The Ultra Music Festival (UMF) is coming back to Miami, and downtown is already prepping. It's hosted at Baymont Park, and over 150,000 people are expected to attend. This event sells out faster than it can be posted for sale, which means it must be the event of the season. This festival really pulls in the international crowd, and as such there's a certain cosmopolitan flair to the show and surrounding Miami area.
While security has had some issues before, assurances have been made that this year's event will be smooth and safe. That being said, we can't imagine not having a good time dancing around with over 100,000 people in March, instead of dealing with cold weather and rain where we live. Due to the massive crowds, we recommend booking early and stay nearby as there is going to be heavy traffic.

There are sister concerts all over the world, including those in Ibiza, Buenos Aires, Seoul, and Cape Town. The event will no longer admit minors, so be sure to bring your identification if you look under 30.
