Ultra Expands to Its 19th Country, Brazil

"Ultra Music Festival" is a name you either love to hear or hate. Our music editor spent the better half of a weekend coming to terms with the event that all but overruns Miami every March. Others eagerly blow $300 on tickets plus a few bucks here and there for drinks, while some Miamians — especially those who live in the downtown area — choose to hibernate during the weekend, avoiding the mind-numbing traffic.

Since its genesis in 1999 Ultra Worldwide has spread around the world at an amazing pace, infecting party-goers from Seoul to Santiago. Eighteen countries have now played host to the festival who’s distribution takes it to places across the globe like Columbus and his crew to claim the New World. This year Ultra Worldwide announces its voyage to the ninetieth: Brazil.

2016 will be a busy year for the land of futebol and cachaça, Carnaval and capybaras. Just last year the country spent $11.5 billion to host the FIFA World Cup in Amazonian arenas. Next August will see the 31st Summer Olympians compete in Rio de Janeiro. And two months later, the wall of sound and dance known as Ultra will hit the already vibrant country.

Ultra hasn’t disclosed the dates or exact location of its Brazil event yet, other than it will take place in October 2016, but if you can't wait to find out, you can sign up for email updates via its website. In the meantime, with a plane ticket and a few vacation days, you can catch the event in South Africa this February or, of course, Miami this March. Tickets for Ultra Miami are on sale now and range in price from $324.95 to $1,249.95 plus fees.

Ultra Miami's lineup should be announced within the next two months, and the event will return once again to Bayfront Park.
