If you've been to Creamfields and think it's the daddy of electronic music festivals, then Ultra Music Festival in Miami must be the older, wiser granddaddy. This world-renowned event attracts the very best DJs, bringing thousands of visitors to Downtown Miami every single year.
Running for three days at Bayfront Park, this is the festival of the year for electronic music fans, where a variety of stages host the biggest names in the business. If you're lucky enough to get a ticket, you can guarantee a star-studded line-up that will include huge name acts such as Martin Garrix, Avicii and Afrojack. As expected, tickets sell out fast so you'll need to be quick to snap them up. Sign-up for on-sale alerts at Viagogo to buy tickets as soon as they go on sale.
The Ultra brand has become so big over the last 20 years that it now has Ultra music festivals all over the world in a number of destinations. However, Miami will always be the festival's home since its conception back in 1999 - a one-day concert on the gorgeous sands of South Beach.
With so many years experience under his belt, Ultra Music Festival might be getting on a bit but there's still plenty of life left in the 'old man' yet.
- Get here: Parking is limited, so it is best to take a bus or train to the festival.
- Stay: There are official festival hotels but we recommend staying downtown at the very least.
