Ultra Music Festival is one of the biggest dance music events in the world. It was originally produced n 1999 by business partners Ray Navarro, Russell Faibisch and Alex Omes. The festival grew to its incredible popular appeal throughout the years and celebrated its 10th anniversary during March 28–29, 2008.
After the move to Virginia Key in 2019 and cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, Ultra Music Festival returned to the Bayfront Park location for the 2022 edition on March 25, 26 and 27, 2022.
Hardwell performed as the closing act of the 2022 event, after being announced as an “exclusive” guest. His long-awaited return to Ultra Music Festival was a dance music comeback for the books. After being on a four-year hiatus, this 2022 Ultra performance was in front of an estimated 150,000 attendees and broke the record for the festival’s live streaming viewership.
The set introduced Hardwell’s big comeback as the artist also announced a brand new world tour and upcoming album, REBELS NEVER DIE. You can enjoy Hardwell’s full Ultra 2022 set at the bottom of the page.
