Enormous crowds of enthusiastic fans of all ages and from across the world conversed to create an amazing opening show. The key stage for Ultra’s first day on Friday had an all-star listing of talent amid them: Afrojack, David Guetta, Tiesto, and Skrillex among others who brought dazzling visual elements and fresh music,
and used Ultra’s new tricks to take the multitude to new heights for 2012.
The Ultra music festival was held on 23-25 March in Miami and this was its 14th year in a row. The estimated attendance was about 150,000 for three continuous days. The lineup on Friday, March 23rd, was Carl Cox, Mike Snow, Tommy Tash, The Knocks, Nick Romero, Chris Lake, and Dirty South among others. The lineup for Saturday, March 24, was: Fatboy slim, Metronomy, Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, 12th Planet, High Contrast, and Carbon Airways among other artists. On Sunday, March 25th, there were: David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Sander Van Doom, Magnetic Man, Jamie Jones, Bloody Beetroots (DJ Set) among other artists.
The festival goers bolded the Miami afternoon heat for all the three consecutive days only to be later charmed by the warm, restrained nights Florida is famous for. As the afternoon Sunday started off as being cloudy, the weather detained out long enough for one last day of madness in Bayfront Park. Party goers praised Bayfront Park’s pleasant view of the water and excess of concrete, organized areas for drinks, food and commodities. This year’s event was much more prepared and better sustained than in the other years, with immense cleaning crew doing regular rounds throughout the park. The party goers were a diverse crowd from across the world to enjoy the Miami climate and the world’s most excellent selection of electronic dance music.
