The Ultra Music Festival in Miami: swimming pools, worldwide DJ's and speakers -- both kinds. It's a tropical hook up of electronic musicians and minds, all gathered together for 3 days of music, experimentation, and more music. Check out the festival guide for more information and a complete lineup.
So what does the weekend look like? The weather forecast says sunny and 85 degrees all weekend. The musical outlook is incredible with the likes of Tiesto, Deadmau5, the Chemical Brothers Carl Cox and more set to appear.
We've set up an Ultra Music Festival Video Channel on the Spacelab Media Player and will be adding videos during and after the festival. Check out videos of Friday night performances from Tiesto, Carl Cox and Pendulum.
There's also an Ultra Music Festival live stream webcast being done up by SiriusXM. It starts on Friday night at 6: PM EST And includes Benny Benassi, Roger Sanchez, Cato K and more. Check out the live webcast schedule for more information.
There's a big switch going on this year: The UMC and the Winter Music Conference have unofficially parted ways. They used to happen over the same weekend, and people would swing back and forth from one event to the other. This year the Ultra Music Festival happens on March 26 - 27, while the Winter Music Conference happened during the usual dates of March 8 - 12.
This year, KLF Airlines worked with Sied van Riel and Wilco Jung, a Dutch DJ and filmmaker, on a plane that's a party charter going from Amsterdam to Miami for UMF. Imagine flying on a non-stop party from Amsterdam to Miami for the Ultra Music Festival.
