Ultra Music Festival has just announced that tickets for its 2019 edition are on sale. The festival had limited sales earlier this year that gave fans an opportunity to buy tickets at the lowest price possible. However, beginning today, tickets will sell until they are gone or the date of the festival arrives — whichever comes first.
Tickets still come in various tiers depending upon how quickly you log onto ultramusicfestival.com. Registered fans will have an exclusive opportunity to purchase general admission at the current lowest price of $349.95; however, organizers warn a very limited quantity is available, so act fast. Otherwise, general-admission tickets start at $375.95 and will top out at $399.95.
For fans who can't swing the full amount, Ultra is offering a limited number on a payment plan. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you don't want to party with the unwashed masses (because Miami is still plenty warm in March), you can opt for the VIP experience for $1,499.95, which includes dedicated viewing and bar areas.
Ultra also released its 2018 "aftermovie" (shown at the top of this post). The 14-minute recap is enough to get fans hyped up for next year's show.
No acts have been announced, but Ultra has said it will use wristbands in 2019 instead of the standard holographic tickets used for some time. It's common for people to use a ticket one day and then sell it or give it to a friend to use another day. Wristbands would end that practice because they cannot be removed without being voided.
Ultra Music Festival 2019.Friday, March 29, through Sunday, March 31, 2019. Location to be announced. Tickets cost $379.95 to $1,499.95 via ultramusicfestival.com.
