The news just came out this morning that the global EDM phenom is launching “Avicii Hotel at SLS Hotel South Beach” from March 26 to 30, during the Ultra Music Festival!!!
“I’m so excited to, for the second year in a row, launch the Avicii Hotel and get in front of fans on this amazing property during Miami Music Week,” said Avicii.
I have to give it to him! The Ultra Music Festival is one of the biggest EDM festivals in the world and he’s launching his own hotel sponsorship for the event! Well done, Avicii! 😀
This is the lineup for Ultra…
Can you even believe your eyes?!?!?!
Tiesto…Zedd…Avicii…Armin Van Buuren…Alesso…Krewella…Martin Garrix…Hardwell…David Guetta…Afrojack…Nervo! OMG!!!
So let it be known that the top 5 DJs in the world will be there!!!!!!!!
Basically I plan on attending this every year at some point in my life haha 😀
I saw Krewella last year in Nashville and they were SO unbelievably amazing!
There’s my sick Instagram from that night haha
I’m also super interested in that new Martin Garrix kid! A Scooter Braun artist that was signed at 16 and is an internationally known DJ! I remember watching an interview where he said that he would go out to play a DJ set in Ibiza on the weekend and be back in class with his schoolmates on Monday! He called that normal!
Check out his amazing song “Animals” here:
So if you live anywhere near Miami or need a place to take a vacation…head down to the Ultra Music Festival on South Beach!!!
And don’t forget to say hi to Avicii for me!
