Day three of weekend one of Ultra Music Festival 15 was by far the maddest of all of all three days. The crowds were thick spilling out into the streets and lawns at every stage, worldwide music buffs getting their last fix for the weekend packing in every minute of beats, bass and lasers to take back to their native homeland. Camped out at the Mega Structure for most of the night, the night was nothing short of an amazing time, visually with laser light show mixed in just perfectly to the playlist picks of the talent on stage, you couldn’t have asked for a better ending to a weekend long of music mania.
With Avicii sliding up a slot to fill in for Calvin Harris who’s flight was delayed, he laid down sweet, body-moving sounds. Tiësto never ceases to amaze with people coming from every structure, piled deep from stage front all the way to the bar back, tuned in and fist pumping with the best of them. Taking brief breather popping over to the Life Stage to see the legendary ’90s superstar, classic and timeless, showing out on stage as only Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion as he is now known) knows how to. Head bobbin, hip shaking to the old and new grooves of this lyrical Rico Suave closing out with “Young, Wild, and Free” with the fans continuing the song on to their next stop. Although delayed,Harris showed and put on a show with the catchy radio stream hooks getting the crowd singing along as they danced their hearts out.
Closing out the night, David Guetta played his heart, transferred to the crowd where people danced their face off until the night came to and end. Weekend one of Ultra Music Festival 15 was the kickoff that Miami Music Week asked for and more.
