Ultra Music Festival (UMF) is an annual outdoor electronic music festival that occurs in March in the city of Miami, Florida, United States. The festival, which was founded in 1999 by Russell Faibisch and Alex Omes, is named after the 1997 Depeche Mode album, Ultra.
Ultra Music Festival coincides with the annual Winter Music Conference, which is also held in Miami.
Although they share names, UMF was not directly tied to Ultra Records, an electronic music record label. However, the two entities did announce a “global alliance” in August 2012, which would allow them to collaborate on marketing and cross-promotion.
