Starting at 12PM today, “UMF Radio” (which is normally a two-hour show on Friday nights) will be taking over Sirius XM’s “Electric Area” station on Channel 52, launching UMF Radio live from Miami specifically for the 2013 Ultra Music Festival and Miami Music Week.

Word is that UMF Radio will be limited-run, 24/7, and commercial free, showcasing performances, DJ sets, and interviews with a number of the biggest artists at the Ultra Music Festival, along with some special events:


  • On Monday, March 18 (from 6PM to 11PM), UMF Radio will be broadcasting from The Avicii Hotel, and featuring sets from Avicii, Cazzette, and more.
  • Tuesday, March 19 will find UMF Radio broadcasting from the “Elektro Freshman Class 2013″ party, which will feature Baauer, Carnage, Krewella, Danny Avila, and others. That starts at 6PM.
  • Thursday, March 21 (from 6PM to 1AM EST) has UMF Radio broadcasting from the Size Matters party with Thomas Gold, Riva Starr, and Steve Angello. Word is that Angello’s set at Size Matters will be the kick-off for his new “Size Matters” show on SiriusXM’s Electric Area.

It should be an interesting event and, paired up with UMF being streamed on YouTube, should help those of you who wished they were in Miami but couldn’t make it. Hit Page 2 for the SiriusXM Music Lounge schedule.
