The Ultra Music Festival isn't just a concert. It's now a week-long electronic and alternative musical free-for-all featuring the world's best talent and over 150,000 fans.
Sure, the big show is sold out. But in the Miami nightlife universe, the many satellite parties orbiting the main event may well surpass it in terms of debauchery, excess, and even musical awesomeness.
From Swedish House Mafia's One Night Stand to a yacht ride with M.A.N.D.Y, pool parties on South Beach, dubstep downtown, Danny Tenaglia at Space, and Oscar G.'s Nervous Records, we've got you covered.
Enjoy our comprehensive guide to all the parties surrounding the biggest, craziest, ultimate, most extreme Ultra Music Festival ever!
