Ultra Music Fest Essentials
Here are some things you’ll want to make sure you have on you when you’re party hopping and enjoying the music festival days:
The Best Way to Experience It All
Whichever part of the week you’re in town for, the best way to experience it all is to book a centrally located hotel in Miami or a Miami hotel near Miami Music Week that also has elements of refreshment and relaxation. Z Ocean Hotel is right on Collins and Ocean Drive – steps away from the ocean, shopping at Lincoln Road, constantly surrounded by buses, taxis, Ubers and Lyfts, across the street from a CitiBike station and about 15-20 minutes away from where all the events will be taking place. There are also shuttle bus pickup points in the Arts & Entertainment District (serving Downtown, Wynwood, Midtown and all areas North of the Greater Miami Area)
American Airlines Arena (serving Downtown Miami and Brickell) Vizcaya (serving Brickell, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables and all areas South of the Greater Miami Area) and a ferry bus pickup point at Bayside Marketplace. From these transit hubs, shuttle transportation will be provided FREE to patrons with valid festival wristbands. Alternatively, a limited number of General Admission 3-day passes for ferry transportation are on sale, exclusively to those who purchased festival tickets.
Enjoy the parties and events then head back to your Miami Beach hotel where you can indulge in a private, in-room hot tub to relax and wind down from all the excitement. It’s the perfect spot to recharge and get ready for the next round of parties and events!
