Ultra Music Festival 2015.
Bring out your neon raver gear and show off your best bass face with Tiësto, Skrillex, David Guetta, and all the EDM superstars smack in the heart of downtown Miami for the 72-hour fist-pumpin' rager. Ultra brings some can't miss music moments to Miami each year, and if you're into that scene, it's worth hopping in the car and driving south.
With Tiësto, Avicii, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Hardwell, Skrillex, Die Antwoord, David Guetta, and others. Friday to Sunday, March 27 to 29. Bayfront Park, 301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-358-7550; bayfrontparkmiami.com. Tickets cost $299.95 to $449.95 plus fees via ultramusicfestival.com. Ages 18 and up.
Lollipop Records' Cobalt Cranes love spending their Days In the Sun. That's why the LA psych-rock band is gonna bask in the bright Lake Worth sunshine before hitting up Propaganda for the night.
Days In the Sun National Tour with Sweet Bronco, Whorish Boorish, and Hypoluxo. Sponsored by Purehoney Magazine and Cheap Miami. Friday, March 27, 8 p.m. Propaganda, 6 S. J St., Lake Worth; 561-547-7273; propagandalw.com.
Is Nickelback the worst band ever? Who knows. One of our writers recently tried to listen to every one of the band's songs in an effort to find out. But their universal hatred is what's made the Canadian rockers so popular. And since there's no escaping the bland rock of Chad Kroeger and the Nickelback crew, you might as well join 'em at the Coral Sky Amp.
No Fixed Address Tour with Pop Evil. Saturday, March 28, 7:30 p.m. Coral Sky Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansburys Way, West Palm Beach; 561-795-8883; cruzanamphitheatre.net. Tickets cost $19 to $74 plus fees via livenation.com.
