We’re barely into 2010, and ahead of Coachella and Lollapalooza, we’re raring to go in America for a year of exciting music events, starting with a smokin’ hot electronica / dance music festival taking place in sunny Miami, Florida, 26-27 March. Ultra Music Festival has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception in 1999, winning ‘Best Music Event’ by the esteemed International Dance Music Awards in 2009, 2008, 2007 and 2005, ‘Best International Dance Music Festival’ by the Ibiza DJ Awards in 2008 and ‘Best Festival’ by the Village Voice Media New Times from 2006 to 2009.

This year’s killer line-up includes headliners Tiësto (pictured above) and deadmau5.

Tickets for this event are available now. Advance tickets for the 2-day event are US139.95 (approximately £87 at the time of this posting), and VIP tickets are US350.00 (approximately £217).
