Miami Music Week is back, and with it its biggest draw: Ultra Music Festival.
From March 24 to 26, thousands of electronic dance music enthusiasts will converge upon Miami for a weekend chock full of legendary artists and DJs. This is the nineteenth edition of the Ultra, marking the culmination of the festival season in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the country.
While general admission tickets are sold out (per usual), there are a handful of VIP tickets remaining. Click here for a look at those.
The secondary market appears to be robust, with tickets on sites such as StubHub, Ebay, and others showing a number of GA tickets still available, albeit at a bit higher price than the Tier 1 price of roughly $350.
The lineup continues to be among the strongest in the world when it comes to the EDM genre. Phase One headliners include the likes of Galantis, Zedd, and Adam Beyer.
Phase Two covers an array of genres, including Alan Walker, Datsik, Ferry Corsten, Robin Schulz, Tchami and others.
There are also a number of live acts performing, including one you might not expect: Ice Cube. He’ll be performing on Saturday night on the Live Stage. Major Lazer will also headline a multitude of live acts. Ultra stalwart Carl Cox and superstars such as David Guetta, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Tiesto, and Steve Aoki headline the DJ acts for the weekend.

Adam Beyer will headline the ‘Resistance’ lineup, powered by the vaunted Arcadia Spectacular’s SPIDER stage. Last year we spoke with the creators of this 50-ton metallic spider that was shipped all the way from Bangkok. The Arcadia Spectacular features a unique 360-degree dance music experience; the spider itself was created almost entirely from repurposed and recycled military and industrial hardware; the eye sockets are made from recycled jet engines!
The Resistance lineup will include Maya Jane Coles, Patrick Topping, and others.
UMF Radio will anchor Ultra’s experience, providing a live look through the airwaves for those who can’t make it to the festivities. The station’s coverage will include hours of live music and interviews across dozens of radio networks and countries.
