At Ultra 2013, it took organizers 17 minutes to announce the 2014 fest. The next year, it was a three-day wait. But today, with the 2015 edition of the fest still hours from finishing, the next set of dates has already been confirmed: Ultra 2016 will go down March 18 to 20.
What’s especially interesting is this stretch happens to be the month's second-to-last weekend. And Ultra has most often (though not always) taken place over the final Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in March. So does that mean Ultra is eyeing a return to the six-day, two-weekend format of 2013?
Nope. It seems not. As the festival’s reps explain: “Easter falls on March 27 and it’s been decided to schedule the dates for the previous weekend."
