It's a blast.
The Ultra Music Festival has once again brought its unmatched brand of musical mayhem to Miami. Last night (Friday), more than 100,000 party people gathered at downtown’s sprawling Bicentennial Park for the first day of the world’s biggest dance-music event, which is spread out over three days for the first time.
Name your favorite DJ act, and it’s probably on the Ultra bill: Carl Cox, Tiesto, Deadmau5, David Guetta, the Chemical Brothers, Sasha, Erick Morillo, Moby, Ferry Corsten, Armin van Buuren, Kaskade, Sander Kleinenberg, Benny Benassi, Afrojack — well, you get the idea. And Ultra isn't limiting itself to only DJ acts. One of last night's main-stage headliners was British ’80s new-wave icon Duran Duran, which helped usher in the MTV generation with videos for tunes such as Hungry Like the Wolf, Planet Earth and Rio.
