Attraction details
Owner description: A festival as chic as the city from which it was born, Ultra brings together the best DJs, electronic and dance acts from around the world, to Miami. Taking place during the annual Winter Music Conference in March, the festival is perfectly timed to ride the wave of electro music cruising through the city. Deadmau5, Carl Cox, David Guetta and Tiesto have all played Ultra previously, and today the festival is so successful that it's been replicated as far afield as Ibiza, Buenos Aires, Tokyo and Johannesburg.

This really feels like a once in a lifetime experience. Amazing music, great atmosphere, and gorgeous scenery. The location is fantastic. You get a gorgeous view of the skyline at all times, and it close to places to stay so no need to camp outdoors.
Yes, there are bathroom issues: most aren't clean (especially by day 3) and the hand wash pumps are basically out of order by day 2, but I never had trouble finding a port o potty if needed. Those sorts of experiences are par for the course with a huge festival like this.

Ultra Music Festival is the kick starter for the festival season, no matter the genre you like it has a bit of it all, sunny vibes and international atmosphere.

Just make sure you are prepared for some time waiting in line to get in but enjoy the talks around you and make new friends, bathrooms are bad so probably just prepare yourself to erase that from your experience.

Be open to discover new music and new artist and above all to make new friends from around the globe.

This festival was priced as the best but in my opinion, it was far from it. The lines for the bathrooms were really long near the main stage. On the second day people were tired of waiting and ended up peeing against the walls the whole area was flooded with pee! The smell was terrible. Many of the stalls were out of toilet paper and all of them were out of sanitizer. I went with a group of 7 friends and all of us returned home puking. I've been to spring awakening, moonrise, edc Orlando, and lost lands but I paid the most for Ultra by far the worst when it comes to sanitation and organization. I was even warned by the people at EDC that the people that go to ultra do not understand PLUR and now I get it. The lineup made up for it but it seems like they don't give it as much effort as they could setting up the fest. Not worth the money IMO.

Absolutely insane energy at this festival from friday to sunday. So many good looking and happy+friendly people all around, it was just a pleasure and an honor to be part of this year's UMF. Swedish House Mafia's closing set was the best, 10/10 points.
