Originally created as a pure EDM (electronic dance music) festival in 1999, UMF MIAMI has grown through the years to present not only the genre’s hottest, biggest and best headline artists (The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, Tiësto, deadmau5, David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Underworld, Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim, Kraftwerk, Justice and Moby, to name a few), but also crossover headline bands that incorporate EDM elements in their music and have a history or new beginning in the EDM community and culture (The Cure, The Killers, The Black Eyed Peas, Santogold, New Order, The Ting Tings, Duran Duran, M83, Empire Of The Sun, Bloc Party).
In addition to the annual Miami festival, the organizers have created the separate UMF WORLDWIDE brand, which continues expanding internationally being represented in six countries and four continents with sold out festivals and events in Sao Paulo (UMF Brasil) and Ibiza (UMF Ibiza), and introducing new territories including Argentina (UMF Buenos Aires), Warsaw (UMF Poland) and Seoul (UMF Korea).
