"Ultra Music Festival" is a name you either love to hear or hate. Our music editor spent the better half of a weekend coming to terms with the event that all but overruns Miami every March.

Since its genesis in 1999 Ultra Worldwide has spread around the world at an amazing pace, infecting party-goers from Seoul to Santiago. Eighteen countries have now played host to the festival who’s distribution takes it to places across the globe like Columbus and his crew to claim the New World.

Ultra hasn’t disclosed the dates or exact location of its Brazil event yet, other than it will take place in October 2016, but if you can't wait to find out, you can sign up for email updates via its website. In the meantime, with a plane ticket and a few vacation days, you can catch the event in South Africa this February or, of course, Miami this March. Tickets for Ultra Miami are on sale now and range in price from $324.95 to $1,249.95 plus fees.
Ultra Miami's lineup should be announced within the next two months, and the event will return once again to Bayfront Park.
