Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida, is one of the biggest electronic music gatherings in the world, featuring hundreds of the most talented names in the genre, a massive, fire-spitting metal spider that doubles as a stage, and attendees from all over the globe ravenous for driving beats, epic drops and spectacular lasers.
Despite some strife with the local community, Ultra Miami remains the festival franchise's flagship event and attracts over 165,000 people who come to experience its epic, unforgettable atmosphere and contributes tens of millions of dollars to Miami's economy annually. And of course, it showcases the sunkissed, oceanside beauty of Miami. In the wake of Hurricane Irma, Miami is still cleaning up; hopefully next year's Ultra can bring some much needed cashflow to aid those efforts.
Next year will be Ultra's 20th year in Miami – but first, the festival is celebrating its 19th year in the books with an awesome aftermovie, which dropped this week. The cinematic creation takes viewers from set-up, to the moments attendees first joyously walk through the festival's gates, on a trip past all of the festival's attractions, through to the height of all the action, punctuated by fireworks galore. Enjoy the 15-minute video above.
