An estimated 55,000 people attended the sold-out, 3-day Ultra Music Festival in Miami this past weekend. Not even rain could keep our spirits or hands down.
Before we highlight our favorite performances and moments, relive the experience with Vibedration’s Ultra Music Festival 2017 recap video:
Ultra 2017 Playlists
If there is one thing Ultra knows, it is how to bring the industry’s best performers and DJs together across 7 stages and make people dance. There was so much good music that we have to share some of our favorites with you.
Straight up fire. And no, we’re not talking about the 50 foot, 20 ton metal Arcadia Spider. Ultra’s main stage heated up between Alesso’s and Martin Garrix’s set when Kygo surprised the audience. If you missed Garrix’s set that’s probably because you were turning up at the Worldwide Stage to Adventure Club. Regardless of where you found yourself on Day 1, you can listen to every set below.
Our personal favorites from include Afrojack’s set, Steve Aoki’s performance with 2Chainz and Aoki’s new collaboration with Atlanta-based hip hop group Migos. The Prodigy was lit. We also liked Axwell & Ingrosso. Everyone went crazy when they ended their set saying “We need to get warm so we’re going to make the sun shine” and went into “Sun is Shining” (listen below at 54:25).
After 2 days of heavy electronic dance music and intense rain you would think the energy would be lower, but not a chance. Maybe at other festivals, but when you have headliners like Hardwell, NGHTMRE, and DJ Snake throwing down banger after banger you can’t help but throw your hands up and keep the vibes going.
Cool Rave Outfits
Vibedration was started to promote self expression. As Music festival culture and rave fashion trends evolve we are continually inspired to design hydration backpacks to match your personality and style.
Even with the untraditionally rainy south Florida weather we were impressed by the crowd’s commitment to express themselves. Although the sun wasn’t out as much as we liked, the rave booty was and that put a smile on everybody’s face. We were so stoked to see many festival attendees wearing Vibedration packs.
