Ultra Music Festival Celebrates 15 Year Anniversary with a Bang!
Ultra Music Festival, one of the country's largest dance music gatherings, concluded this weekend, ending a 10-day journey of good music and good vibes.
I had the chance to head down to Miami for the first weekend of fun, and it turned out to be a great first UMF experience. I really love how they are branching into all types of music, not only within the electronic music community, but outside of it as well.
The main act of this year's 15th anniversary show was the big stage trio, Swedish House Mafia, who concluded their farewell tour in Miami. Although I have seen most of the headlining DJs before, I was definitely surprised by a lot of the early day sets.
The young French prodigy, Madeon, put on my favorite show of the weekend with his unique mixing style and track selection. The trap-style duo, Flosstradamus, also had the crowd in a frenzy with their mix of EDM and Hip-Hop.
Of course, I had to see big Snoop Dogg bring his iconic rap set to the mostly EDM crowd, preceded by his album mates Major Lazer on the Live Stage. Overall it was a great trip down to South Beach to see the top names in electronic dance music all together in one place!
