Ultra Music Festival shares second episode in ’20 Years of Ultra’ documentary series [Watch]
The second episode explores the dance culture of the early 2000s, the “growing pains and challenges” associated with electronic culture’s then rapid expansion, and Ultra Music Festival’s impact in the context of dance culture, given the festival’s ability to consistently bring electronic and live groups together. Despite other cities’ struggles to legally host large scale electronic events, Miami emerged as a choice destination for electronic activity during 2003 and 2004, years credited as “turning points” for electronic music and festival culture in America. Miami has since maintained the premium it placed on electronic events in the early 2000s, and is accordingly preparing to celebrate the milestone birthday of its electronic cornerstone, Ultra Music Festival, from March 23-25.
