15 Things I Learned at Ultra Music Festival 

1. Dog Blood is sick as furk  (dropped new birdy nam nam’s goin in remix)

2.  Deadmau5 will rape you, he gave a big ‘fuck you’ to DJs everywhere and Ultra playing just his own shit, dropping everything and walking off stage after sexually assaulting the crowd, repeatedly

3. Tiesto is now ratchet (he drops Carnage – Bang!) 

4. Do NOT steal Steve Akoi’s mic 

5. We are now in the age of iPad crowd surfing 

6. What ever Major Lazer asks the crowd to do, you do, no question (Harlem Shake, Take your shirts off, jump)

7. If your feet do not emit clouds of dust when you dance, step the fuck back

8. Performance enhancing drugs are unnecessary to have fun at Ultra

9. Getting Married at Ultra, yes, dry humping at Major Lazer, no

10. Nikki Williams can sing better than ANY trance, house vocalist out there (Live Fedde Le Grand Glowing)

11. Don’t let Afrojack keep jamming out for like 2 minutes after the music cuts off, he will throw the mic at you

12. #PrettyRavers are always welcome (Favs – 1 2 3 4 5)

13. Ultra is the only spot where hugging 30 wet shirtless guys during Armin’s set is acceptable, seriously no homo tho

14. Zedd is pretty in pink

14. if you dont have the ultra symbol somewhere either shaved (pic 1, 2, 3, 4) or drawn on  no one will know where you are

15. Colored contacts ( Pics 1 2) and high waist booty shorts are hot right now, even if the latter is horrible looking

:: Over All Review ::

Yes, Ultra’s all ages was showing towards the beginning of every day, yes there were sound problems with Krewella and Afrojack (just to name a few), yes there were only TWO free water refilling stations (not including the restroom faucet), yes Calvin Harris was replaced by Kaskade (shit happens, whatevs), and yes it was crazy packed to the point people were fainting cause it was so moist / hot, but Ultra is not your EDC which it seems a lot of people compare it to, UMF is and has always been more about bringing you talented artists with crazy surprises. Some of my favorite moments was when Nikki Williams came to sing ‘Glowing’ live on stage with Fedde Le Grand, Bassnectar dropping a Beatles remix, Major Lazor getting super sexy with Kenndey Jones latest trap remix sauvemente, pretty much all of Deadmau5 set, the whole experience that was SHM last performance (for me), and all those sexy raver girls.
