Miami 2016 Electronic Dance Ultra Music Festival Kicks Off Tonight… Bring Your Glow Sticks!

Miami is buzzing with the sold out Ultra Dance Music festival that will run from Friday through Sunday. Performers will include Martin Garrix, Miike Snow, Kaskade, Armin Van Buuren, DJ Snake and Tycho among several others. There has been rumors that world famous Deadmau5 will be making an appearance as well and we can confirm through our spies that he will in fact be included in the mayhem for over 2hrs playing a black metal mix!

Miami authorities have been preparing for this festival for over a month including police drug operations, that are said to be placing implants throughout the concert to “try and catch any crime before it happens.” They go on to say: “There will also be a fully staffed medical center set up on the North side for any medical issues that may arise. We understand what this concert means and just want to make sure people have a good safe time.”

If you are there be careful and have an awesome time. If you could not make it you can still watch all the acts live by clicking here.

Here is a little video talking about the great times!

I have been in the entertainment reporting niche since 1996, writing for several high profile sites like AOL, Huffington Post, Popeater, E!, The Verge and many more. Now I am one of the head editors for Showbiz Spy. I do miss my people on the East and West coast, but I am also very proud now to call WICHITA my home base!
