Ultra Music Festival Miami 2015

The diversity of Ultra Miami 2023 lineup: Exploring the genre mix and international acts

The lineup for this year’s Ultra Miami promises to be the biggest and also the most eclectic ever.

For 2023, the organisation of Ultra Music Festival Miami has promised an even bigger and better edition. Back at its sacred grounds in Miami’s Bayfront Park, the festival presents itself with a powerful and packed lineup. From renowned artists to rising stars, the lineup for this year’s Ultra Miami is everything you’ve dreamed of and more. Along with quality, the other adjective that stands out is undoubtedly diversity. Diversity is quite visible not only in the musical genres but also in the mix of international artists. Different backgrounds, and very distinct careers, but all with a common goal: to make this Ultra Miami the biggest you’ve ever seen.

For this edition of the festival, Ultra Miami will feature 20 headliner acts and several dozen supporting acts. The headliners are much desired by all those who aspire to be present at this festival, but Ultra Miami is also a powerful platform for showcasing artists with less visibility, who gain a stage to match their talent. The Mainstage is where everyone wants to be, but the eclecticism of this lineup invites you to explore all the stages so that you can discover new experiences and fall in love with new artists. Ultra brings together the past, present and future of electronic music, determining the pace and quality that will be played throughout the rest of the year.
