Did the task of figuring out how to get to and from Virginia Key this weekend seem like too much? Don't worry — Ultra Music Festival isn't going to leave the dance music fans who decided to stay home hanging.
The beloved Ultra Live stream returns this year, so fire up your laptop or TV streaming device, invite a couple of friends over, and pretend like you're at the festival from the comfort of your own home — minus the poor bathroom access. If you're the kind of dance music fan who turns up their nose at EDM, Ultra's Resistance brand has its own feed as well.
