ULTRA. UMF. ULTRA 2013. ULTRA 15. Whatever you may call the gigantic electronic music festival that consumes Miami every year in March, there’s really only one way to describe it: The highest mind-blowing orgasm never thought possible for your ears…continuously. And this year, it goes for TWO consecutive weekends! Previous years had the festival from March 23rd – 25th but in typical ULTRA fashion, they’re doing it bigger and better this year, breaking the festival up into two weekends with the first weekend going from March 15th – 17th and the second weekend from March 22nd – 24th.
This years event also brings some unfamiliar faces to the ULTRA scene, specifically superstar DJ, Deadmau5 (pronounced ‘Dead Mouse’.) Deadmau5 has been very vocal with his disapproval of the way ULTRA is produced and the ticket prices. In a Ustream back and forth with fans in late 2011/early 2012, Deadmau5 said, “Ultra to me is like the definition of insanity. You know, it’s doing the same fucking thing every year and expecting different results every time.”
Well, I think it’s safe to say that the coordinators and event planners at ULTRA have done something right to have someone that’s been so publicly vocal about ULTRA actually change their minds and decide to play at the show. But Deadmau5 isn’t the only major change to ULTRA – 2013 will forever be known as the last year Swedish House Mafia was one. The powerhouse trio, comprised of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, have officially said they’re done and moving on to new things – which makes ULTRA 15 their last show together. So expect a HUGE presence at the main stage where they will be playing on Friday the 15th and Sunday the 24th.
And of course all your other favorites will be there: Kaskade, Afrojack, Hardwell, Knife Party, Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Tiesto, Martin Solveig, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Benny Benassi, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Bingo Players, Carl Cox, Cosmic Gate, Thievery Corporation, Bassnectar and of course everyone’s favorite cake throwin’, champagne poppin’ DJ, Steve Aoki.
With three weeks remaining until the festival is here, tickets are selling extremely fast. In fact, the 2nd weekend eneral admission and VIP tickets are completely sold out already. But don’t worry! You can still go to the 2nd weekend by purchasing the Weekend 1 & Weekend 2 combo tickets – Both general admission and VIP tickets are still available (and is actually less than buying both weekends separately.) So don’t wait any longer! The closer we get to ULTRA 15, the more likely the tickets will be completely sold out! CLICK HERE to get your tickets now! And remember, RAGE RESPONSIBLY
