Ever gone to a festival unprepared and then regret going to festival in the first place? This year that will not happen, thanks to the lovely writers at EDM Sauce we put together this wonderful survival guide to make your experience even more better. If you are a first timer going to Ultra, or just going to Miami Music Week, and want to go to Ultra Music Festival for a day just to see the Resistance Stage, or your favorite artist this is a MUST READ!!
As a five year veteran and Ultra was the first Festival that got this girl started in the dance music scene there a few key tips that you should know about before entering Miami’s greatest event. Last year a best friend went to her first Ultra Music Festival she was dressed in all rave entire she looked part. Only to know she was not prepared, she was wearing flip-flops, no bag, no external cell charger, she has fair skin (no sunscreen), the only important thing she brought were sunglasses. Let this be a survival guide for all festivals in the future.
Security at every festival is tight but at Ultra Music Festival, security has extra high volume due to the breach that happened two years ago and the fact that the festival is in the heart of downtown Miami. You must have Clear See-through Bag — Security will not let you inside if it is not. You can bring a Fanny Pack as well, that is allowed. Ultra is held at the Bayfront Park, there is A LOT of walking and LOTS of dancing so you MUST wear Comfy Sneakers that are worth getting dirty. Its the sunshine state so bring sunscreen and sunglasses! Get to know the festival grounds, and plan a meeting spot, just in case you and your group get separated. With an incredible sound system and the Resistance Stage coming to Ultra Miami for the fist ever in Ultra history we suggest you bring Earplugs, you don’t want to go def by the you are 30 years old. If you want to capture the magic, the memory on your takes up a lot of the battery so bring an external charger and a Selfie Stick! Its cash only at the bars, bring cash and a debit/credit cards. DO NO forget your ID — Its an 18+ event security will not let you inside the festival even if you have a ticket. If you smoke cigarettes we advise you buy and bring an UNOPENED pack of cigarettes, DO NOT bring in open cigarettes into the festival security will make you throw them away. People who are bringing in camelbacks, be sure to have your Camelback empty or else security will make you dump out whatever you have inside. People who are not bringing camelbacks we advise you to buy one bottle of water and hold on to it because waters cost $5.00 a bottle at Ultra. For the ladies bring unopened tampons, we know the porter potties are disgusting but bring baby wipes because there is hardly any toilet paper in the stalls. These tips may seem funny and silly, however it will help you in the long run and at future events as well.
Ultra Music Festival is the start of festival season its where DJs showcase their new music. Ultra Music Festival is the place where fans get to hear and get to experience all the new music that is why Ultra is so special.
MOST OF ALL, GO WITH A GREAT GROUP OF FRIENDS DON’T FORGET…
