As Will Smith once said, welcome to Miami.
Or, at least welcome to our exclusive coverage of the massive event the city hosted this past weekend -- Ultra 2016! The event was jam-packed with stars, music, incredible food, and (of course) absolutely beautiful weather. We really didn't expect less from the sunshine state!
Were you able to attend the festival? If not, don't fret! The beauty of social media allows you to enter the world of Ultra from the comfort of your own home -- and probably give you enough festival envy to get on the wait list for 2017 tickets! For your pleasure, we've gathered some of our favorite Instagrams from the weekend to prove how absolutely awesome the festival was!
