I'm sure if you've read this blog for any length of time and seen any of my Twofer Tuesday post, you know my taste in music is extremely varied so maybe this isnt so shocking.
This weekend in Mi-jami is the Ultra Music Festival.
And per wikipedia:
Ultra Music Festival is an outdoor electronic music event held annually in Miami, Florida during the Winter Music Conference which occurs during the month of March. It is a 2-day event that takes place across 12 different stages featuring over 200 artists, DJs, producers and promoters.
Heres the official website: Ultra Music Festival

I WANNA GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
But Gingers out of town, my buddy Mikey from work went every year but he moved to Salt Lake City and I really dont have the $300 for a ticket. pffffffffft.
So I'll spend my weekend reading updates about the artist, stalking YouTube for uploads from the shows and wishing I was there.
These are just a few of my favorite Artist from back in the day.
Paul Oakenfold is the GOD of all DJ's and he'll be there this weekend..
His early stuff was very trance(y). His new stuff not so much. But I love this song and in case you didnt know, Brittany Murphy was a singer as well. (RIP)
DJ Tiesto. OMG. He's hawt, and my goodness he can mix. I love him above all others. He's trancy with a little house thrown in. He actually remixes a lot of DJ Oakenfolds songs.
Take a few minutes and watch this video. This song starts to take off right around 1:20 and if you've never been to a club and heard it or seen DJ Tiesto live I'm not sure how to explain it but the music MOVES your soul. You feel it in your body, your brain, your heart. You cant help but dance. I've been in a crowd like this, hearing this and its indescribable. WATCH the crowd....they are groooooooovin! And btw...this was at Disneyland Paris.
Our friends Passion Pit will be there. I posted about them awhile back here.
And Raves....they're held in different places; wharehouses, old clubs, on the beach. They dont start until 1am and go until noon the next day.
So I guess thats it. I'll have to wait until next year and try to get there then. Someday I'll make it. I may be 50 by the time I do but thats ok, I'll still groove.
I also had a thought...can you imagine what the music is gonna be like in nursing homes in 30, 40 years from now?? lol I hope they have an occasional Rave out on the bocce ball lawn once in awhile. ;)
HEY!! I just realized this was my 200th post! Yay me. :)
