Ultra Music Festival , one of the nation's premier electronic music gatherings, took over downtown Miami this past weekend in a flurry of lasers, pyrotechnics, beats and dancing attendees.

Eighteen years in and a few international spin-offs later, Ultra stills knows how to bring a bombastic show. Dozens of the world's best DJs – from Afrojack, to Avicii, to Carl Cox, to David Guetta, to Seth Troxler, Tycho and many more – brought out the party animals in every festival-goer through pulsing tidal waves of music, Arcadia Spectacular made its mindblowing American debut with its 65-foot-tall, metal spider DJ booth, and, when The Prodigy had to cancel last minute, deadmau5 stepped up to fill in. Nineteen-year-old superstar Martin Garrix even unveiled a staggering 10 new tracks during his headlining slot.

Dates for 2017 are already announced, and tickets sell out fast. If you're looking to expand your summer festival schedule beyond those desert romps you always attend, the photos below will surely land you at Ultra in 2017.
