As the weather gets warmer, ravers are gearing up for yet another festival season. One of the first big electronic music gatherings to kick off the spring is Ultra Music Festival, which will be held in Buenos Aires Feb. 20–21.
Ultra has been a rave staple for more than a decade, starting out as a one-day festival coinciding with the Winter Music Conference, the annual electronic music trade show that draws the top DJs from around the world to Miami. In the following years, Ultra experienced an increase in attendance, with figures reaching 100,000 by the end of the decade. Since then, Ultra expanded to cities around the world, in addition to featuring a diverse line-up of artists ranging from top headliners to local acts.
This year, Ultra will be stopping at Buenos Aires for two days with a star-studded line-up. Notable performances include Adam Beyer, who will be hosting his own Drumcode Stage, Axwell /\ Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia fame and Porter Robinson, who has been touring the United States for his Worlds show, and plans to introduce his immersive production at a festival for the first time.
