Take a look into our experience at this year’s Ultra Music Festival.
Day 1’s line was RI-DIC-U-LOUS. We waited nearly 2 hours, most of which was spent at the (last) ticket line.
But we managed to have enough time to watch 3 sets.
Major Lazer took the award for best set of Day 1 with a killer island vibe rave.
Overcast and plenty of rain
Substantial amount of pouring rain fell as ravers rushed to their next set. We stood in piss smelling mud puddles for 4 hours. I swear my vans still smell after 2 washes.
165,000 attendees from over 60 countries.
We ran into a couple internet stars and got to sneak a photo with Twan Kuyper.
DJ Snake never fails. He welcomed Future to the mainstage who played his latest hit “Mask Off”.
A videographer approached me 5 minutes before DJ Snake’s set was going to end. He told me to move towards the center of the crowd so that he could record me while the firework finale goes off behind me. The only downside was that I wasn’t able to watch it. However, I will now have an amazing quality video of one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Follow me on Instagram to watch it once it’s posted.

Shout out to all the beautiful people we met during our trip and to Apple for making the iPhone 7 camera quality valuable. Tell us what your best Ultra moment was and who is in your top 3 sets.
