After the year-long experimentation at a new venue in Virginia Key, Ultra Music festival returns to its long-time home on Downtown Miamis Bayfront Park for its second consecutive year with promises of a three-day electrifying, electronic dance music party unlike any other. The Miami herald of electronic music draws a wide variety of musical talents, including:
*MCs (Live, Dance) – This is one of the most dynamic genres of dance music. DJs typically have their own radio show, radio program and other types of live music performances as well. DJs typically come from all over the world as they travel around the country performing for audiences of the dance music scene.
*EDM – This is the largest and fastest growing dance music genre. EDM or Electronic Dance Music has gained popularity because it is not just a means of entertaining music lovers. Many of the top names in EDM also create original music for their audiences.
*Rave Music – This is a form of rave which includes electronic beats, pounding bass, heavy breathing and more. The sound is similar to that of a party that is going on. Most ravers will have a DJ to help them groove out to their preferred tracks during the party. This form of music is generally seen as a group of people who enjoy a great time, dancing together, wearing their favorite attire and enjoying the music.
*Drum & Bass – Drum & bass is a style of bass music which incorporates many different sounds and is very fast-paced and energetic. This form of music was popularized by the producers and DJs of the infamous “drum and bass” sound.
*Space Dance – This form of electronic music festival takes place in nightclubs. Music performers take the stage in costumes and utilize instruments to make the music while moving about the stage. It may be a mixture of jazz, hip-hop, reggae or even classical music.
*Vibe Dance – This is another form of electronic music festival. It combines traditional and modern elements in an effort to create a sound which resembles the sounds created by live bands. It can be seen as a combination of the music performed at a club, jazz and reggae clubs, and the sound created at a country or folk music club. This form of music was originally created as a way to promote the Miami arts scene.
