Another year, another Ultra, another man-on-the-street video starring you, the EDM fest attendee.
You braved a lot to have a good time. You roared in the face of torrential downpour. You struggled (or maybe breezed) through heightened security. And you toiled for hours, putting on your sexiest and most vibrant rave costumes. So we at New Times figured you deserved a shout-out of your own, and we got up in your face with a camera to learn more about your personal experience.
Some of you wanted to see Tiësto and Martin Garrix. Some of you wanted to see Bassnectar and Die Antwoord. Some of you were dressed as Pokémon. Some of you were barely dressed at all. Some of you live right here in Miami. Some of you came from as far away as China. Some of you had tickets. Some of your didn’t. All of you were really nice.
On the way in, you had to dodge traffic, religious zealots, Taki street peddlers, and our own snooping reporters. Did we catch you on video? Don’t worry, darlings, you look fabulous.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
