After a two-year pandemic hiatus, Miami’s biggest electronic music festival returns to its longtime Downtown Miami home at Bayfront Park this March. The glorious neon cherry atop the giant rave cake that is Miami Music Week, Ultra is undoubtedly one of the city’s most iconic—and divisive—annual events, beckoning over 50,000 day-trippers and candy ravers from around the globe through its hallowed gates each day.

After a somewhat disastrous move to Virginia Key in 2019, organizers of the annual EDM bacchanal have since managed to strike a deal with the Downtown Neighbors Alliance to move the festival back to its decade-long perch along the bayfront. The new partnership with Downtown’s advocacy group for residents allows the festival to move forward in a way that showcases Miami and its culture as the dance music capital of the world.

Taking place March 25 through March 27, Ultra 2022 unleashes three days of international dance music, heart-rattling bass and mind-bending visuals from multiple stages, with Alesso, Armin van Buuren, Carl Cox, David Guetta and Tiesto making triumphant headlining returns, along with DJ Snake, Kygo, Nina Kraviz, Sofi Tukker, Tale of Us and dozens more. Ultra Music Festival also caps off Miami Music Week, a jam-packed series of concerts and parties that go down throughout Miami. So if you need a place to crash, be sure to book a room at one of the best hotels in Miami—they fill up fast.
