Ultra Music Festival Style of Music
The Ultra Music Festival is primarily a celebration of electronic music, although the performers are not restricted to DJs. More than 300 DJs, bands, and other entertainers will perform on sixteen stages over the course of three days. The addition of the Carl Cox & Friends/ASOT 500 Structure and the brand new main stage have the grounds in better shape than ever for the 150,000 visitors who are expected to attend.
