Ultra Music Festival recently announced its 2016 broadcast strategy, which all kicks off today and continues over the weekend right through until Sunday. For the first time ever, Ultra Live presented by UMF TV, produced by Nomobo and powered by 7UP, will broadcast from a custom built outdoor studio, live from the heart of the festival grounds, where fans will be encouraged to interact with artists and hosts alike.
From 3pm to midnight across the entire weekend, hosts Andrea Feczko and Andie Helfrich will orchestrate the content, including fan and talent interaction. Live sets already confirmed will come from Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, Aly & Fila, Andrew Rayel, Carnage, Cedraic Gervais, The Chainsmokers, Dash Berlin, Fedde Le Grand, Galantis, Hardwell, Kaskade, KSHMR, Laidback Luke, Markus Schulz, Martin Garrix, W&W and many more. Saturday and Sunday will also see a pair of special guests join Andrea and Andie as they co-host the broadcast.
UMF Radio, hosted by Andy Pate, will apparently deliver the world’s biggest broadcast of Electronic Music content ever, transmitting live for 8 hours across 50 networks, in 38 countries, as well as via the festival’s official app, which has also received an upgrade.
Produced by The Radio Department, among the artists confirmed to participate in this live radio event are Apollonia, Carl Cox, Dash Berlin, DJ Snake, Hot Since 82, Jamie Jones, John Digweed, Joris Voorn, Martin Garrix, Richie Hawtin, Steve Angello, Technasia, Tiësto, Tycho, W&W, Yellow Claw and many more.
