Ultra Music Festival Two Weekends This Year

More than 13 thousand fans from all over the world tuned into Ultra Music Festival's live webcast announcing that the popular electronic festival will take place over two weekends, not just one, this upcoming year. It all goes down March 15 to 17 and March 22 to 24. 

Fans thought the announcement was that the lineup was going to include Swedish House Mafia and Daft Punk, who haven’t played there in 10 years, or even a hologram DJ AM.

The festival celebrates its 15th anniversary this upcoming year.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, Oct. 17, at UltraMusicFestival.com.

Last year, more than 165 thousand fans attended the festival and more than 2 million watched it on live stream.

An independent study by the Washington Economics Group Inc. found that Ultra contributed $79 million/year and 915 jobs to Miami-Dade County. Actually, the majority of fans at Ultra, over 60 percent, travel from outside the county, to the festival.
