Ultra Music Festival Weekend 2: “It’s all systems go”
We won! UMF organizers and fans have spoken, and have convinced the city of Miami to allow the second weekend to happen, thus becoming the first electronic music festival to rage back to back weekends. Ultra Music Festival’s 15th anniversary will indeed be celebrated March 15-17th and 22-24th, 2013! Myself along with a few FITA staff will be going that second weekend, will you?
See what UMF had to say about the outcome:
“Yes, it’s all systems go and we are moving full steam ahead!!! ULTRA Music Festival will make history in 2013 as the world’s first ever ELECTRONIC music festival to take place over two weekends on March 15-17 and March 22-24 in celebration of our 15 Year Anniversary. We appreciate the incredible support of the city of Miami Commission, Mayor, Bayfront Park Management Trust, and Fire and Police Departments, as together we have implemented a logistical plan that addresses everyone’s concerns, including those of local residents and businesses, allowing us to move forward and focus on producing the first rate, world class event ULTRA has become. We’re extremely excited about the double-weekend celebration that will take place at the world’s most beautiful event location, Bayfront Park & Biscayne Blvd, in the heart of the Magic City, Downtown Miami. As we enter our 15th year, and approach a complete SELL OUT of all 330,000 available tickets, those of you lucky enough to attend can expect ULTRA’s strongest and most diverse lineup to date, with an unparalleled level of production never before seen at a festival of this magnitude. As has become our signature, ticket holders can expect a wide array of surprises, including the possibility of unannounced mega artist appearances! ULTRA Music Festival is proud to be the World’s Premier Electronic Music Festival, and we would like to thank all of the artists, managers, agents and most importantly, THE FANS, who have contributed to making ULTRA a focal point of the strongest musical and cultural movement on earth. ULTRA 15… HERE WE GO!!!”
