WARSAW, Poland – After 14 years of total success in Miami, the Ultra Music Festival is coming to Europe. Last year, 150 000 people attended this huge event, headlined by mega stars such as David Guetta, Tiesto, and many others.
The popularity of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) is at an all-time global high with DJ’s being considered today’s rock stars. Over the past years, the genre has established itself as the strongest one out there, with DJ’s such as David Guetta, Tiesto, Avicii and Swedish House Mafia and being on top of the charts Worldwide. Even the music industry itself has started to accept EDM, which became obvious at this year’s Grammies where multiple DJ’s were nominated, live performances by David Guetta and Deadmaus5 and with Skrillex winning three out of the five Grammies he was nominated for.
The Ultra Music Festival has over the years become the #1 festival in the world for EDM, with an attendance of 150 000 visitors coming to Miami to take part of what is known as the biggest party on the planet. This year’s Miami festival, to be held in March, sold out in record time with sell-outs in all of the previous years. The festival now takes the step further to become a worldwide concept, with it’s presence on four (4) continents – North America, South America, Europe and Asia.
– Warsaw has an incredible strong dance music scene. Added to that, its strategic location leaves it surrounded by no less than 21 countries within a radius of 1 000 km. This is Poland’s chance to play host to much more then Euro 2012, says Lars Holmgren, VP marketing of UMF Europe, the company organizing the event.
The UMF Poland will be held on July 13-14 at the Sluzeviec Hippodrome, Warsaw, and is expected to be the biggest dance event ever in the country and the region. More than 100 DJ’s and artists will be performing on the festival’s six different stages. In the first phase lineup, several top acts are already confirmed, such as Avicii, Tiesto, Carl Cox & Friends and with many more to come.
