Ultra Music Festival is an electronic festival whose flagship event takes place in Miami USA, as well as including other destinations in the world.

Previous festival events have been held in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Croatia, Ibiza, South Korea and of course Miami.

In 2014 the festival has announced its expansion to South Africa and Japan. The festival regularly sells out and is considered one of the top of its kind, for both its global reach, and the line up it is able to attract.

Trivia

Safety concerns for the 2013 were risen, when a row of video screens on a stage collapsed during the pre-event setup, with 2 of the 4 victims in a critical condition.

Despite this, the 15th anniversay of the festival on that year was record-breaking, with 330,000 in attendance, and all six days of the event streamed live online, making it the most viewed North American event to date.
