Ultra is wasting no time getting you excited for next year's festival. Seconds after the final firework of the night exploded, the Main Stage flashed three dates: March 24, 25, and 26, 2017.
Ultra ended its three-day run tonight with a standout performance by Pendulum. Though there were no major celebrity cameos like last year (Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Usher, and more), it was hard to feel disappointed watching Pendulum perform its first live show in years.
Overall, Ultra ran smoothly this year from the top down. Getting in and out was quick. The stage production was impressive, as always. We'll have more complete reviews tomorrow, but it's hard not to see the 18th Ultra Music Festival as a success. Though folks over at the Miami Herald
say dance music is slowing down, it certainly looked anything but slow this weekend. It will be interesting to see if that changes in 2017.
