Ultra Music Festival 2012 Highlights

ultra music festival

Campus Socialite had students on the ground covering the three day Ultra Music Festival that brought 165,000 fans to their feet. DJs that rocked the EDM extravaganza included Skrillex, Tiesto, David Guetta, Justice, Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Kraftwerk, New Order and many more. The most surprising moment at Bayfront Park in Miami may have been when headliner Avicii was introduced by Madonna. The 22 year old DJ premiered his remix to Madonna’s new single, “Girl Gone Wild.” Madonna than proceeded to make a statement fully knowing it would bring the house down with emphatic applause; “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?”

Not everybody supported Madonna’s presence and especially choice of wording. Monday morning featured Deadmau5 ranting about Madonna’s advocacy for ecstasy on Facebook. Clearly he doesn’t support the use of MDMA (Molly) in the EDM culture believing its brings a negative stereotype to the scene. Here’s his honest assessment of Madonna which by the way we love.

If you weren’t there with us, we have you covered. For more highlights of the overall weekend, we collected the best videos one could find.
