Ultra Music Festival
Ultra Music Festival is held in Miami Florida during late winter around the end of March. It is known for having virtually every relevant EDM artist perform. It used to coincide with WMC (Western Music Conference) however there was some kind of disagreement that happened in 2011 which made Ultra split off to a different week. Ultra Music Festival is notorious for bringing in top EDM talent that typically play outside of the Festival that same weekend. Smaller pool parties commonly have large name acts throughout the weekend, however entry prices to these smaller parties can vary.
Ultra is currently the largest EDM Music Festival on the East Coast of the United States, however it is difficult to say if it is the largest of it’s kind in North America as Electric Daisy Carnival (held in Las Vegas, Nevada) has recently exploded in popularity. Tickets for Ultra go for over $300 for the weekend with no available on-site camping as the festival is held in the middle of Miami. Best chances for accommodation is to book a hotel as early as possible.
