2013 Miami Spring Break Concert Guide to Winter Music Conference vs. Ultra Music Festival: Top Shows

The 2013 Winter Music Conference kicks off March 15th in Miami and continues for ten days through the 24th.  Eerily similar are the dates for the 2013 Ultra Music Festival; which weekend one dates are March 15-17th and weekend two dates are March 22-24th. Beginning and ending on the same exact days, these two mecca gatherings bring hoards of music fans to South Beach.  With midterms coming to an end, it is safe to say that this continents, and possibly other continents, majority of college students will be flocking down to south beach come March 15th.  The question is, WMC or Ultra?

The right answer is WMC.  If you prefer listening to, learning about, and engaging in quality music from legends of the field that are developing and strengthening the modern sound of music then WMC is the right choice.  However if you prefer the mainstream and want to be part of a huge festival full of neon and drugged out ravers then Ultra might be the right fit for you.  Ultra is for those music fans who don’t care about the actual music as an art and simply use the, for lack of a better word, shitty music as a medium to allow them to take drugs and dance blindly.  There is an art form presented at WMC and then there is a dumbed down version of the art that somehow appeals to the masses and is both unfulfilling and unrewarding for true music fans.  For those who care about the form, beauty, essence, and are curious about the future of quality music, check out these unreal events, performed by the visionaries for the next generation of music, going down in during Miami Music Week 2013:
