8 Best Spring Break EDM Festivals
If there’s one time of year when everyone parties, it’s spring break. Why not spend it getting sweaty with your closest friends? Make that party happen with a bit of advance planning. Here are the 8 best spring break EDM festivals.
1. Ultimate Music Experience – South Padre Island, March 13-15
UME is bringing their ‘A’ game this year with headliners like Bassnectar, Tiesto, and Zedd. Plus they’re kicking off festival with a pre-party the day before with legend Steve Aoki. This promises to be a barn burner.
2. Electric Daisy Carnival – Mexico City, March 15-16
Like Ultra, Electric Daisy tours around, and for spring break they’ve given you a great excuse to head south of the border to catch appearances by Kaskade, Avicii, Tiga, Loco Dice, and loads more.
3. Buku Music and Art Project – New Orleans, March 21-22 2014
Not everyone in your crew have the same taste? Then you’ll want to hit up Buku in New Orleans. It’s the only spring break festival that has Kaskade playing next to Danny Brown, and Dave Guetta next to the Flaming Lips. Expand your musical horizons. Or get your indie rock friends to expand theirs.
4. Hard Miami – Miami, March 26-27
If you like your music rough and tumble, Hard Miami has you covered with headliners like Basement Jaxx, Boys Noize and Zeds Dead. Bring your earplugs.
5. Ultra Music Festival – Miami, March 28-30, 2014
A powerhouse of awesome music, one of the best EDM festivals in the world returns with a stellar lineup in 2013 including Above and Beyond, Avicii, Tiesto, Dave Guetta, Diplo, Carl Cox, plus Dizzee Rascal, MGMT and M.I.A. The goal for this festival seems to be to get you moving in any way possible.
6. SnowBall Music Festival – Denver, April 4-6
You might not think of Colorado as a party state, but that’s what SnowBall wants you to think. With its new pot laws, you might think Colorado is laid back, but with Pretty Lights, Knife Party, GRiZ, Plum Party and more, SnowBall aims to keep your heart rate up for days.
7. Euphoria Music Festival – Austin, April 25-26
One of the few festivals where you can also camp under the stars, Euphoria’s rustic, country getaway vibe will be contrasted by the pulse pounding beats of Zed’s Dead, Gareth Emery, Beats Antique, Lotus and more.
8. Inception Music Festival – Cancun, March 1-30
One of the best places to be during spring break is Cancun. The city itself is a non-stop party, and the Inception Music Festival ups the game with 30 days and nights of music. You heard that right, this festival lasts a full month! With over 30,000 people and 30 DJs including Tiesto, Hardwell, Alesso and R3hab, this is the place to be if you’re looking for something crazy.
