Ultra Music Festival is nothing without the music. Well, that and the thousands of attendees. But the people wouldn't come knockin' if the beat didn't stay rockin'.
That being said, the Ultra fest folks are working with the people at Ultra Records to bring you "what is guaranteed to be one of the biggest releases in EDM the year," according to UMF.
That's right, it's the Ultra soundtrack. And it's slated to hit digital stores Tuesday, March 19, smack-dab in between the two fest's two weekends.
What could be on it? Well, it's UMF, and they're all about making you feel special and loved. It's coming jam-packed with releases from some of your favorite Ultra artists, including four exclusive tracks from Tiësto and Quintino & Alvaro, Davide Rivaz and Benny Benassi, Afrojack, and Avicii.
These special songs are being collectively referred to as Ultra Music Festival Anthems, so get ready to hear them constantly.
Filling out the tracklist are Deadmau5 (who's always had a weird love-hate thing going on with UMF), David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Above & Beyond, Wolfgang Gartner, and others.
