As the world’s most famous outdoor electronic music event, UMF has won “Best Music Event” by the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) from 2005 – 2010, “Best International Dance Music Festival” by the Ibiza DJ Awards in 2008 and “Best Festival” by the Village Voice Media New Times consecutively five years running from 2005 through 2009.
Originally created as a pure EDM (electronic dance music) festival in 1999, UMF has grown through the years to present not only the genre’s hottest, biggest and best headline artists (The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Tiësto, deadmau5, David Guetta, Underworld, Moby, Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox, Paul van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Erick Morillo, and Paul Oakenfold, to name a few), but also crossover headline bands that incorporate EDM elements in their music and have a history or new beginning in the EDM community and culture (The Cure, The Killers, The Black Eyed Peas, Santogold, The Ting Tings, The Bravery). In 2010, UMF was recognized as the fourth Top Grossing Concert by Pollstar’s mid-year issue and saw more than 100,000 attendees coming from 68 countries and territories and all 50 U.S. states and Puerto Rico. In addition to the annual Miami festival, UMF continues expanding internationally this year with UMF Ibiza and UMF Brasil in Sao Paulo on November 6. The sold-out festival featured Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox, Moby, Above & Beyond and more.Ultra Music Festival Line Up - 2013
