Ultra Continues To Age Beautifully As 20th Anniversary Shines Bright: Review

This post was originally published on this site

Not many electronic events have been around for as long as Ultra Music Festival. Continuing any event for 20 years is a true achievement and to see how Ultra has grown into the international monster it has become today only further demonstrates just how brilliant the festival has been over the years. The 20th anniversary

Miami Music Week in a nutshell: capturing the ridiculousness beneath the glamour

This post was originally published on this site

Mainstage-Ultra-Music-Festival-2018

Miami Music Week — the largest dance music industry event in America, and the world. In addition to the Winter Music Conference, which takes place that week, a plethora of outside club events dominate the city that culminate into Ultra Music Festival at its end. 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the festival, making for an even more energized atmosphere surrounding it.

Its enormous popularity among fans, industry professionals, and artists alike translates to an enormous invasion of the city, and thus an even crazier unfolding of developments. Surge prices for ride share services and taxis are near-unfathomable, drink prices are egregious, and ATM fees are shockingly high. Meanwhile, utter debauchery and chaos mean tense interactions between bouncers and patrons, wedding rings falling off celebrity’s hands, and of course, instances that in the past have included women talking to trees.

We compiled an array of images that captures moments like these, that show a deeper look beneath the glamour of Miami Music Week and Ultra Music Festival.

1. We hope you withdrew cash ahead of time….

Jackmaster discovered ATM fees at the small club Treehouse were set at $36. The fee was so high that he had to document it through Instagram, appropriately quipping, “Some cunt is having a laugh.” Note to self: withdraw copious amounts of cash prior to going out for the night, or else…

2. Same goes for buying alcohol

Either the drink needs to have at least 4 shots, or it’s best to get toasted enough to last the whole event.

3. A test in supply & demand

Not planning on drinking? You’ll at least need water to remain safely hydrated in the warm outdoor weather. Humane ideologies be damned — vendors throughout the week are putting necessity and capitalism to the test by charging upwards of $15 for a bottle of water at each event. Perhaps the hot new liquid to hide in a flask is H2O.

4. Not today, lawsuits!

This venue wasn’t playing around when it came to hosting an Axtone pool party. The question is, what can you bring?

5. That awkward moment when…

6. When the alcohol hits early

Pacing is the key to day-drinking, young Padawan.

8. One thing to save money on: food

Plus side: food poisoning is potentially the new leading cause of seeking medical assistance at the music festival? Put that in your pipe and smoke it, media.

Why the odd camera angles? Error? Technical difficulty? Was it all fake after all? Who knows…

The Most Played Tracks at Ultra 2018 Have Been Revealed

This post was originally published on this site

One thing that I took away from watching the Ultra live stream this year was that the sets were extremely diverse. In years past, we have seen heavy bass influence in the festival and that theme remained constant. However, the feeling this year was that there was a much wider range of genre crossing within

Paris Hilton loses engagement ring during Above & Beyond’s ‘Common Ground’ Miami show

This post was originally published on this site

Celebrity Sightings in New York City - February 13, 2018

Above & Beyond’s emotive brand of dance music is that which demands many ‘hands in the air’ moments of joy during their shows. It turns out these moments are so intense for some that they end up losing valuable possessions — specifically, their wedding rings.

Such a an ironically tragic incident befell Paris Hilton on Friday night, March 23, during the trance trio’s Common Ground Miami tour stop. During the early morning hours in a bout of ecstatic dancing, the heiress’ 20-carat engagement ring reportedly flew off her finger and into the surrounding chaos, according to witnesses. Panic immediately ensued, with Hilton’s fiancé leading security officers in a search for the valuable bauble. They found it at the bottom of an ice bucket two tables down.

While the neither the couples’ camps nor the venue have been reached for comment as of writing time, Above & Beyond themselves confirmed the incident via a well-wishing Tweet hours later. Jono Grant also posted a picture of himself, Paavo, and Hilton after the show.
