Ultra is celebrating 20 marvelous years in 2018 — and the flagship music festival in Miami has a special way of commemorating the milestone!
Of course, the 20th installment of Ultra Miami will be one for the books. But with the event just over a month out, the #20YearsOfUltra movement is kicking off with an all new video series.
Episode 1 goes back in time to 1999, back when hearing EDM was rare, rave culture was brand new, and events like Ultra Miami only traveled by word-of-mouth. Kandi, glow sticks, and the word “Plur” were all used regularly. It was a completely different world than what it is nowadays.
OGs like Tiësto, John Digweed, Ferry Corsten and more remember what it was like in the early years of Ultra. Watch as they take us down memory lane to explore the birth of the Ultra Music Festival phenomenon!
