Everyone is beat-freaking the fuck out, trying to guess what the big announcement coming from Ultra HQ is gonna be.
The official teaser statement is all "We're gearing up to make global EDM history, and do something that NO electronic music festival has EVER done."
That's a lot of caps lock. So you know they're serious. But what could it possibly be? Good thing the YouTube community is hard at work, making predictions that, if not terribly ridiculous, are at least hysterically hopeful.
"HOW ABOUT 72 STRAIGHT HOURS?" -sdimagg
Impossible. The City of Miami would never let the music go all night long. Even though you think the MIA is "all party, all the time" ... There are still regular people who like to sleep, like, every couple of days.
"It's doing to be a free event this year!" -shodan zuniga
LAWLZ. Have you ever been to Ultra?
"Freeeeee molly to all" -waleed banjar
Making it officially the last Ultra Music Festival and largest one-time drug raid in the history of ever. Oh, and Madonna's gonna be there again!
"letting paris DJ" - detectivrish
We can only dream. She's literally our favorite DJ of all time.
"It would be awesome if ULTRA let's the fans pick the artists or set the line up 8)" - DjDeOro27
No, it wouldn't be awesome. That would be the world's biggest clusterfuck of "your-taste-in-music-sucks." Dear God, do not hand over control of the decks to the beat freaks.
"Daft Punk at Ultra" -teresavictoria06
Just because you say it every year, that doesn't make it any more likely it'll ever happen. We personally believe DP is too mainstream for an all-EDM festival. They need to play something like Coachella. Ravers don't get the DP.
"umf is gonna happen every day during WMC?!" - dominibellakoo
Um, excuse us, don't you mean Miami Music Week? 'Cause, like, Winter Music Conference is that thing that used to be cool until Ultra destroyed it. Anyway, a full-week of Ultra sounds like it might kill us.
"TWO WEEKENDS" - cvale27
This is actually more than likely the right answer.
"Acid in the beet" -teresavictoria06
This would make for a most interesting UMF experience, but highly unlikely.
