience of over 10 MILLION unique viewers from all corners of the globe—officially making Ultra the most viewed festival in North America to date! Arguably the most notable climax of the festival was the last ever show from world-dominating Scandinavian trio Swedish House Mafia, which was watched online by over 200,000 concurrent fans worldwide. This figure has now been officially declared by YouTube as the highest concurrent number of views for any US non-sponsored music stream!
The dates for the upcoming Ultra Music Festival are March 28-30, 2014.
The 16th Annual Ultra Music Festival will take place March 28, 29 & 30, 2014. Dates for the additional weekend are pending the approval of the City of Miami Commission and will be released if they become available.
