Countdown to Ultra Music Festival-9 DAYS!
As our mission statement says we are dedicated to bringing you everything that is EDM. Ultra Music Festival is one of the premiere events to experience electronic music. It will be taking place from March 25-27th at Bicentennial Park. Both Jake and I covered the event last year, reporting for those unfortunate enough to take their talents to South Beach. For the second year in a row, SOMS will be covering UMF. It’s hard work, but somebody’s gotta do it.
This is the first post of our new daily series we’re calling “Countdown to the Completely Sold out Ultra Music Festival.” Each day we will cover some of the world’s biggest producers, breakthrough young guns, and trending hot shots. Now, let us begin with….
This Swede’s monumental rise to fame within the last year makes him an excellent choice to start off our countdown to Ultra. At only 21 years he has demonstrated his insane ability as a remixer, DJ, and producer. His singles such as “Ryú”, “Seek Bromance”, and “My Feelings for You” have helped catapult him to the top of many EDM fans radars.
No one at SOMS has ever seen Avicii although we have had the opportunity at Electric Daisy Carnival this summer. (I know we are fools, but we all make mistakes right?) Fortunately, Ultra 13 will afford us numerous opportunities to hear his swedish house sound. Although no set times have been confirmed we know he will be playing at least three sets over the weekend at Ultra. Avicii will be finishing out the night on the UMF Korea stage on Friday 26th. The following day he will play two sets. The first will be mid day on the Ultra Main Stage and then he will finish out the night inside the Heineken Dome. Finally, on Sunday he will be performing at the official Ultra after party at Mansion Nightclub.
I can tell you right now with 100% certainty we will be in attendance at one of his shows. Avicii is one of the artists this year that we refuse to miss. The hardest part will be deciding which performance to see. Each stage will definitely give each of his performances a different atmosphere and mood. The Main Stage during the day will be a great opportunity for him to unleash some of his signature big house sounds. While the Heineken Dome will offer a much more intimate concert experience. The UMF Korea stage is somewhat of a mystery because it is new to the festival this year. The information on Ultra’s site promotes it as an immense wall of cutting edge visuals with a massive sound system.
However you look at it, Avicii is blowing up, FAST! The only way to stop this Swedish Sequoia like superstar from “TIMBERG!!”-ing on top of your is to get out of his way. If Avicii was a tree and he fell, you’d bet your ass that someone would be around to hear it, and yes, it would make a noise. A noise so great, so uplifting and euphoric, that it would knock some sanity into Charlie Sheen himself. Enjoy the tunes.
