This Spring is the 22nd annual edition of the ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL, taking place March 20th – 22nd at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami. Each year the sun drenched vibes of the festival turn the city into a hotbed of beautiful music, culture and parties. This year is no different, with music from Flume, Zedd, Major Lazer, DJ Snake, SOFI TUKKER and more than 100 other acts set to play the 3-day event.
The evolution of ULTRA‘s curation between music and live production mixed with a forward thinking construct of what live music is all about visually, continuously surprises. Pushing limits, and forging new paths within the industry is something they not only pride themselves on but are synonymous with.
Since its inception in Miami in 1999, Ultra Music Festival has remained a creative playground where Ultranauts are encouraged to think about what the future of fashion will look like, and express themselves through rocking outfits inspired by the festival’s intergalactic, sci-fi aesthetic.
This year, Ultra teamed up with fashion brand iHeartRaves to create a collaborative capsule collection called ‘ULTRA STYLED’ that reflects the festival’s futuristic feel. Led by four unique looks – TECH DOLLZ, INTO THE MATRIXX, REBEL RESISTANCE and SPACE BABEZ – the overall vibe is edgy, cyber and dynamic. The collection is comprised of more than 200 curated pieces, including kaleidoscopic, reflective fabrics, playful uses of mesh and fishnet, sporty and robotic accessories, and pops of neon.
Ultra consistently utilizes the most cutting-edge technology in its staging and designs, and Ultra’s festival fashion mirrors that same innovative verve.
Shop the ‘ULTRA STYLED‘ collection here, and head to Ultra Music Festival’s onsite “SHOP ULTRA” merch store next month to purchase the Ultra Miami 2020 Spring Collection.
The collection launch’s online today, February 28th – Snag one of these badass pieces before this years fest and make it one to remember!
