    It's not worth it. I don't like the lineup, but even if I would, the UMF has around 10 stages for almost 200 djs which makes pretty much impossible to see more than 50 min-1 hour dj sets, unless somone has a special set but i doubt it.

    If you are going anyway, go the week before and check all the parties around the city for the Winter music Conference. Lots of parties with lots of amazing djs. Most of those parties are free or very cheap (well, if you want to see Paul van dyk in Space, it will be expensive obviously), and many of those djs won't play at the UMF. There are some amazing festivals the same weekend (Breaksfest or Future sound of breaks, if you are into breaks).

    The line-up does look pretty dope...and is certainly NOT only 1 genre...

    If I can convince my broke and unemployed friends to fly out to Miami with me, then I'm 100% there. Otherwise.... I dunno. Don't know anyone in Miami. Guess I better start "friending" up.

    I've done ultra before. I can only really afford one fest this year, and it's Coachella. If I wasn't going to coach i'd do Ultra, because the Langerado lineup this year blows.

    I'm going to Coachella and UMF this year! I allow myself 2 festivals a year and I did Coachella/Bonnaroo last year. The line up looks pretty freaking incredible for UMF! Both festivals are within a month of each other and there are going to be several repeat acts. I'm pretty excited to see how those sets compare.

    This. I never understand why people bother going all the way to Miami for UMF but don't go to any of the parties surrounding it.

    ok location is more lollapalooza-esque...which is cool but for me cuz i live here the novelty is gone...no art installations...grass/dirt which becomes nasty to walk through....water and food are more expensive, set times not released till last minute of last year (like when you walked in and got the program kind of last minute)...security is ok not in your face.
