Ultra music festival

By Rebeka Silva

Ultra Music Festival beats are still thumping in my veins.

The turnout for the two-day festival that exploded on March 26-27 beat all records from previous years; the crowd had never been so thick at the Bicentennial Park on a Friday, and Saturday tickets were sold out for last minute orbiters, the first time in Ultra history.

The headliners consisted of David Guetta who performed with Will.I.Am on Friday and Deadmau5 on Saturday.

Yeah, the headliners were great, but this year, up and coming DJs won over fans at Ultra.

Frida afternoon Afrojack made the ground shake as he hyped the crowd into a jumping wave while Dirty South had the entire crowd yelling for more, literally.

Saturday was a 12-hour event with house music that took control of your feet booming at every corner of the park.

Diplo got the crowd started with an amazing hour and a half set, followed by Steve Aoki on the same stage.

Aoki’s performance included his own heavy metal vocals to the house beats and a dive into the crowd as a finale.

Bloody Beet Roots topped Aoki when they had Tommy Lee play the drums to their songs.

This year’s Ultra had the most variety among those in the crowd than any other year, but I’m not just talking about the crazy and weird costumes.

There were college students, high school students, but there were also a lot more adults than previous years. I even saw a 12-year-old boy who was always on his father’s shoulders pumping his fist like a guido to the music at all the major stages.

Ultra conquered all in 2010.
