SHELBORNE SOUTH BEACH
Anticipation has a funny way of heightening an event: both through its capacity to incite a slow-building crescendo of fervor, and in its ability to massively inflate one’s expectations. In the case of Ultra Fest, the hype is certainly warranted—as this monumentally epic musical endeavor deserves an equally salacious array of festivities. It’s a natural compliment—the proverbial jelly to the fest's peanut butter—and for those whose musical and carnal appetites remain unsatiated, there is a cornucopia of bashes (both musical and decadent) that correspond with the inaugural day of Ultra Fest.
Another day, another rager in Miami! As Thursday is the eve of the Ultra Fest, there is an absolute abundance of bacchanal opportunities. With a plethora of huge musical acts at the most poppin’ spots, the festivities shall be flourishing ‘till the break of dawn. Get an early start on the impending musical maelstrom—rage hard and often!
Here’s the low down on all the madness descending on the eve of the ‘fest!
