Thanks to the executive producer, president and chief executive officer Russel Faibisch, this upcoming Ultra Music Festival in Miami will at last be celebrating its 22nd edition. What started off as a mere 11-hour electronic dance music (EDM) festival on one of Miami’s South Beaches has now become one of the most globally recognized EDM labels talked about around the world. For more than 20 years now, the world’s most iconic DJs and producers have participated in supplying thousands of attendees with unparalleled top of the line production on top of some of the best EDM you can dance to.

Producing events in more than 20 countries, including Australia, Chile, Japan, India, South Africa and the United States, Ultra Worldwide or “Road To Ultra” has taken part in expanding their creative vision across the world. The combination of technological advancements in correlation with large-scale music productions mixed with the diverse range of talent has helped the overall expansion of Ultra Music Festival. Anticipation for this year’s event is at an all time high among fans that have been following this independent electronic music festival brand, and the finalized dates for Ultra Music Festival in Miami for 2022 have finally been announced.

The history of Ultra Music Festival

This annual outdoor beach music festival in Miami was inaugurated back in 1999, as an estimated 10,000 attendees showed up at Collins Park in Miami Beach for a one-day event that included artists like Armand Van Helden, Rabbit in the Moon, Dimitri, Josh Wink and more. As the festival continued to grow, so did its popularity among concertgoers that have been attending the event since day one.

Ultra eventually had to grow to three days and change venues to Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami because of high demand and how massive the crowds were getting. Organizers of the festival continued to bring the biggest names in the scene in the years following. Heavy hitters in the music industry like Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz helped bring about the energy that Ultra Music Festival is known for.

By 2013, in honor of Ultra’s 15th anniversary, the music festival in Miami was held over a span of two consecutive weekends. Attendees would get a chance to experience notable headliners across six full days of their choosing as well as encounter the “One Last Tour,” one of the last performances put out by globally renowned group Swedish House Mafia. Having a total of more than 300,000 spectators, Ultra Music Festival had become globally recognized, and what followed was a decision to expand Ultra Worldwide.

Thanks to Ultra Enterprises, the festival soon started visiting locations around the world. Road To Ultra made their debut in Seoul, Korea, and its success brought announcements of new events in Australia, Columbia, Hong Kong, India, Peru, Japan and many more.

Ultra Music Festival 2022

With COVID-19 taking its effect on popular festivals like Ultra Music Festival, event organizers decided to proceed with cancellation of the event that was tentatively scheduled for March 20-22, 2020. Because safety guidelines and health protocols prevented ticket holders from attending last year, thousands have been awaiting the finalized dates as well as the official lineup for this year to be announced.

With an approved request by the city of Miami, Ultra Music Festival has been pushed back to next year and is officially set for March 25-27, 2022. Despite the 2020 lineup having big headliners like Flume and Major Lazer, the Ultra Music Festival 2022 lineup is yet to be announced, but will most likely include the same top tier artists in the electronic dance scene.

Festival goers will be rekindled with Bayfront Park’s 32-acres along with a variety of different genres including: house, techno, dubstep, rap and more. Thanks to advancements in technology, the Ultra brands have pioneered the livestream experience with ULTRA LIVE (with over 2 billion views on livestream) and the audio broadcasting platform UMF Radio (syndicated to FM radio in over 62 countries). Although there’s a temporary hold on one of the most internationally renowned music festival brands in the world, with vaccinations being rolled out, people will soon be reunited with the love, energy and music Ultra Music Festival brings to the table.
