Ultra Music Festival Announces 2015 Dates

Only about 72 hours have passed since the end of Ultra 2014.

And naturally, that means we should start immediately planning for next year's edition of the massive EDM festival.

The good news: As they've typically done in recent years, Ultra organizers have already provided us with the 2015 dates.

The bad news: It still doesn't look like the fest will be returning to the two-weekend format any time soon.

In 2013, Ultra expanded to six whole days, spanning the last two weekends in March. All tickets for the second weekend were quickly gone. But the first was slow to sell out.

So, for this year's fest, the organizers scaled back to the traditional three-day, one-weekend plan. Yet again, though, tickets were slow to sell out.

Meanwhile, there were more serious problems. Namely, the trampling of security guard Erica Mack by gatecrashers, which stirred local politicians like Mayor Tomás Regalado and City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff to call for Ultra to leave Miami.

So the real question for Ultra 2015 isn't when it will happen. But where.
