    for those who don't know, Ultra is not worth your money, but WMC definitely is

    I'm glad I made it to Ultra once. However, i do agree that you can have more fun at all of the events that surround it.

    Okay, so soon to be first timer to Miami and Ultra. What is the setup like and crowds? Anything like Coachella? Plus how does one get invited to WMC? I always figured this to be the SXSW of electronica and what is the price for the badges?

    Am I correct on any of this? And lastly is going to Ultra and experiencing it once worth the price tag? Ive loved the lineups every year but kept putting it off b/c I didn't have the coin for it but do now. Any responses will be much appreciated! ty

    Ultra is nothing like Coachella...
    2013 = Coverchella

    2011 = Perfectchella

    Not like Coachella at all, not even in the same universe. Its also nothing really like SXSW unless you do all the WMC stuff...but you asked about Ultra. So yea...change your expectations.

    Okay, well ty for the responses. I really didn't have much to compare to except for Coachella and acl type festivals. But nothing like either of those. Has anyone actually been to Ultra within recent years then or ever? If not anyone know any sites that be good to check out about Ultra? Thanks again, i just want to make an informed decision before i put down the $$ for early bird tix.

    not really sure what you are asking. but i went in 2012 and had a blast. Stayed in a condo in south beach and went to after parties every night. If i did it again, I would skip the festival during the day and go to all of the other events that are going on that weekend. These events will be announced closer to the event. All in all, I think I spent about $1k. But that excludes airfare because I used frequent flyer miles. If you are looking to get a credit card, get a southwest one and with the miles you get just from opeing the card and spending some money you will have airfare covered. (ofcourse, don't be an idiot with credit cards, that goes without saying.)

    does that help?

    So you didnt look up the Ultra 2013 thread? Just buy your tickets and go, let us know how it turns out. And nobody has ever been to ultra, like ever. The audience s a giant hologram.

    Much appreciated sir! That is more or less what I was looking for. Ive seen some reddit threads and looking at the layout of the fest, overall looks like a pretty badass time. I had been trying to get as much info as possible and just trying to convince myself to put down the money for it. Ive already decided too, thanx for the heads up on airline miles, getting those and looking for a place soon out there.

    well from the looks of it, there was a clusterfuck on the ticket front today. I think the site crashed for a couple of hours and then they went back on sale. procedded to run out immediately (this part was expected) and now tickets are 280 plus a 65 dollar fee. if you want some lolz, head to their fb page.

    Yeah Fuck this shit can't even get regular tickets and it's 400 now. when people can't even get through.I'm going to use the price of 2 tickets and go on a fucking vacation. It's funny how scout hub already has the tickets set around the same price as you have it now. 1st batch server crashed. Second batch couldn;t get through now regular to match scout hub.
    Fucking scout hub

    They had the $149 plus service charges that sold out in 1 second, the $274 plus service charges that sold out in 1 second now it's $399 plus service charges for GA 3 day ticket. So that's $399 + 90.05 services + 14.95 (for US shipping) = 504.95 (that's the basic GA 3 day pass) for a festival that basically has the same line up ever year (very similar to those jam band festivals in that respect) where most of the acts/artists aren't even really playing music. For me that seems like a sham, when the electronic music fad fades all these festivals will crumble into nothing. I can't wait for shuffling to go away....

    Oh yeah, I was up at 10:30 cst and proceeded to try and buy tickets at 12:00 cst and waited at my computer refreshing and checking there fb till 2:30 when they finally released a status update. Still unsure how I did it but at 3:30 I went in got my early bird special and checked the fuck out. Next thing I see when I go back to the home page is $274 tix and minutes later $399.00 wtf?! They need another method of getting tickets, I can't imagine going through this again next year.

    p.s and yes check there fb page, major hate goin on there.

    $504.95 after fees and shipping now! The shitstorm on their FB page is almost meme worthy.

    $504.95 is a lot to pay to see someone push a button to hear the song "Who" played 8000 different ways.

    which is so dumb that they did it in the first place if it wasn't sustainable...it just comes to show that Ultras ownership is only interested in money, which is fine and the point of a business but they are severely screwing over their loyal fan base.

    for sure.

    i can only imagine what would happen if coachella went back to one weekend. a fucking disaster at best.

    i wonder if ultra sold off servers they'd used for two weekends of ticket sales. these things are supposed to get better, not worse.

    I can only hope that if they play DP does what SHM did that one year and play their own thing rather than play Ultra and make their fans pay some crazy money.

    the funniest part is that Ultra has been bragging about this new Customer Satisfaction survey and how they are gonna use it to make things better and that they got new servers which would make buying tickets no problem...blah blah blah.

    sorry for the double post

    I'm not talking about the entire genre, just the rise in cool kid / hipster / general public acceptance of it that has it riding a wave of heightened popularity that's bound to settle down soon.

    And no matter what, shuffling has to go...
