2011 Music Festivals: Ultra Music Festival

If there is one music festival to attend this year, Ultra is it. There are few events like it in the world- almost every top electronic DJ will be there. With five different stages, and headliners like Tiesto, Deadmau5, David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Carl Cox, Moby, Kaskade, Laidback Luke, and many others, this year's show is sure to be one of the best festivals of the year. The party goes from March 25th-27th in Miami, and you can check out the full lineup here.

However, the one drawback of this year's show is that it is not happening the same week as Winter Music Conference. In the past, WMC worked in conjunction with Ultra so when ultra was over, WMC would host various DJs at clubs such as Mansion, Liv, and Space, among others. Some DJs have voiced their displeasure about this, most notably Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastien Ingrosso, a.k.a Swedish House Mafia. Rather than play at Ultra this year, they've decided to host their own 12-hour long show called the Masquerade Motel, alongside Calvin Harris, Duck Sauce (A-Trak & Armand Van Helden), Dirty South, Pete Tong, Max Vangeli, and an21. It's sure to be an incredible experience, and the mafia never fails to entertain.
