This past weekend, Friday, March 26 and Saturday, March 27, over 100,000 music enthusiasts descended on Miami’s Bicentennial Park for the 12th annual ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL (UMF), drawing its largest attendance numbers ever for its first sold-out show as a two-day event. This astounding number also marks the first time ever an event has sold out, let alone for two days, Bicentennial Park. The festival was also the recipient of an IDMA (International Dance Music Award) for “Best Music Event” for its fifth year in a row.
We had an MCB guest contributor in Miami check out over 200 international leading electronic music performers, DJs and cutting-edge bands alongside Miami regional artists performed over the two-day extravaganza in addition to the festival’s stellar line-up spearheaded by Friday mainstage headliner Tiësto and Saturday’s headliner Deadmau5.
