WORLD’S LARGEST ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL EXPANDS
Ultra Music Festival has announced the Phase 1 Artist Lineup. Reportedly, tickets are moving fast and only a limited amount remain (with early bird and advance on-sale tickets selling out in record time). Ultra is also returning to downtown Miami with Bayfront Park as its new location in order to accommodate a larger footprint for increased capacity. Over the last few years, the festival took place at Bicentennial Park, but after reaching a record-breaking 150,000 in attendance in 2012, and becoming the first ever and only 3-day music festival of its kind to completely sell out 150,000 tickets six weeks in advance, Ultra is moving next door to the waterfront park nestled between Biscayne Bay and Biscayne Boulevard, where it last took place in 2005, with plans to transform and customize the park.
