Ultra Music Festival and Miami Music Week are returning for the first time in over two years, and the week is once again full of can’t-miss EDM shows.
Miami Music Week might be the best part about the Ultra Music Festival experience. Ultra is one of the biggest electronic music events of the year, but the pool parties and late club nights in Miami are really what make the festival special.
There’s no shortage of shows on the official Miami Music Week website. Virtually every artist in the scene is playing at least one set in Miami. Ultra and MMW bring a mix of electronic music that no other event can compete with, and more parties are still getting announced. If you’re still deciding which events to attend this year, check out our list of the best Miami Music Week shows for 2022.
