Promoters are expecting over 150,000 attendees over the festival’s three-day run in Miami, Florida. The massive ticket sales make this the first major music festival in North America this season and one of the biggest—if not the biggest— electronic music event in the world.
With headliners like Tiesto, Deadmau5, Moby, The Chemical Brothers, Carl Cox and (Duran Duran?), it’s no surprise that the festival sold out each class of passes, ranging from $119 to $499.
Still, there is hope for those searching for the thumping bass and electronic bells and whistles.
The Winter Music Conference will be sounding off on Miami Beach and bleeding out to the local clubs two weeks prior. There’s also no doubt that clubs will be throwing after-parties for Ultra’s raging insomniacs.
A particularly intriguing after-party will feature a yet-to-be-announced side-project of Ultra artist The Disco Biscuits at Grand Central in downtown.
So don’t despair. Try your luck at Stubhub and other ticket sites for passes to the sold out festival. Or you can save your cash and hit the clubs for some late night kicks. Your choice.
