About Ultra Music:
This decade, for even the most casual music fan opening up iTunes or browsing the most-viewed videos on YouTube, one name has become synonymous and inexorably intertwined with dance music in America: Ultra. Patrick Moxey's Ultra Music is the #1 independent EDM label worldwide. Since the mid-1990's, the independently owned, New York-based dance label has marketed and promoted EDM music to the masses. In embracing the growing importance of the internet as the dominant means of discovering music, Ultra Music beat the major labels to the front lines of what is now a lifestyle movement gone mainstream. Ultra Music, via its visionary founder and CEO Patrick Moxey, has proven a key factor in the rise of EDM in America as it's known today to tens of millions of rabid fans worldwide. Today, Ultra Music, based in Manhattan, boasts 33 full-time employees and offices in Europe and Canada, as well as a new Los Angeles outpost.
Since 1996, Ultra Music has built up a formidable roster of some of the biggest names in dance music from around the world. deadmau5, Kaskade, Steve Aoki, Ferry Corsten, Wolfgang Gartner, Roger Sanchez, Above & Beyond, Calvin Harris, Tommie Sunshine, Benny Benassi and Bloody Beetroots are just some of the names the label has signed over the past decade and all are still on the current roster. In addition to the label, the Ultra Music YouTube page is the eighth most-viewed channel with more than 2,000,000,000 views.
About Ultra Music Festival:
As the world's most famous outdoor electronic music festival, Ultra has won "Best Music Event" by the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) six consecutive years, from 2005 to 2011, "Best International Dance Music Festival" by the Ibiza DJ Awards in 2008 and "Best Festival" by the Village Voice Media New Times consecutively five years running from 2005 through 2009. Originally created as a pure EDM (electronic dance music) festival in 1999, Ultra has grown through the years to present not only the genre's hottest, biggest and best headline artists (The Prodigy, Swedish House Mafia, The Chemical Brothers, Tiësto, David Guetta, deadmau5, Underworld, Kraftwerk, Armin van Buuren, Moby, Fatboy Slim, Justice, Carl Cox and Avicii to name a few), but also crossover headline bands that incorporate EDM elements in their music and have a history or new beginning in the EDM community and culture (The Cure, The Killers, New Order, Duran Duran, The Black Eyed Peas, Erasure, M83, Santigold, The Ting Tings, Cut Copy, Empire of the Sun and Bloc Party). In 2012, global pop icon Madonna appeared as a special surprise guest-the festival's gift to their fans-to introduce the main stage final headlining artist AVICII, joining him behind the decks to premiere his UMF remix of her new single "Girl Gone Wild." The year also was the subject of CAN U FEEL IT, a major documentary feature about the festival, which was shown in over 500 theatres nation-wide. Together with its signature, cutting-edge productions, Ultra is unrivalled by consistently presenting the world's greatest, most diverse EDM line-ups year after year.
In 2013, as it celebrates its 15 year anniversary, Ultra will become the first major EDM festival in the world to expand to two weekends with dates set for March 15, 16 and 17 and March 22, 23 and 24. Weekend 2 is already sold out, and Ultra has broken their previous record with ticket sales in 83 countries so far for the 2013 Festival.
A global brand, Ultra Music Festival takes place in Miami, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Ibiza and Korea, expanding into Europe with Ultra EUROPE July 2013 in Croatia.
