There are two basic types of tickets— GA (General Admission) and VIP tickets. All tickets are for all 3 days of Ultra Music Festival. Single-day event tickets are NOT sold. GA tickets are what the vast majority of attendees purchase. Every ticket allows access to every single stage and area of the event other than a few select areas for VIP ticket-holders only. VIP tickets are a luxury option with enhanced amenities, such as separate viewing platforms.
Before the Purchase
Ticket sales begin far in advance of the event. Usually, there will be a limited sale of tickets early in the summer followed by a larger offering in the fall. Generally, the longer you wait to buy tickets, the more expensive they will be. Those who purchase tickets early sometimes pay as little as 50% as much as those who attempt to purchase at the last minute.
In order to have the option to purchase the lowest-cost tickets available, you must first sign up for Ultra Worldwide’s customer loyalty program, Ultra Passport. (Click Create My Account in the top right corner or download the official Ultra Worldwide app here to get started). The program rewards our most dedicated attendees for their attendance at Ultra Worldwide events, and provides them an opportunity to explore our many destinations. Once you create (and verify) your Ultra Passport account, you will be able to register for the lowest-cost tickets available for Ultra Music Festival with one easy click. Approximately 1-2 days before these tickets go on sale, you will receive an email with purchase instructions. Be sure to follow the instructions in the email carefully to avoid unnecessary delays when purchasing your ticket(s).
Ultra Passport holders with Platinum status will have exclusive, priority access to purchase tickets before anyone else. Following the Platinum sale, Ultra Passport holders with Gold status will have access to purchase tickets before Silver level buyers and the general public. Following the Gold sale, Ultra Passport holders with Silver status will have access to purchase tickets before the general public.
Buying Your Tickets
DO NOT BUY TICKETS FROM ANYWHERE OTHER THAN THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE: UltraMusicFestival.com. Any time you purchase tickets from a third party (like a friend, a ticket-reselling website, ticket broker, etc.), you risk getting scammed. We do not describe the specific methods scammers use because we do not want to give anyone ideas, but each year we deal with some disappointed fans who did not listen to this warning and are stuck outside the event gates with fake or invalid tickets. Please do not be one of them.
When you click the link to buy tickets from the official website you will be taken to the event’s official ticket retailer — Showclix. From there, it is a simple process to purchase your tickets, but there are a few things you should keep in mind:
- Tickets are not allowed to be shipped to any location other than the billing address of the card used to purchase the tickets, and you will NOT be able to change the shipping address after you make your purchase(s). This measure is for security purposes. Please make sure your billing address is set to the location where you want your tickets shipped BEFORE you attempt to purchase tickets. Usually this can be done online or by phone with your card provider.
- At checkout there will be additional charges for taxes, service fees and shipping depending on your location. These charges will be clearly indicated before you confirm your order total.
After the Purchase
Beginning this year, tickets will be loaded onto special non-removable, non-transferable wristbands for your convenience and security. Wristbands will be received in early March, as normal.
IMPORTANT: If a ticket package containing gifts is included with your purchase, there will be one package PER ORDER. If you order 2 tickets at once, you will receive only one package and one set of gifts. For most people this is not a big deal, but if you care about getting a set of gifts for every ticket, you must order each ticket separately and pay a shipping charge on each ticket. There is a limit on how many tickets can be purchased with a single credit card. Contact our Ticketing Department if you have any questions about this.
