There were some serious safety concerns at last year’s Ultra Music Festival that resulted in a security guard being trampled and seriously injured by gatecrashers. In response, Ultra hired former Miami Beach Police Chief Ray Martinez as Security Director. They also made the 2015 festival 18+.
Underage EDM fans won’t miss the festival entirely. They can livestream the entire festival on Twitch from March 27-29.
The festival had a livestream on YouTube last year, but Twitch is Ultra’s exclusive streaming partner in 2015. The stream is sponsored by 7UP.
Adam Russakoff of Ultra says: “We don’t tolerate mediocrity and our switch to Twitch is yet another step in the continuum.”
Ultra’s lineup includes Röyksopp, RAC, Skrillex, Avicii, and many more artists.
