Attending the Festival

The festival is an intense 3-day musical experience, and it will be unlike anything you have experienced. Among one of the more important aspects of enjoying and attending the event is taking care of yourself – such as wearing comfortable shoes and clothing, staying hydrated since Miami is hot and humid and making sure to note where medical staff is available in case you or someone you know has a medical issue.

There are particular measures to attending the event and you should pay close attention because this information may dramatically improve your experience.

    • Take note of what items are allowed and are not allowed into the event. Some prohibited items are obvious (no weapons, no illegal drugs, etc.) but some are less obvious. For example, event organizers do not allow normal backpacks that are not made of clear material (plastic, PVC, mesh). A full list of prohibited items, which may be updated based on new circumstances, issues, technologies and problems that may arise, can be found here and the bag policy can be found here.
    • The event organizers provide free water available at the festival. The various water stations will fill your hydration pack or water bottle (which will be purchased at the event).
    • Pace yourself. Many attendees think they will have energy to dance all day at the event and go to after parties each night. Only a tiny percentage of people do this. Don’t leave yourself too tired to enjoy the event on the second and third days. Respect your body.
    • You won’t be able to re-enter the event. If you enter then leave, you will not be able to enter again until the following day. Don’t worry, everything you need can be found inside.

    It’s never too late to experience your first Ultra Music Festival. For a glimpse of what to expect, enjoy last year’s aftermovie and we hope to see you this March!
