Best Music Festival - 2009
Ultra Music Festival
Once upon a time, Ultra was a one-day beach party, a rogue daytime rave coinciding with the annual Winter Music Conference. Some 11 years after its birth, though, it has morphed into a two-day, multistage extravaganza that long ago received the official WMC blessing; it's become an international destination on the festival circuit. Every important electronic act has played at Ultra, and many of the biggest names — such as Tiësto, Paul van Dyk, and Carl Cox — have made it basically a requisite annual gig. And with the live performance bookings of the past few years — the Cure, Bloc Party, Perry Farrell — Ultra's promoters have wisely helped expand the masses' notions of dance music. This year, an estimated 70,000-plus revelers attended. And can that many people be wrong about a good time?
I am beyond upset by the "best of Miami 2009", "best music festival". Your selection was the Ultra music festival. I am fine with your selection even if going there was my worst concert experience ever. The festival was an Ultra train wreck due to many unannounced cancelations and no assistance by the on-site staff. To put it simply i went there to see bloc party and there was no bloc party. Sooooo,what i am trying to say is please remove bloc party's name from your list of reasons why the ultra music festival is the "best of 2009" because they were not there at all. In short fuck the ultra music festival!!!!!
