With Ultra Music Festival 2014 drawing to a close on Sunday night, the team behind the festival have announced that Ultra Music Festival 2015 will take place March 27-29, 2015. The 16th edition of Ultra Music Festival boasted some big numbers: 165,000 party people from over 90 countries worldwide across three days (March 28-30) packed themselves into Bayfront Park venue in Downtown Miami. The 2014 Ultra Live Stream produced by UMF TV garnered 9,655,615 views in total from more than 190 countries worldwide in just 3 days, compared to last year’s viewership of just over 11 million when the festival was two weekends and six days long. Organizers claim to have generated $233 million for the local economy. UMF 2014 did have some bad news: a security guard was nearly trampled to death by gatecrashers at Bayfront Park, leading for Ultra to make a full security review of the event. Miami’s Mayor Tomas Regalado has called for the end of the annual three-day March festival.
