ultra music festival

Ultra Music Festival is at once utterly unique and completely representative of modern Miami: glitzy, glamorous, wild, and unlike any other music festival in the world. The three-day music festival, slated for March 27-29, 2015 is more than a concert: It’s a marathon event to be experienced, immersed within and endured.

If you attend Ultra 2015 in Miami, prepare for three full days of all-out EDM, supplied by stars and upstarts alike. In addition to plotting a plan for navigating the festival’s stages, you’ll also want to carefully plan your accommodations, transportation, and food and beverage plans.

Plan Your Festival Itinerary

The first step to enjoying a seamless and successful Ultra Music Festival in Miami is to ensure you know who’s playing when and where. Find your favorite DJs and performers on the lineup and pre-emptively trace your route from stage to stage across Bayfront Park.

Ultra will officially announce set times and locations in mid-to-late March. Until then, the easiest way to keep tabs on where and when the festival’s top artists will be performing is to visit the Ultra Music Festival Lineup page.

Embrace Your Home Away From Home

Long days (and nights) of dancing and partying call for equal measures of relaxation, whenever you can find a brief reprieve. The festival, held at Miami’s Bayfront Park, is within minutes of a number of hotels.

If you’d like to blend your Ultra Music Festival experience with the fabled South Beach party scene and the serenity of the oceanfront, consider staying a few minutes from the action over in Miami Beach. Just a brief Uber trip away from the festival is Miami Beach, where you can soak up the sun, grab a classic Cuban coffee, and recover from the hangover you’re bound to be nursing.

Blue Moon Hotel serves as an ideal Ultra Music Festival hotel, offering comfortable accommodations within walking distance of the beach and just a few minutes’ drive from Bayfront Park.

Insiders’ Tip: If you’re looking for nightlife outside the fences of Ultra Music Festival, you’re in luck: Miami has plenty of it. Consult our guide to the best dance clubs in Miami Beach for more information.


Find Great Food + Drink

You may only be in South Florida to enjoy the beats, the sunshine and the beautiful people, but you’ll still require sustenance. Thankfully, Miami offers plenty of unique, delicious and affordable places to eat and imbibe to your stomach’s content.

Whether you’re in the mood for authentic Cuban eats, fresh Atlantic seafood, upscale Italian food, or cuisine with unique pan-Asian flair, you’ll find something to love somewhere in Miami or Miami Beach. After the festival winds down each night, you can continue your exploration of the South Florida scene by hitting one of the many clubs or bars that stay open late.
