With spring coming closer and closer, there is no better way to celebrate the start of festival season than at Ultra Music Festival 2020! This year, Ultra will be back at Bayfront Park after the festival took place at a new venue last year. Bayfront Park is Ultra’s most iconic venues for the festival. Although it'll be back at the old venue, I'm willing to bet there will be some new surprises for the festival!
Phase 2 of the Ultra lineup just dropped and there are tons of b2b sets, something that Ultra hasn’t done before. Some of the crazy b2bs include Slander b2b Kayzo, Jamie Jone with Carl Cox and The Martinez Brothers, 4B b2b Saymyname, Matisse & Sadko b2b DubVision and many more. You definitely don’t want to miss any of these unique back to backs!
Phase 2 of the Ultra Lineup 2020
In addition to the b2bs, there are many other great artists that are featured on the Ultra lineup. Some other sets that you can’t miss include Gareth Emery’s Laserface, Gesaffelstein, Madeon’s Good Faith tour, Kygo (with a special tribute to Avicii), Gryffin, the return of Dash Berlin, and many more!
Ultra is also bringing many unique branded stages, such as a Gud Vibrations stage, Revealed Recording label stage, Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS label, Armin Van Buuren’s - A State of Trance, and the amazing techno stage by Resistance, which will feature 3 days of techno for the first time at the Megastructure!
With the venue back at Bayfront Park, this means the festival is back in the heart of Miami! This venue was one of my favorite parts of the festival back in 2018 when I attended; while dancing at Mainstage, you could see the skyline of Miami in the back. Also, with Miami Music Week going on at the same time, it’s super convenient to get around Miami to hit up the after parties and day parties!
Another part of Ultra that I love is how mindblowing the stages are. The Worldwide Stage has the 180-degree stage that is super unique and has crazy visuals there.

The mainstage is also massive and feels unreal. Watching many live sets on YouTube was what I was expecting for the stage, but it is crazier in person and surpassed my expectations.
One of my favorite stages out of any festival has to be the Megastructure at Ultra. It is one of the biggest domes I’ve seen, and the production there is so incredible. There are many lights and lasers as well as moving panels that it feels like you’re transported to a different world!

The production at Ultra is unlike any other. It’s an experience I recommend to any festival lover, especially those who love house, techno and trance. They’ve even added many more bass artists along with unique b2bs so bassheads will definitely enjoy this festival as well!
For those who want to check out some sets of the artists on the lineup, here are links to 5 artists that I'm looking forward to seeing!
There is still one more phase of the lineup that will be dropping later this year, which means an even more stacked lineup. You do not want to miss the return of Ultra to Bayfront Park! Tickets are available still here!
Wondering what to wear to Ultra? The most important thing to consider when choosing your Ultra outfits is to make sure you can dance all day and night comfortably. It’s definitely a music-heavy festival so you’ll most likely be on your feet most of the time. Check out these styles for some fabulous rave outfits inspiration.
