Following the recent release of his third full-length album, In The Air, Morgan Page has accomplished much to be proud of in the last couple of months. In addition to a widely successful album tour, a performance with Calvin Harris at Coachella that garnered rave reviews, and the release of a #1 hit on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay chart (Morgan’s track, In The Air, remained in the Top 10 for 25 weeks), the American progressive house producer just recently announced a new residency for 2012 at Las Vegas’ lucrative nightclub XS.
A two-time Grammy recipient, Morgan has earned musical support from artists like Sasha, Dany Tenaglia, John Digweed and Deep Dish. We got to catch up with him as he prepared his weekly radio show for Sirius XM.
Ultra Music Festival (UMF) is returning to downtown Miami’s Bicentennial Park for what is probably the most anticipated weekend of the year. Thousands will flock to Miami for Ultra’s first three-day event (formerly only Friday and Saturday) on Friday, March 25, Saturday, March 26 and Sunday, March 27. The growth of the electronic music genre, from the past year alone, is clearly visibile through the expansion of Ultra this year and the growth of its headlining artisits.
Ultra is expecting 150,000 attendees over the span of three days this year, being the world’s first ever major electronic music festival to expand to three days and completely sell out. Being the first major North American music festival of 2011, Ultra Music Festival will no doubt raise the bar and set the standard high for live music everywhere. Spirits are already high in Miami as the stages are being built and the streets are getting crowded.
