Scalpers are happily standing by and more than willing to provide you with tickets to Ultra at over two times the original price!

But seriously, if you don’t have tickets yet, you’re shit out of luck. Wondering why Ultra Music Festival is such a big deal? Here’s a little information to get you up to speed. The Ultra Music Festival has been around since the late 90’s and has expanded to feature full days worth of all you can handle musical ecstasy by the dance artists you’ve come to know and love as well as new ones you’ve yet to discover. These events take place in Brazil, Ibiza and the most well known event being held in Miami Beach, Florida during the last week of March. UMF’s popularity has led to it becoming a bit of a trend setter. It has influenced other top dance music festivals around the world, one of those being New York’s very own Electric Zoo Festival, who in light of the recent Ultra expansion from two to three days has also followed suit.
