Ultra is a post-apocalyptic
world where a bottle of water costs more than a gallon of gas, grass is scarce,
and everyone is fenced inside a city. Not only are there no responsibilities, there's no judgment, which means you can dress however the freak you want.
When you are under the influence of music, holding hands with
your best friend, and dancing your heels off, everything is permitted. The
only valid argument for your cartoon appearance is that it's simply fun.
At this past weekend's Ultra Music Fest at Bicentennial Park, we spotted plenty of neon, body painting, yarn dreads, tutus, platforms, happy faces, and fairy wings. Here are ten creative outfits we caught a glimpse of at this year's Ultra.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
