Ultra Music Festival 2014's Ten Best DJs

Don't miss Hot Creations label boss Jamie Jones at Ultra 2014.

No matter what you tell yourself, there is absolutely no way to catch every act that you want to see at Ultra Music Festival. Never mind the overlapping set times, just trying to traverse Bayfront Park is a daunting task once it's crammed with 100,000 ravers.

Our advice: Find a stage (or two) with lineups that you like and hang 'round till you're ready to call it a night. Another piece of advice: Avoid the main stage. Instead, stick to the smaller stages and tents like Underground Story or Carl Cox & Friends, which offer a wide variety of acts that are more than just button-pushers.

Here are our educated recommendations for who you'd shouldn't miss at Ultra 2014.
