Ultra Music Festival is an annual outdoor electronic music festival that takes place during March in Miami, Florida, United States. The festival was founded in 1999 by Russell Faibisch and Alex Omes and is named after the 1997 Depeche Mode album, Ultra. It was first held on Miami Beach, but besides a tenure at Bicentennial Park, it had primarily been held at Bayfront Park in downtown Miami. It was a one-day festival from 1999 to 2006. In 2019, the festival moved to the Virginia Key Beach Park and Miami Marine Stadium, after being blocked from using Bayfront Park due to concerns over the impact of the festival on downtown residents.
