Ultra Miami Opens Doors, Day 2 Is On

Fear not, for your favourite U-shaped-logo festival is back on track.

Ultra Music Festival is back! Of all places they’ve thrown a party at, home seemed to be the most challenging in a long while. Miami proved to have adverse weather that felt like would threaten the festival, yet, after sending attendees home earlier last night under strong winds and lightning strikes, the festival managed to get Bayfront Park ready for Day 2 of the massive gathering.

Right as we speak, acts like Miss Monique and KSHMR are already filling the stages with people, mere minutes after doors opened at 4 pm EDT. As the day goes on and is off to a pretty solid start, let’s go through the most crucial events of the past hours:

1. Hardwell’s Mainstage Set, Rescheduled For Today

By far the most discussed subject on socials after Ultra’s early closing yesterday was what would happen with Hardwell. The star was about to hit the Mainstage decks when the whole situation became too dangerous, and so he couldn’t play his set. He turned to Twitter to express how sad he was. “I’m crying right now, 3 months of work by the team and myself. Wow….“.

And while we saw kind souls like Afrojack openly willing to give their timeslots to him on Sunday, Hardwell himself made a joint post with the festival to deliver the news: he’s playing TODAY, from 7:25 to 8:40 pm EDT.

2. Amelie Lens Megastructure Set, Rescheduled For Today

Another act people were eagerly hoping to see was Techno queen Amelie Lens, who was on to close the Megastructure last night. Weather conditions said otherwise. But good news struck again today. She’ll be playing the Megastructure TODAY from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.

3. Chris Lake & FISHER Set Won’t Happe

After the unfortunate cancellations yesterday, the House superstar duo couldn’t close the Mainstage as they planned to. They’ve since made a statement announcing the B2B unfortunately will have to wait for next year.

4. Day 2 Is Extending Hours

Ultra has announced the festival hour of closing will be delayed into the night, for attendees and DJs to make up for lost time. This will, potentially, give extra slots for acts who couldn’t play, either last night, or earlier today. Great news!
