Ultra’s Second Weekend Lives!!!

Earlier this week the EDM community faced a possibly tragedy in the attempt of city of Miami Commission Chairman Marc Sarnoff attempting to cancel the festival’s second weekend. I am happy to report that this matter has been resolved as Ultra has agreed to address the chairman’s safety concerns and give the city $500,000 to add police and firemen to the two weekend festival.

It is safe to say that anyone planning to go to Miami for the second weekend can go ahead and buy their tickets without fear. Buy your tickets here.

Save Ultra’s Second Weekend!!!


Late last night I posted a lengthy post which included the unfortunate news about a city of Miami resolution ordering Ultra Music Festival to shut down its second weekend. This news we broke on our Facebook page on Monday as one of our other authors saw the pictured document.

Today’s post is one with a more positive message urging you to help save Ultra’s second weekend. This year would make the first time in 15 years that the festival is attempting to expand to two weekends. Even if you aren’t interested in attending Ultra but are part of the EDM community I feel you are obligated to help save what could be one of the best EDM weekends of the year. Swedish House Mafia is set to close out the festival with their final set together. While Armen Van Buuren is going to perform his milestone State of Trance 600 that weekend as well.

Chicago NYE and 2013 Preview

We’re only one week into the New Year; people have had just about enough time to recover from their Chicago New Years Eve festivities and right off the bat we get bombarded with big news announcements and plans for this year’s summer festival schedule. I’ll get to all that in a second, but first let’s look back at some of the more EDM focused events Chicago hosted while ringing in 2013.

Vision or The Castle had Mr Paul Oakenfold for the evening. This just shows that some of the more “original” popular EDM DJs (I include ATB and Tiesto in that list) still got it. If you need any convincing try to remember his set at North Coast last year. He showed he can still compete with today stoop talent, though trance has taken a back burner to Dubstep and Trap.

Congress Theater was packed for New Years Eve and the day before having Hardwell and Deniz Koyu on Sunday while The M Machine ,Mat Zo and Porter Robinson rung in the New Year with 4500+ ragers going crazy. This was probably the youngest of all the events as most catered to a more dressed up older audience. But it’s good to see the kids had somewhere to party as well.

Big Gigantic played with Griz at The Aragon ballroom for his second New Years Eve in a row in Chicago. Big Gigantic brings something different to the EDM scene, as they blend saxophone with percussion performance with and electronic twist. Griz can be best compared to Pretty Lights. If you haven’t checked either of them out you definitely should. They were fun to watch at electric forest last year.

The Hilton Chicago had its new year’s celebration hosted by Playboy Playmates while Mike Posner and Chicago’s very own Bad Boy Bill performed.  The night also included a dinner. This event was more of a dress up even but WhySoChi did have some friends who attended and said they had a blast.


But enough about 2012 time to take a quick look at 2013. Today 1/9/2013 tickets go on sale at NOON for EDC Las Vegas 2013! Follow this LINK to the EDC website to get your tickets. If you are like me you might consider skipping buying tickets as EDC has been confirmed for a Chicago debut this year. So far no lineup has been release but rumors have spread that it will be located at a racetrack and that Memorial Day weekend is the target date. But stay tuned because Pasquale Rotella, the owner of Insomniac Events who throw EDC has announced that on January 16 more details of EDC Chicago will be released.


We also posted a picture on our facebook page late last night what seems to be a document showing that the city of Miami is trying to stop Ultra Music Festival in March to last two weekends. This year is the first year Ultra has been split for two weekends and allegedly the authorities want to keep it just to one. More specifically week two would potentially be cancelled. I guess well have to see what happens, this could also be hoax.

Form what we can tell in the picture (to your left) we can see that Calvin Harris fans and Bassnectar bass-heads will be in attendance this year. Just a few weeks after EDC Chicago.
