    Go at any time. Going later is fine, in fact the crowds to go in will be much less. Ultra is like a marathon event now, no one can do the full six days and survive! I miss the 2 day weekend, so much easier... And cheaper.

    Hi all,

    Me and a few buddies from the UK are going to be in Miami from the 7th - 14th so will just miss the main festival. Are there any pre festival events that go on?

    Super excited to be back in M. The last time was when i was 10 (im 39 now!!) so i have a feeling it will be a COMPLETELY different experience

    cheers

    frosty

    If you stick to regular clubs and bars and whatnot, not you're not too old. If you're hitting up The Clevelander and Fat Tuesday's on a Monday night you may find yourself surrounded by college kids. But we're a big city so you can escape SB if you want to.

    I wanna do Ultra but for one day. I wish we could still buy single tickets like we could in the old days. Sigh...

    Are you even able to buy single-day tickets on the secondary market? Or is that all done with ID's and stuff?

    I was wondering the same thing? I just wanted to hit one day because I missed the pre-sales and they sell out in no time anyway. This is also my first year here, so I want to enjoy it. There are tons of them listed on sites like Craigslist for single days! But you would have to get the actual ticket/card to get in so I don't know how or if that would work...

    Seems they are on sale on CL as one days. I wouldn't worry about the IDs and stuff, I've been with friends who bought theirs off CL so the names didn't match and no one cares on the door, they just want you in as soon as possible.

    Hey Matty, welcome to the forums! Where are you staying in Miami? It's really easy to make friends during ultra week.

    gypsy cab...when someone is going in the same direction as you and you throw them some cash for gas money. guess it is also known as carpooling (but with a stranger). in dc it is known as a slug-line, but people actually stand in a queue, wait for someone to pull up and then as many people as possible pile into the car (also helps with HOV restrictions).

    Ohhh, I see. Yes people do it. Not sure how safe it would be. To be honest, most people just walk back to SoBe across the bridge cos they can't find a cab. The taxis seem to stay well away from downtown when Ultra ends....

    I used to attend Bonzai the rock concert held by 94.9 Zeta, that seems like 100 years ago, but during one of the Bonzais it became a prank to knock over Port O Potties with people in them, so I think if you must resort to the Port O Potty you must also acquire a trustworthy guard as well.
