It was Friday, March 28, the first day of Ultra Music Festival's official closing of the Winter Music Conference. As the sun began to set over the city's skyline, Miami’s Bicentennial Park began to vibrate as the six stages welcomed some of the worlds most influential DJs. As darkness continued to fall over Bicentennial Park, DJs such as Moby, Paul Van Dyke and Tiesto spun some of the sickest sets, with most DJs spinning some of their most recent hits. The crowd was by far one of the most diverse crowds I'd ever experienced, there were people from all over the world, including Lithuania, Croatia and Spain amongst many others.

Its almost that time!
The way they set the venue up could not have been more helpful, with each DJ tent being no more than a few steps away (unless you're carrying a girl on your shoulders, then it may be a little longer). The only thing they could have done better was set up more cocktail tents. There were two beverage tents, with only one dedicated to alcoholic beverages. Each time you spent at least 15 to 20 minutes trying to order...although I think my drink carrying skills much improved over the last weekend, I can officially carry up to 7 drinks now, not to mention my maneuverability skills through a hale of dancing boys and girls (I never promised I wouldn't spill though). Saturday, which was officially the last day of the Winter Music Conference, the DJs began spinning at 12PM and it went all the way through midnight, with so much time for sets, there were a lot more performances (although we didn't get there untill 7PM, so we missed some good performances, such as David Guetta and Ferry Corstein!!). Saturday, being the last day of the conference, had had attracted so many more people, the main stage exploded with an amazing performance by Underworld, as well as Sasha & Digweed. Carl Cox also had an amazing turn out, which was not really a big surprise since he had a tent dedicated only to his sets both Friday and Saturday. Ultra 2008 was such an amazing experience and all I can say at this point is...BRING ON ULTRA 2009!!!!!!!!

OH MAN! I WISH I WOULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS! I LOVE THOSE DJ's! Especially Ferry Corstein and Paul Van Dyk! I can tell you had a great time! And that's one talent! Carrying up to 7 drinks? That is a skill I don't think I will conquer! The most I carry is like, 4!
