With tickets for Ultra Music Festival 2016 now on sale, the official aftermovie for the historic 2015 edition has finally arrived:
Created by UMF Films and Charly Friedrichs’ FINAL KID team, this latest offering, shot in 4K, is yet another departure from the standard aftermovie format, capturing the pure essence and magic of Ultra Music Festival’s seventeenth annual edition at Bayfront Park in March of this year.
Immersing fans deeper into the action than ever before and providing the viewer with the most honest insight into the Ultra Music Festival experience to date, Charly’s work is wholly representative of ULTRA’s musical evolution and demonstrates precisely what fans can expect, come March 2016.
With an electrifying new soundtrack offering something different to the classic main stage sound, Charly’s unique vision for this aftermovie takes listeners on a diverse musical journey and into unchartered waters. Showcasing the vast range of genres and styles now on offer at ULTRA, the aftermovie’s exquisitely crafted tracklist really does deliver something special for everybody. From the deeper grooves of HI-LO and Josh Philips, to the high-octane sounds of Skrillex and Valentino Khan, the 14-minute masterpiece concludes with a brand new exclusive from ULTRA favourite and man-of-the-moment, Martin Garrix.
“When I planned on shooting this Miami aftermovie I knew I wanted to create a megamix again. The last Miami aftermovie was created as a short film with one custom soundtrack and a lot of story and slow-motion shots in it, but this time I felt like doing a faster one with a lot of new techniques, visual FX and editing tricks. Most of all I wanted to 'bring back the groove' so I created a soundtrack that has more flow. I want the viewer to be more 'inside' the festival, where people are dancing and not necessarily focused on the DJ. So it's a bit different, but I'm very happy with how it turned out, and of course I'm not leaving the lovers of the epic emotional shots with empty hands because none other than Martin Garrix provided me with an amazing and exclusive melodic track for the Grand Finale!” – Charly Friedrichs, Final Kid
Visually stunning in every sense, the 2015 aftermovie for The World’s Premiere Electronic Music Festival also sees the debut of ULTRA’s brand new RESISTANCE concept. Taking the form of an immersive 360° ‘Afterburner’ stage powered by Arcadia Spectacular, welcoming some of the biggest names in the house and techno world, this piece of audio-visual genius takes us right to the front row of the RESISTANCE Stage to showcase a completely different facet of Ultra Music Festival.

About ULTRA WORLDWIDE™
ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ is the global edition of the World’s Premier Electronic Music event, ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL.
The ULTRA brand was founded in 1997 by Executive Producer, President & CEO Russell Faibisch, and began producing electronic music events in South Florida, which led to the inaugural Ultra Music Festival in 1999 on the sands of Miami Beach.
The internationally renowned festival, which has taken place every March since its inception, celebrated its seventeenth anniversary from March 27-29, 2015 by bringing over 165,000 music enthusiasts to the sold out waterfront event in the heart of the City of Miami. Ultra Music Festival returns to Bayfront Park for its eighteenth annual edition, 18-20 March 2016.
Choosing to follow a unique, creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused around a true love for music, artists and fans alike, the ULTRA and ULTRA Worldwide brands represent not only the world’s biggest and most successful remaining INDEPENDENT electronic music festival brand, they are now the most international of any festival brand in the world by far. The event organizers continue to transport the unrivalled experience from the Miami flagship festival to an ever-growing number of destinations and fans all over the globe.
Over the past seventeen years, literally thousands of the world’s most iconic DJs, producers and live acts have mesmerized audiences with awe-inspiring sets at ULTRA festivals in ARGENTINA, BALI, BRAZIL, CHILE, CROATIA, IBIZA, JAPAN, KOREA, SOUTH AFRICA and of course MIAMI, as well as ROAD TO ULTRA events in CHILE, COLOMBIA, MACAU, PARAGUAY, THE PHILIPPINES, SEOUL, SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND, TOKYO, USA, and now forthcoming events in BOLIVIA, PERU and PUERTO RICO. Each and every new global edition is founded on the same successful recipe that has been perfected over seventeen years in Miami, combining the most diverse electronic talent with the most technologically advanced, large-scale festival productions in the world.
In addition, the ULTRA brands pioneered the live stream experience, ‘ULTRA LIVE’ (whereby the festival is brought online to over 20 million unique viewers globally) and the audio broadcasting platform ‘UMF RADIO’ (syndicated to FM Radio in over 42 countries and reaching more than 22 million listeners weekly). Also ‘UMF FILMS’ collaboration with FINAL KID has seen some of the most visually breathtaking festival aftermovies in the music space, including a feature-length documentary exploring the explosion of dance music, entitled CAN U FEEL IT, which premiered at the Ultra Music Festival, Miami 2012 and was exhibited in over 500 theaters across the Unites States.
In 2014, the ULTRA and ULTRA WORLDWIDE brands continued to push the boundaries, bringing an unparalleled combination of cutting edge production and the world’s best electronic acts back to previous strongholds and new frontiers across the globe. With its recent festival editions breaking records in JAPAN in September 2015, SOUTH AFRICA in February 2015, KOREA in June 2015, CROATIA in July 2015 and BALI in September 2015, and with the addition of the many new ROAD TO ULTRA events all over the world, the ULTRA brand has now united NINETEEN COUNTRIES across FIVE CONTINENTS worldwide.
