The springtime festival season has just kicked off with a bang as Ultra Music Festival 2013 started this last weekend in Miami and Austin, Texas mainstay South by Southwest 2013 just came to a close.
Ultra Music Festival in Miami, one of the largest EDM shows with a record 165,000 attendees last year, kicked off this past weekend with a star studded and jaw drooping line up. Artists Talenthouse has collaborated with on Creative Invites, including our favorite twins NERVO, Deadmau5, Crookers, Hardwell all were in attendance and Krewella will be playing next weekend for the second half of the festival. Admire the winning design in our Nervo and Miami tank top design contest here.
Swedish House Mafia, the group which includes Steve Angello, who collaborated on a creative invite with DJ photographer Rukes, is ending their One Last Tour at Ultra, with their final show as a group opening and closing the festival. Angello had a busy weekend as he also headlined Beyond Wonderland 2013 in Southern California the same weekend. Check out the winning submission to our Steve Angello and Rukes Creative invite here.
