The world’s premier electronic music celebration returns to its rightful grounds at Bayfront Park when Ultra Music Festival touches down March 25-27, 2022. What began more than 20 years ago as a “little concert on the beach” has grown into one of the largest musical celebrations on the planet, drawing electronic music’s biggest names to the shores of Biscayne Bay. Set against the glittering backdrop of Downtown Miami, Ultra has become a showcase for DJs and producers where you’re likely to hear breakout hits from big name artists performed in-person for the first time.

Tips for Attending Ultra Music Festival

  • Traffic and parking near the festival can be challenging. Public transportation is highly recommended, as surge pricing and ride shortages with Uber and Lyft can create long waits and higher costs.
  • Consider staying at a hotel near Downtown Miami or Brickell. Walking to and from the festival is the easiest way to get there – and avoiding transportation hassles is worth the premium.
  • Remember that Ultra is an outdoor festival, which means it can get pretty warm during the day. Bring a refillable water bottle and fill it at the numerous stations around the festival. Also, make sure your festival attire is light and breathable. Wear sunscreen.
  • There will be plenty to eat inside, as well as numerous bars. Keep hydration in mind if you’re consuming alcohol.
  • Ultra has an app that will keep you apprised of who’s playing when and provide any important announcements regarding schedule changes.
