Ultra Music Festival News - 2013 Ultra Music Festival Updates
What started as a one-day event following the Winter Music Conference in 1999, has become one of the most popular music festivals
in the world. Ultra Music Festival in Miami will celebrate its 16th year in 2014, and will once again bring out the top artists in electronic music to South Beach. After experimenting with a two-weekend format in 2013, Ultra will return to a single weekend in 2014.
When Ultra 2014 had its early bird and advanced sales in May, Ultra Music Festival 2014 tickets
sold out within 20 minutes of being released. Festival organizers promise “ground breaking stage productions” and will be announcing new features and developments in the coming months. In 2013, Phase One of the line-up was not announced until January. Barring any early leaks, 2014 should hold to a similar schedule.
The last one-weekend Ultra in 2012 drew about 175,000 EDM fans, and 2014 is expected to top that mark. Ultra’s success and popularity with international audiences has also drawn hundreds of thousands of fans to Ultra festivals abroad in cities including Ibiza, Spain; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Sao Paulo, Brazil; and Seoul, South Korea. In June, Croatia held its first Ultra Europe festival. With over 100,000 in attendance, it was the largest concert event in the country’s history.
