At the culmination of the biggest Winter Music Conference in 26 years is the Ultra Music Festival. This year's dance party, like every other year, features a lineup of pretty much every well-established EDM DJ in the industry.
The event, now in its 14th year, kicks off on Mar. 23 in Miami, FL, and has sold out for the third consecutive year.
More than 150,000 people will descend on Bayfront Park in downtown Miami for the event, as it features 24 stages built to last for three days of high energy performances.
Highlighting the 2012 Ultra Music Festival lineup are EDM heavyweights such as Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Skrillex, David Guetta, Laidback Luke and Steve Aoki.
As much as Ultra is a celebration of the major players in EDM music, it also serves as a platform for recently established DJs who are looking to elevate their status in the dance music scene. And as EDM fans know, if you're looking to make a statement somewhere, Ultra is the place to do it.
