Ultra Music Festival vs. WMC/MMW, Miami’s Premier Party Guide 2014

IMG_1124

Facebook news feeds flood with event invitations, Twitter Timelines stream endlessly with emoticon-laden countdowns, and there is only two more #ThrowbackThursday’s to post photos of past years ticket stubs. This is my favorite time of year, and we are just getting started.

Ultra Music Festival and Winter Music Conference, in conjunction with Miami Music Week, are just around the corner (3/21-3/30) and if you do not already have tickets to see your favorite artists, chances are you’ll be paying top dollar by this point.

Ultra Music Festival’s site lists the event as 92% sold out and early bird tickets for various parties have come and gone, in some cases four to five times over. But if money is no option OR you are trying to stretch your available funds, this is your premier party guide for Miami’s 2014 UMF/WMC/MMW festivities.

*The following shows for each day listed are in order from most to least expensive and do not include all shows. Completely sold out events are not listed.
