MIAMI — Latino DJs will sound louder than ever at the 23rd Ultra Music Festival Miami, considered the pinnacle of electronic music festivals with world-renowned DJs, unrivaled production and unparalleled stages at Bayfront Park, from Friday to Sunday.

No international DJ wants to miss this event, but only the best play at Ultra, which has established Miami among the world capitals of electronic music.

“Miami is one of the great centers of the arts and electronic music,” says Brazilian DJ Lukas Rafael Hespanhol Ruiz, known as Vintage Culture, who ranks 11th on DJ Mag’s list of the 100 best electronic music DJs in the world.

“This festival is what we all dream of when we start our careers in music. Miami Ultra is the benchmark for electronic music festivals,” said Vintage Culture in an interview with el Nuevo Herald. His set is one of the most anticipated this year at Ultra.

With over 8 million followers on Instagram and 7.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify, Vintage Culture stands out among Ultra’s all-star participants, alongside celebrities such as David Guetta, Adam Beyer, Cirez D, Afrojack, Alesso, CamelPhat, Charlotte de Witte, Gareth Emery, M.I.A., Marshmello, Michael Bibi, Stephan Bodzin, Tiësto, and Vini Vici.

According to Vintage Culture, Ultra is one of the best festivals on the planet due to “a combination of factors that only happen here. To have the audience dancing and singing along to songs produced by the best talent in the world, state-of-the-art sound and lighting combined with one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with unique shows so close to the ocean, is a stunning visual image, especially at sunset.”


Mexican-American DJ and producer Erick Orrosquieta, known on stage as Deorro, says Ultra Miami is “the center of the electronic world. When you’re at Ultra in Miami, the level of the artist always grows.”

Deorro has 7.7 million monthly Spotify listeners and just released “Discoteca (Decorro Remix)” featuring IAmChino and Pitbull, and a four-track EP “Reflect,” which he will play at his debut at Ultra. “A dream come true,” he confessed to el Nuevo Herald.

Deorro’s show promises surprises, with the collaboration of Lenny Tavárez and, perhaps, Elvis Crespo, he says. “I like to let myself be carried away by people and improvise. There will be songs from the new album, which are the old sounds recreated with the current ones,” he announced.
