The Food of Ultra Music Festival 2010, Because You Can Only Eat So Many Drugs
A festivus for the restofus.
For those not into clicks, beeps, and bass, Ultra Music Festival was a two-day electronic dance music festival that brought a sold-out crowd of 75,000 ticket holders a day to Bicenntenial Park's festival grounds.
From 3 p.m. to midnight the throngs of hungry, dayglowed, bikini'd, shirtless, tattooed, and sunglassed masses converged on various food courts for everything from paella to pizza, burgers, corn dogs, fries, and even the famous Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog's Gastropod menu.
Bullfrog, who has catered Ultra the past four years, had a vendor tent in the general festival area for the crowd, and his Airstream Trailer kitchen in the private artist's lounge. From there, his team cooked walkup orders for DJs, dancers, and industry folk, and shuttled delivery orders to artist trailers on a high-speed golf cart. We ran into Bullfrog on his way to deliver sandwiches with Stupid Slaw to Nas. He also made an Ital feast with salmon for Damian Marley.
