Last night, Saturday, March 24, Miami’s ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL (ULTRA), the world’s premier electronic music event, took the genre to the next level. For the first time ever at ULTRA, global pop icon MADONNA appeared as a special surprise guest—the festival’s gift to their fans—to introduce the main stage final headlining artist AVICII. After her introduction, she joined the Swedish producer and DJ behind the decks and together they premiered his remix of her new single “Girl Gone Wild” from her upcoming album MDNA.
“I’ve been here in spirit for many years, but it’s good to finally be standing on the stage, looking at all you people who have come here from all around the world,” said MADONNA as she took ULTRA’s Main Stage. “In my world the words ‘music’ and ‘dance’ are not separated. Electronic music has been a part of my life since the beginning of my career. I can honestly say that a DJ saved my life.”
Beyond the weekend’s 165,000 fans in attendance of the sold-out festival in downtown Miami’s Bayfront Park, the event was captured on a world-wide scale over UMF TV’s free HD live stream, happening now via Google Play on YouTube at www.youtube.com/umtv.
