The Beach

Ultra Music Festival was founded in 1999 by business partners Russell Faibisch and Alex Omes. The first ever Ultra Music Festival was held as a one day event at the end of the Winter Music Conference in 1999 with performances by Rabbit in the Moon and DJ Baby Anne. The event was held on South Beach in Miami Beach, Florida, and was a major success. In March 2000 the festival returned to South Beach as a one day event, the festival was met with even more success and was renewed immediately for a third year.

Growth and expansion

Because of the massive rise in attendance between 1999 and 2000, festival coordinators decided to relocate to Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami for the third annual event. UMF continued to bring the biggest names in electronic dance music to Miami with performances by Tiesto, EC Twins, Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Sander Kleinenberg, Photek, Josh Wink, DJ Craze and Rabbit in the Moon from 2001 to 2005. With the record-breaking attendance of the seventh annual UMF in 2005 the festival was again relocated, strangely, to a smaller (by area) venue, Bicentennial Park (Miami), for 2006. In 2007, with Winter Music Conference in full swing, Ultra Music Festival held its first 2-day event at Bicentennial Park with a record breaking 50,000+ concert goers in attendance. Ultra Music Festival celebrated its 10th anniversary March 28–29, 2008 with performances by Tiesto, Underworld, Justice, Paul Van Dyk, Carl Cox, Armin Van Buuren, MSTRKRFT, Deadmau5, Annie Mac, Eric Prydz, Ferry Corsten, Calvin Harris, Moby, The Crystal Method, Boys Noize, Benny Benassi, David Guetta, Jes, Enur, Pete Tong, Jackal & Hyde and Rabbit in the Moon. With estimated attendance over 70,000, the festival set a new City of Miami record for number of tickets sold at a single event. The eleventh annual UMF occurred March 27–28, 2009, the lineup including more crossover acts and live bands like The Black Eyed Peas, The Prodigy, The Ting Tings, Santigold, Crystal Castles, The Whip, and Perry Farrell. The twelfth annual UMF took place March 26–27, 2010, with headlining performances by Tiesto and Deadmau5, as well as performances by David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, Orbital, Little Boots, Sasha & Digweed, Above and Beyond and The Bloody Beetroots. Each stage was accompanied with visual arts provided by VJs Vello Virkhaus, Psyberpixie, and Cozer. The festival sold out for the first time with over 100,000 attendees, where it was announced that the 13th annual event would take place over the course of three days in March 2011.
