With three jam-packed days, eight stages, and more acts than you could ever hope to see, the Ultra Music Festival lineup can be a daunting list to tackle. Even so, it's worth combing through the sea of DJs and performers to find the truly can't-miss musicians among them.
This year, in its most massive iteration yet, Ultra has done an excellent job curating music that appeals to fans of all stripes. The selection of live shows features more pop and rap than ever before, and world-famous DJs alongside up-and-comers means a well-rounded EDM experience, guaranteed. If you're attending the festival you've probably picked out your favorites already. But, in case you need help deciding, these are the five performers that we wouldn't want to miss.
