If the colorful and magical land of Ultra Music Festival sits at the end of the rainbow, then perhaps the music is the gold, and the ravers? They're leprechauns. At least they were yesterday when the fest coincided with the second most costumey of holidays.
And if you've ever wondered what Saint Patrick's Day looks like at a rave, wonder no more. We've got plenty of photos of the green folks who swarmed downtown Miami. Here are 75 photos of those who channeled the energy of the rainbow and morphed into beat-freaking leprechauns.
