Ultra Music Festival has grown to be one of the largest electronic music festivals in the world, making the city of Miami a temporary home for the thousands of individuals that come flocking into the city. After the first day of the festival at their brand new location on the Virginia Key, festival-goers weren’t the only ones that had a lot to say about their experience thus far. Upon the festival’s main stage was KFC’s mascot, Colonel Sanders, who held a five-minute slot amidst the afternoon. Though the festival was characterized by a number of memorable artist sets, the promotional tactic was criticized by a number of artists, including Louis The Child and Alison Wonderland.

Speaking on the issue, the artists note that Ultra holds one of the most impactful platforms in the electronic music scene, and their stages should support hardworking, talented artists that work for the opportunity to perform at these events. Between the chaotic transportation issues at the end of night one that left thousands of attendees to make the hour long trek to the mainland, it looks like Ultra is just getting started.
