3. Ultra Music Festival – Miami, FL | March 27-29
Ultra Music Festival is no longer the festival it once was.

Housed in Miami’s most iconic space, Ultra Music Festival holds its reputation strong after over a decade of unparalleled bookings and size. This year, attendees are privileged with the world’s latest and greatest in everything from techno to garage to indie pop and 2015 might just stand as the festival’s most diverse yet.
