By now, several individuals are on standby in their homes thanks to the biggest pandemic the world has seen in a while. Luckily, there will be a party waiting for all of us at home, thanks to Ultra’s Sirius livestream in place of this year’s festival. From this Friday on, the station’s UMF Radio is going to host Ultra Virtual Audio Festival with artists who were scheduled to perform such as Armin van Buuren, Afrojack, Marshmello, Oliver Heldens and several other artists.
“With the postponement of beloved events, necessary changes in people’s everyday life, and need for social distancing, we know our listeners are seeking a sense of community more than ever,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM. “To encourage that, we are pleased to be working with Ultra Music Festival to provide our listeners with this virtual audio festival featuring the diverse lineup of artists the UMF delivers year after year, as well as exclusive, fresh, new sets from some of the biggest names in dance music.”
Though UMF’s fight to reclaim their spot at Bayfront park was won, we’ll have to wait another year for Ultra to be back where it was. For now, it’s time to enjoy the music from the comfort of our homes.
Check out the stream this weekend and make a decision about this year’s ticket if you haven’t already. Details on Ultra’s rebate policy are on their website.
Starting 3/20, UMF Radio (Ch. 52) will broadcast SiriusXM’s Ultra Virtual Audio Festival featuring exclusive live DJ sets from artists who were originally scheduled to perform at @ultra, including @Afrojack, @arminvanbuuren, and more. Details: https://t.co/2YAeRnfkgn pic.twitter.com/xakYcDLpjc
