Next week, thousands of EDM fanatics will descend upon the picturesque Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida for the nineteenth installation of the world’s biggest electronic music showcase. Ultra Music Festival will take place March 24-26 during Miami Music Week, and marks the official start of festival season. This year, the four-day outdoor dance-a-thon is completely sold out, so pass holders get ready for a non-stop rager.
The 2017 lineup was announced in three phases, each dropping gems that left the internet in a frenzy. The eight-stage festival features a diverse lineup of music ranging from hip-hop to techno. Live acts include Cypress Hill, Ice Cube, KSHMR, The Prodigy, Justice, Major Lazer, and much more. In addition to these captivating live performances, Above & Beyond, Afrojack, and Alesso are just a few of the top-tier DJs on the bill.
But what sets Ultra Music Festival apart is its festival within a festival, Resistance. If you’ve attended Ultra in previous years, you’re likely familiar with Arcadia Spectacular’s Spider structure that hosts an array of EDM giants. This year, Resistance has doubled down with two massive stages at the park, introducing the brand new MegaStructure on Friday and Saturday. Ultra’s global brand ambassador, Carl Cox, is expected to lead the charge for an all out dance party, so remember to put your phones down and take in every moment.
The stages are taking shape as we speak and set times are out now. Don’t forget to customize your schedules in the Ultra mobile app so that you can explore the many different sounds and stages with ease. If you’re missing the party, take a look at the full lineup below and start making plans for 2018.
