ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL celebrated its eighteenth edition in style this weekend with another hugely successful production at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami that was sold out months in advance. The World’s Premier Electronic Music Festival welcomed 165,000 Ultranauts from 87 countries worldwide to witness hundreds of world-class DJs and LIVE acts perform across eight state-of-the-art stages and/or installations.

For the millions of fans who couldn’t make it to the sold out event, ULTRA LIVE (presented by UMF TV™, produced by NOMOBO and powered by 7UP) was on hand again this year, transmitting LIVE across the weekend from a custom-built studio in the heart of the event grounds. To date, a staggering 14+ million people from 152 countries tuned in to watch the live stream and subsequent DJ sets posted online since the event.


For the third year running, Ultra Music Festival was the #1 trending item on both Facebook and Twitter across the three days, and received a staggering 5.4 million mentions on social media, which is more than any 3-day music festival in history!

With regards to talent, arguably the biggest talking point of the event was the omnipresence of superstar deadmau5, who ended up performing THREE times across the weekend. Performing for the second time on Sunday evening inside the Megastructure for Armin’s annual ‘A State Of Trance’, the Canadian then joined Pendulum as a special guest to close out the Ultra Main Stage on Sunday night, performing ‘Ghosts N Stuff’, reaping praise from fans, viewers and media from across the world.

Never outdone, ULTRA favorite Carl Cox hosted his legendary Carl Cox and Friends Arena for an incredible 12th year inside the famed Megastructure. Joined by Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Joseph Capriati and Nicole Moudaber to name but a few, the Godfather of Dance put on a special show for the masses across Friday and Saturday.

For the electronic music fans, the dates for Ultra 2017 were announced before the closing of this years event. Safe the dates Ultranauts March 24-26, 2017.
