Part of the appeal of staying at a South Beach hotel is the area’s penchant for its high energy. When night falls, the atmosphere on streets like Ocean Drive can quickly skyrocket from relaxed to celebratory with all of the various places playing fantastic music by the beach. With music being so popular in Miami, many notable names and festivals frequently host their events in South Florida, and one of the most popular is the Ultra Music Festival.
The annual Ultra Music Festival takes place outdoors and is typically held in Miami’s Bayfront Park. Founded in 1999 and earning its name from the band Depeche Mode’s third album of the same name, the three-day festival has become one of the most important in South Florida and continually draws some of the biggest and most respected names in electronic music. Danish trance producer Arman van Buuren has been named the top DJ in the world more than four times by DJ Magazine and is one of the scheduled acts expected to perform alongside other notable names. These names include French DJ David Guetta, English music group The Prodigy, up and coming Norwegian DJ Kygo, and Dutch DJ Tiësto, among numerous others.
Ultra Music Festival kicks off on March 18th and continues until the 20th. General admission tickets are sold out but there are VIP tickets still available that include admission to all three days of the event. Bayfront Park is less than twenty minutes away from the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach, which has 79 luxuriously appointed Miami Beach hotel suites to choose from. Call 305.672.4554 to book your stay!
