Every year, there comes a time when the festival talk begins to bubble up- lineups come out, stories from the previous year are exchanged, and tickets are frantically purchased. Well, it's that time again, and we couldn't be more excited.
Along with the week long Winter Music Conference in March comes Ultra, a festival that has been going strong since 1999. What once was a one day event has now turned into three days, with plenty of talent stacked to keep any dance music lover satisfied all weekend. This year the talent ranges from Art Department and Damian Lazarus to M83 and Neon Indian.
There will always be discrepancies regarding ticket pricing, regardless of event- however, Deadmau5 decided to go public with his thoughts on Ultra's prices this year, telling Youtube viewers that "someone is laughing all the way to the bank." With tickets being sold out well before the event begins, we're starting to think that perhaps festivals are just recession-proof.
For those of you heading to Miami this year, don't forget the sunscreen. See you out there, WL
