gave the sun-kissed beaches of the region the miss. The Bayfront Park Amphitheater was the scene of the
Festival that drew more than 60 artists from various musical genres. DJ Carl Cox, The Chainsmokers who have
a reputation of consistently churning out hits that go viral in no time at all, EDM master Zedd, and psychedelic
rocker MGMT were the stars of this year’s show.
The Performers and Performances at the Ultra Music Festival 2014
The stars at the Ultra Music Festival of 2014 gave performances that got the crowds on their feet and had them
there throughout the duration of the shows. For instance, DJ Tiësto invited the Icona Pop ladies alongside him
on the stage on the opening day of the festival. They performed their foot-tapping number Let’s Go. Friday
night also saw Kaskade moving the crowds with Last Chance. Incidentally, Kaskade had debuted the title song
of his Grammy-nominated album, Atmosphere, in last year’s edition of the Ultra.
The Ultra Music Festival draws the world’s best electronic music talents, and this year was no exception. Eric
Prydz wowed the crowds with his visually stunning stage composed of LED screens and dazzling holograms.
The Ultra Music Festival of 2014 also saw a formidable line-up of bass-music artists who gave the crowd a
rocking and swinging time. Seven stages had come up in this year’s festival, and the UMF Radio stage, nestled
snugly beneath a hillock of palm trees, was the scene for some foot-tapping bass music. Crizzly and 12th
wooed the crowds with their brands of music and set the scene for a gala time.
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame joined Carnage on the Ultra Worldwide stage and had the audience go into a
frenzied mode with their pulsating tunes and electrifying music.
The Ultra Music Festival Adds a Special Touch
This year’s Ultra Music Festival will also be remembered by fans for the performance by Basement Jaxx. It
has been almost a decade since this post-breakbeat outfit from the U.K. tasted success with their numbers.
They performed their famous numbers Jump n’ Shout and Where’s Your Head At? In this year’s Ultra and had
the crowds roaring with delight. Their performance won the hearts of their loyal fans who had all along been
wondering what had become of Basement Jaxx and also impressed many others who were scarcely familiar
with the band. Kudos to the organizers of the Ultra for making the event memorable!
