Ultra Music Festival Expands to Europe

Starting in the U.S. over a decade ago, Ultra Music Festival is one of the largest electronic music events in the world. In 2012, the Miami festival brought 165,000 through the gates and is frequented by all major DJs and producers. Beyond its regular Florida location, UMF has expanded to locations overseas, including events in Argentina, Brazil, and South Korea. Proving itself to be a global force, UMF is now adding a two-day European festival in Warsaw, Poland.

With most major European EDM festivals in Germany and the Netherlands, scheduling UMF’s first European performance in Poland seems like an odd choice. However, Poland has a strong EDM scene and is surrounded by 21 countries within a radius of 1,000 kilometers. UMF Poland will be held at the Hippodrome, a racetrack that’s twice the size of Miami’s Bayfront Park, and based on early ticket sales, concertgoers are coming from 31 countries.

UMF Poland is expected to be the largest EDM event ever held in the country. Mirroring the U.S. festival, UMF Poland will have six stages, including a Carl Cox & Friends tent. Headlining the festival, as of now, are Tiesto, Avicii, Afrojack, and Above & Beyond. The current lineup, by day, includes:
