The three-day event, which launched in 1999 as Ultra Beach Music Festival during Winter Music Conference, has become the “it” destination for dance music fans from all over North America, as well as the globe. It has truly been a treat to watch the evolution of Ultra over the years. From launching as an 11-hour rave on Miami Beach in ’99 to now celebrating its 20-year anniversary with special editions of the festival taking place all over the planet, Ultra is a dance music mainstay that’s morphed with the times.
For all its Hollywood glitz and glamour and bottle service bullshit, Los Angeles still lays claim to a thriving underground bass scene today. You can thank 12th Planet for that.
