Spring Break is right around the corner, and Ultra Music Festival will make its big return at Bayfront Park the 20-21-22 of March 2020 for its 22nd edition.
Launched in 1999, Ultra Music Festival first took place at Collins Park in Miami Beach for the first two editions before organizers relocated to Bayfront Park. Downtown Miami has been home to Ultra Music Festival for 19 years. A back-and-forth between organizers and the city following Ultra’s one-off event on Virginia Key ended with a decision to allow the festival to return to its iconic location. The logistic didn’t really work out on the Key last year, so it was best for the festival and for the city to renew the contract for Downtown Miami.
The festival is back with a stacked and exclusive lineup this year. In the past few days, Ultra Miami has teased the new addition of the Phase 2 lineup such as Kygo, that will play at the festival during the special sunset slot. Another exclusive and long-waited come back has been Madeon who will perform at Ultra for the first time in 7 years; he has announced recently that he will bring his new show of his latest album “Good Faith” at the LIVE stage. Electronic music legends such as Flume, Major Lazer, and Zedd will also bring an exclusive and electric live set to the festival.
Parisian House music gangster Malaa and grammy-nominated DJ Snake are making their back-to-back festival debut in their first announced collaborative set of the year. Another headlining exclusive performance will come from KSHMR, and will now reveal his KSHMR Presents Dharma experience for the first time ever. Loco Dice will once again command the decks at the RESISTANCE stage.
The lineup is really diverse this year and even features rising DJs from the new generation such as 1788-L, Perto, and Osrin + more.
