    Is anyone excited about Lady Gaga's performance on NYE? My friend wanted to come down for it but the plane tickets are $$$$$, and she just lost her job. I really don't want to be in a stadium on NYE anyway..

    Jesus Christ. $99?! I mean, that's actually a pretty good deal given the amount of people you get to see, but I remember the first year I went in 2000 it was like $40. And the economy has gotten WORSE since then.

    Rock concerts seem to have learned that there's a ceiling to ticket prices. Maybe someday DJs will find it too.

    $99 is good considering what it ends up being on the day itself... And I don't know what DJs they had back when it was $40, but they have the best line up now

    No worries i figured you just got done with your work thing to late to come out. You didnt miss much though. The DJ, who i guess used to be in the NBA, wasnt the best. I mean he was better than you would expect a celebrity DJ to be but he is no Mark Knight or PvD or anything like that. Plus i hate how there is no actual dance floor there and people just kinda stand around.

    But yea i'll be home Feb 28th to Mar 29th so i should be there assuming nothing crazy comes up.

    You are here for the best month :cheese: Or the shitstorm as I believe Matt M called it (So true)

    I will keep an eye on the $99 tickets for when they go on sale.

    They had all the people you'd heard of back then too. I remember getting there as Paul Oakenfold finished his set and them closing with Paul Van Dyk. Pretty sure I caw Carl Cox and some other big names in there too, but my memory of it isn't the clearest.

    Point is, used to be you didn't have to pay $100 to see Ultra.

    I take the view that it's still cheaper than what I'd pay back in the UK for festivals. And it's warmer. So I'm happy :coolsmile:

    Although can see that it hurts if you used to pay $40.

    Its still a good deal even at $100 when you consider its two days and the amount of big names there are. I mean it would cost you 20-40 to see each of them individually at a club so seeing just 5 acts and you've got your moneys worth basically. But dont get me wrong, i wouldnt complain if it went back to $40

    OMG! Nice one, thanks! I have just got my ticket :-)

    They are so sneaky... for a $99 ticket, there is a $32 service fee and $12 FedEx fee... it ended up being $144! I don't even care though, I'm going.

    Well fuck me. So i just bought my Ultra tickets and then go to the WMC site to register for WMC and come to find out that if you register for WMC admission to Ultra is included in your cost. Oh well, you'll see me on the corner selling my Ultra tickets for 3x what i paid for them.

    Jess you're my party buddy for that week! :p

    Oh f***! Oh dear... What does WMC give you, I thought it was for all the DJ stuff also. I work all week so won't make it to half of the stuff that goes on :-/ so wouldn't register anyway, but just wondered what it gets you?

    You will easily be able to sell your Ultra ticket and make a profit :coolsmirk:

    Well its $235 to register for WMC right now and that gets you, besides admission to Ultra for both days, access to all the seminars, demo listening workshops, free or reduced fare for WMC club events, admission to the dance music award show and a bunch of other stuff.

    I DJ so i plan on being there for a lot of the seminars, vendor exhibits and to do a little networking and im gonna try to put together a demo CD in time for WMC but i doubt i'll have the time.
