Ultra Music Festival Miami, USA, 2020
March 20 - March 22
The Ultra Music Festival Miami is one of the biggest EDM (electronic dance music) parties in the world and it always kicks off the concert season with style in Florida.
The Ultra has moved around Miami, though it will be returning to the Bayfront Park for 2020. This is an event that has grown and grown, through the years (see history, below).
The line-up for 2020 will be confirmed later, though in 2019 the line-up included dozens of groups and DJs including Carlcox, David Guetta, Marshmello and Tiesto.
The History of the Ultra Music Festival Miami
Taking its name from the 1997 Depeche Mode album, when it was first held in 1999 the Ultra was a one-day event. It became a two-day event in 2006 and since 2011 it has spread across three days. In 2013, the total attendance across the three days was 330,000 people.
You may hear of Ultra concerts elsewhere as part of its worldwide franchise. For example for Asia in China, South Korea, Japan and Singapore; in South Africa; Australia; whilst Latin America includes the following places: Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Colombia. Ultra Europe has been held recently in Split, Croatia.
Though Miami is the true, ultra Ultra.
Other Things to Do in Miami
The city has a range of flavours. In Little Havana is the Cuban community, whilst the Art Deco District is great for architectural buffs and Ocean Drive is worth a visit too and it will also bring you to the famous Miami Beach.
For nature lovers there are the botanical gardens, Jungle Island, Viscaya Gardens and, nearby, the Everglades. There is the Science Museum and the Gold Coast Railway Museum.
There are some high-crime zones in Miami, though these are not near the touristy areas, so know where you are going if you are ranging widely.
