Ultra Music Festival is this weekend in South Beach, and the lineup is absolutely insane. Whether you're unloading the ridiculous amount of cash to go or not, you should absolutely be attending Miami Music Week, happening at the same time.
Most of the events are far cheaper than an Ultra ticket right now, and some are even free! It's an incredible experience that you need to check out.
Here's the best events for the weekend:
For your daytime adventure, you should absolutely head to Delano Beach Club for Oliver Heldens' Heldeep Pool Party! Heldens will undoubtedly provide a great mix of tropical and dance vibes all afternoon for the start of the weekend. Not to mention, Steve James and SNBRN will also be among the supporting acts.
The night time moves are a tougher decision. One option is to head to Soho Studios to catch a legendary B2B of Jauz and Zeds Dead. That's not all, though, because there will also be plenty of other B2Bs throughout the night, such as TroyBoi and Herobust with a special guest, and Ghastly and Mija with a special guest. Your other option is hitting the incredible club Story, and seeing the fastest rising artist in electronic music: Marshmello.
This is Ultra's first day, so the daytime names aren't as jam-packed at Thursday, but there's still some great events! One to consider is at Nautilus Cabana Club, and that would be the Heartfeldt Pool Party, with tropical EDM artist Sam Feldt, Lost Kings, Shaun Frank, Hook n Sling, and more.
Ultra ends at 11 p.m., so the clubs will be your move! If you're looking to go cheap, Ghastly and Ookay are performing at The Hangar... but at the fabled Club LIV is none other than the god himself, Tiesto.
Day two of Ultra is packed, but there's no shortage of daytime scenes to hit. My recommendation is heading to Nikki Beach for No Sugar Added, where the stacked lineup consists of Jauz, Oliver Heldens, Mija, and an insane B2B of 3LAU and Audien, who are guaranteed to have you dancing all day long.
At night, you absolutely need to hit E11even Miami, where MAKJ and Slushii are opening for Zedd, for just $30. This is an absolute steal!
