Fresh off the heat of their brand new single, “Kills You Slowly”, The Chainsmokers have been paving their musical trajectory into the indie-pop landscape, a contrast from the energetic bursts of EDM melodies and mainstage anthems that they initially pursued.

The two, Alex Taggart and Andrew Pall have stirred commotion with news of an upcoming album, in addition to a jam-packed summer season of performing at club residencies and music festivals. Now heading into one of their biggest performances of the year, the duo are slated to close out the Ultra Music Festival mainstage on Sunday March 31.

Ultra Music Festival has grown to be one of the largest electronic music festivals in the world, making the city of Miami a temporary home for the thousands of individuals that come flocking into the city. After the first day of the festival at their brand new location on the Virginia Key, festival-goers weren’t the only ones that had a lot to say about their experience thus far. Upon the festival’s main stage was KFC’s mascot, Colonel Sanders, who held a five-minute slot amidst the afternoon. Though the festival was characterized by a number of memorable artist sets, the promotional tactic was criticized by a number of artists, including Louis The Child and Alison Wonderland.

Speaking on the issue, the artists note that Ultra holds one of the most impactful platforms in the electronic music scene, and their stages should support hardworking, talented artists that work for the opportunity to perform at these events. Between the chaotic transportation issues at the end of night one that left thousands of attendees to make the hour long trek to the mainland, it looks like Ultra is just getting started.

Martin Garrix surprise releases Ultra intro, ‘Mistaken’ with Alex ArisMartin Garri Dryo

Ultra Miami has always been a special event for Martin Garrix. The crossover wunderkind’s gigs at the mega-festival involve unveiling multiple new IDs and more, making for a memorable affair each time. After having to miss the 2018 iteration, he ensured his return to the main stage would be particularly special.

Garrix fans received a gift in the form of a brand new release minutes after his Ultra 2019 set began. His opening piece, an Matisse & Sadko and Alex Aris collaboration called “Mistaken,” landed on digital shelves with two different versions. The original, which harkens back to commercial house sounds of the early 2010s, is a slice of vocal euphoria that served as an effective opener for Garrix’ momentous returning set. Its accompanying club version errs a bit more toward the gritty side, but is equally nostalgia-influenced. Of his performance, the producer tweeted out his praise: “tonight was very special.”

Thousands of Ultra Music Festival attendees left stranded without transportation after first day

Thousands of Ultra Music Festival attendees left stranded without transportation after first dayUltra Virginia Key Statement 1

The first day of Ultra Music Festival had some obstacles to overcome its first day on the Virginia Key. After the festival was booted from their original location within Miami’s Brickell District, its controversial move to its new island home has received mixed reactions, with many concerned about the after-effects of the festival’s presence. With thousands of festival goers attempting to leave the island at the end of the night, attendees have taken to social media to blast the festival for the disorganization in leaving the venue.

Ultra had organized shuttle busses to transport attendees to and from the venue, however the island offers a singular route available to pedestrian traffic. Reports of an accident along the shuttle route has halted traffic upon the bridge, leaving attendees forced to walk over a mile to get to the mainland.

The festival has already come under hot water by local residents, fearing the colossal violations of noise by-laws and environmental degradation over time. Reported to be an approximate hour walk from the festival grounds to the mainland, attendees should be prepared ahead of time for the remaining festival dates.
