Before we get into this, I know last year’s Ultra Music Festival was the 15th anniversary, but I don’t remember too much Roman numeraling going on. The press release I just got said “XVI” on it, and I thought it was pretty damn regal so I kept it.
Last year, SirusXM opened up their “Electric Area” channel to UMF Radio, giving the world broadcasts from various Ultra Music Festival sets to enjoy via stream. For this year’s 16th edition of UMF, they’re doing it again. Kicking off on March 21 at 12PM ET, this special broadcast will take over Electric Area and encompass all of Miami Music Week, running through Monday, March 31.
While there’s no official schedule of what will be broadcasting live (yet), they will be making sure to play the sets from the festival’s biggest stars, with everyone from Tiesto to Mat Zo getting some time. SiriusXM’s “Music Lounge” will also be in effect, with interviews with some of the EDM scene’s biggest also going down.
SiriusXM subscribers have a plethora of ways to tune in: channel 52 on their SiriusXM satellite device, the SiriusXM Internet Radio app via their smartphones and other devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com.
