Dude ... Sensory overload.

There's so much bass and lasers pumping through downtown Miami, it might break off the mainland and becom a new, free-floating island.

That's thanks to the millions upon millions of dollars that have gone into insuring that Ultra Music Festival 2013 is the most aggressively technological production in the history of the Universe. Or at least Miami-Dade County.

Here are the five raddest stage setups at Ultra 2013.

Upcoming Events

5. The Bass Station

The Bass Station stage, also known as UMF Radio, is a giant steel boombox nestled between palm trees in a grass valley on the edge of the festival grounds with a skyscraper backdrop. It features LED screens, multicolored spotlights, and subs that drop like ten-ton boulders.

At night it looks like this:

4. The Mixmag Bayfront Stage

Set deep in the cut of Ultra and backed by Biscayne Bay, this miniature stage eschews the massive scope of other setups for a compact, loud experience, that still packs oomph with smoke and lighting elements like these:

3. Live Stage Amphitheater

From acommodating laser-eyed skulls to electronic live bands, this stage exhibits the most versatility in hosting artist-specific props with booming sound, not to mention extensive light and screen works like these:

Modestep, live.

 

2. The Mega Structure

This isn't just a stage. It's an entire nightclub complete with a multitude of ceiling-mounted lightworks. Inside, the mega structure looks like someone airlifted LIV out of the Fountainebleau and dropped it on Ultra, minus the couches, because people actually dance at UMF.

 

1. The Main Stage

Yo, this is the motherfucker that has to wow the most people at once. So it packs the most punch. Jillions of jiggawatts of bass, more lasers than the Deathstar, and jumbotrons viewable from space.
