It’s not too much to says that Ultra Music Festival is now a worldwide phenomenon. Cofounded in 1999 by UMF Entertainment mastermind Russell Faibisch, every year at the end of the third week in March, a massive mob of half-naked, Day-Glo-soaked revelers swarms downtown Miami, flooding the streets and sidewalks, overloading the public transit system, and dancing all the way down to the Ultra festival grounds.
Ultra had its most epic outing, expanding to three days, boasting more than 200 electronic and pop acts — such as Avicii, Fatboy Slim, Justice, & #1 & #2 Dj Mag TOP 100; David Guetta & Armiin Van Buuren — and attracting more than 150,000 house music lovers.
This week Ultra has already announced the date for the 15th anniversary edition of 2013 witch take place the next 22, 23 & 24th March 2013 ! Until that special edition, they announced they would be expanding their event brand, UMF, into Poland, South Korea, and Argentina, adding to an already impressive run of festivals in Brazil and Ibiza. It marks a major turning point for the event organisers, as they move beyond the comfy confines of Miami in an attempt to reach a worldwide audience.
“The plan for Ultra is to always get better, bigger, stronger. But it’s very humbling to watch Ultra grow and grow and grow,” Faibisch admits. “Any time I sit down and really think about it, I’m so appreciative. It’s a dream. And we actually made it happen.”
No doubts this 2013 “15th Anniversary Special Edition” will be epic & outstanding so stay tuned for grabing your tickets on time !
