Ultra Abu Dhabi might have been cancelled, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out altogether as Ultra is hosting a live stream festival this weekend.
Ultra Music Festival has announced an Ultra Virtual Audio Festival on UMF Radio starting from Friday, March 20.
Beamed live around the world on Sirius XM, the online festival will feature some of those due to play in Abu Dhabi including Afrojack and Major Lazer.
And if you can’t wait until then, here’s Martin Garrix’s set in full from last year.
“With the postponement of beloved events, necessary changes in people’s everyday life, and need for social distancing, we know our listeners are seeking a sense of community more than ever,” said Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer of SiriusXM.
“To encourage that, we are pleased to be working with Ultra Music Festival to provide our listeners with this virtual audio festival featuring the diverse lineup of artists the UMF delivers year after year, as well as exclusive, fresh, new sets from some of the biggest names in dance music.”
The online festival will run from Friday, March 20 at 5P ET through to Monday, March 23. And you can tune in via the SiriusXM app.
It’s not quite the same thing as being front and centre at Ultra Abu Dhabi with the music pumping.
But right now, in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, we’ll take any opportunity to rave!
So tune in to the Ultra festival live stream on Friday and take a moment to forget the chaos in the world.
