Resident backlash erupts as draft of Ultra Music Fest’s Virginia Key agreement surfacesUltra Music Key Biscayne Resident Backlash

With their 18-year run in Miami’s downtown coming to a sudden end, Ultra Music Festival is in the process of moving its flagship three-day fest to Virginia Key — but it’s not all all palm trees and PLUR for the residents of neighboring Key Biscayne. A draft of the agreement in question has surfaced, and the island is rallying heavily in opposition to the proposed plan.

With the island only reachable via Ultra’s prospective new home, residents held an emergency meeting on November 5 to air concerns ranging from noise, environmental damage, unmanageable traffic, and more. From all accounts, this isn’t just an average neighborhood rabble — citizens have hired a PR firm for the fight ahead, and promise to mobilize and resist the agreement however possible. With the November 15 vote to secure Ultra’s new home fast approaching, the sudden pushback could spell trouble for the fest’s future digs.

Ultra releases rousing official 20th anniversary recapUltra Recap 1

Nearly six months after celebrating its landmark 20th anniversary, Ultra Miami has unveiled its exultant recap of the historic weekend surely no attendee has forgotten (at least not deliberately). The short picture boasts its seemingly endless stream of EDM hall of famers, including Tiësto, Steve Aoki, Oliver Heldens, and Dash Berlin: a mere fraction of the 2018 roster.

Inundated by glistening bikini bods, a thundering mass of pyrotechnics, and a kaleidoscopic sea of swirling artist emblems, the video may appear hyperbolic, albeit, only to those who have never had the chance to attend. The recap illustrates the round-the-clock celebratory nature of the fest, shifting from day to night with no loss of vigor, mirroring that of the perpetually enthused, perma-smile patrons. Additionally, those Ultra attendees brandish not only a full spectrum of artist memorabilia, but national flags from all ends of the universe, solidifying the festival’s overwhelming scope of attraction. Even Will Smith can be seen taking the sparkling city up on his eternal “Welcome To Miami.”

Ultra celebrated a monumental twentieth anniversary this past weekend. Organizers wrapped UMF’s birthday with several landmark wins — its acquisition of Winter Music Conference, a Swedish House Mafia reunion, and a long-fought promise to return to their beloved venue at Miami’s Bayfront Park.

Along with the weekend came a bevy of top industry taste maskers spotlighting the upcoming year’s most popular dance floor anthems in their sets.  Over the weekend, 1001tracklists.com compiled a list of the Top Ten most-played tracks at Ultra Music Festival. From singles one might expected to see from names like DrakeSkrillex, and GTA, a deeper listen into the list reveals some tracks that will surely surprise and delight.

In years past, the tracks dominating Ultra’s main stage were seen as a way to forecast which generic trends might be dominating the festival season cycle. The sheer diversity in this year’s compiled list displays a wider range of genre crossing, however, which speaks to dance music’s diversification of tastes and sounds.

Here are the top ten tracks most played tracks at Ultra 2018.


1. Drake – God’s Plan [OVO]


2. Gammer – The Drop [Monstercat]


3. 4B &TEEZ – Whistle [Premiere Class]


4. 4B & Aazar – Pop Dat [FREE]


5. Valentino Kahn – Lick It [Spinnin’]


6. GTA ft. DJ Funk – Booty Bounce (GTA Hyprr Mix) [Free/Mad Decent]

[BREAKING – STREAM NOW] The wait is finally over – Swedish House Mafia have taken the stage at Ultra

Swedish House Mafia

 

Dance music fans and pundits have spent the past few weeks in anxious agony as rumors of Swedish House Mafia‘s fabled return to close Ultra on Sunday swirled around the the internet. Speculations began arising as to who the “surprise special guests” would be shortly after Ultra Miami announced its lineup, reaching fever pitch after a series of events including a mysterious social media update and a cryptic confession from a lighting technician all but validated the rumors for those tracking the case.

Those refusing to believe anyone aside from the iconic trio would be chosen as the festival’s 20th anniversary closers can sit back in vindicated contentment, as Steve Angello, Axwell, and Ingrosso have just set foot on the main stage in a dramatic fashion to take the decks as “One.” A palpable wave of emotion can be felt through the stream, even, as the reunited legends began their “surprise” set with a dynamic array of visuals, ethereal hints of familiar vocals, bursts of synth roars, and finally, their crowd-favorite single “Miami To Ibiza.” A joyous moment has been marked in dance history, indeed.

Per a Tweet from FPIA, the outfit will have debuted three new SHM productions by the time their set is done. Now the question remains: Will Swedish House Mafia’s reunion be a one-off event, or will their “One Last Tour” cease to be with the announcement of a new slew of gigs? We’ll be watching the dance space heavily to find out.

DJ Mag Germany alleges ‘official confirmation’ of SHM’s surprise Ultra reunion

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Swedish House Mafia‘s surprise Ultra reunion after five years of retirement has more or less equated to Daft Punk levels of fervor over the past couple weeks since a series of seemingly innocuous, yet mysterious events have hinted at their return.

Steve Angello and his team have repeatedly denied these rumors, as have others connected to the outfit. However, curious and hopeful fans have refused to give up their suspicion. A prominent lighting technician dropped what appeared to be a hint in a now-deleted social media post, while Hardwell posted his two cents right before Ultra commenced. Now, DJ Mag Germany is claiming in an ‘exclusive’ newsbreak that the news has been ‘officially confirmed’ to them that the supergroup will indeed be the festival’s Sunday closers. Their information, they allege, comes from the “DJ Mag Germany team on-site from the closest circle of the Swedish House Mafia.”

This new information is certainly exciting to hear, but no one will know for sure what the deal is on the iconic trio’s reunion until ten o’clock on Sunday, March 25, when the festival reaches its final hour.
