International Music Festivals
The Ultra Music Festival in Miami celebrated a blockbuster 13th year, and the success of this event has prompted its organizers to announce spin-off music festivals in other international hot spots, including Sydney, Australia and Seoul, South Korea. This builds on the success of festivals already taking place in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Ibiza, Spain as well.
The news was reported in the Kuwait Times, however a similar article in the Los Angeles Times did not mention plans for Sydney. Ultra is renowned for pulling together one of the biggest dance line-ups in the world, and drawing crowds in excess of 50,000 on each of its three days in 2011. Some of the most influential names in dance music were at the huge event, including Tiesto, Carl Cox, Deadmau5, The Chemical Brothers, Underworld and Armin van Buuren, along with live acts and DJs spread across six stages.
