Attracting upwards of 70,000 ravers and revelers each day, the party started in 1999 as a humble one-day festivity on South Beach.

The festival overlaps with Winter Music Conference (WMC) and the week is commonly referred to as Miami Music Week (MMW) with DJs spinning at various satellite pool parties and late night bashes at clubs across town. In 2015, Ultra became an 18 and over event where previously all ages were welcome.

MIAMI BEACH FASHION WEEK
MAY 2017 (Date TBD)
Miami Fashion Week focuses on the clothes that make sense to show in Miami – resort wear. Miami has always been a resort wear kind-of –town. We lounge in bikinis year around and visitors can pack a book bag with two bathing suits and a cover-up and make it last a weekend. Even dressing up in Miami is a resort kind-of affair. You’ll never, ever need a coat around here and even a scarf or boots don’t get pulled out of the closet very often. It’s only logical that Miami Fashion Week is all about resort wear.
