This Week In Festival News (Jan 31-Feb 4, 2022)
Miami Music Week is just around the corner and that means the start of festival season. With each passing day the line-ups roll in and it gets increasingly harder to decide what shows to attend. If you're having trouble keeping up with all the announcements, we break them down for each week.
Ultra Music Festival Phase 3 Lineup
Ultra Music Festival always has a stacked lineup full of the most distinguished names in the game. As if the first two lineup announcements weren’t already remarkable on their own, the internationally renowned festival just unveiled phase three of their incredible artist roster. Not sure if Ultra has reached its final form, but phase 3 includes massive names like KSHMR (The Live Experience), Krewella, JOYRYDE b2b Ghastly, Michael Bibi, John Summit, Dom Dolla, Kill The Nose, Ilario Alicante, and Slushii.
After what has felt like an eternity since its exquisite 20th anniversary at its Bayfront Park home, it’s about time UMF returns to Downtown Miami, right where it belongs. The forthcoming 22nd edition of Ultra is about to be one of its most massive productions yet!
Tickets to Ultra Music Festival are available now.
Tomorrowland Dates & Three Weekend Expansion
As one of the biggest festivals in the world, Tomorrowland makes its highly-awaited 2022 comeback with some astonishing news. The extravagant festival has just announced that they’re doing things slightly differently this year, and we say that in the best way possible. After being granted a permit to extend the festival’s duration, Tomorrowland will take over the lively town of Boom, Belgium, this summer for three back-to-back weekends instead of their usual two-weekend showcase.
The festival’s curators had to make up for missing out on two consecutive years of the magic and enchantment Tomorrowland brings. Not to mention that this area of Belgium benefits tremendously from the money Tomorrowland tourists spend, so there was no reason not to approve this triple threat celebration. Get ready for three weekends of love, music, and unity on July 15 – 17, 22 – 24, and 29 – 31.
Pre-Registration for Tomorrowland tickets is now open.
