America’s premiere electronic music event is back! From March 22nd to 24th, Ultra Music Festival will be taking over the city of Miami, with the biggest names in the world of electronic music headlining the concert at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami. Over 150,000 attendees are expected for the 3-day event.

With the hype for this year’s Ultra Music Festival headliners at a fever pitch, decided to switch gears from our typical coverage of sports and legal betting in Florida to bring you a preview of Ultra Fest’s lineup as only we know how — by ranking the Ultra Fest DJs.

Using Google Trends, took a break from Florida sports betting updates and ranked each Ultra Music Festival headliner based on their search engine interest score, a comparison tool that shows the relative interest of search engine topics.

Walker and Guetta Top Our List

According to our research, Alan Walker and David Guetta are the Ultra Music Festival headliners that Florida is most hyped to see. In a tie at the top with a search engine score of 54, both Walker and Guetta are set to hit the Ultra Main Stage this weekend. 

Performing first is Alan Walker, the masked Norwegian DJ with over 45 million YouTube subscribers. He’ll go live from Ultra Fest in Miami at 6:00 pm on Friday, March 22nd. Meanwhile, the OG of EDM, David Guetta, will close out Saturday from the main stage at 10:45 pm on March 23rd.

The next headliner fans are most excited to see at Ultra Music Festival is Excision. The Canadian DJ is currently in the midst of a gigantic tour, bringing his signature heavy-bass dubstep sound and visually arresting stage show across North America. Festivalgoers can catch him at Ultra on Saturday night. 

We’ve got another tie at number four. Floridians are equally interested in Ultra Music Festival headliners Tiesto, who owns the sunset spot on the main stage Friday night, and Martin Garrix, who’s sandwiched between Excision and David Guetta during the big Saturday night show.

Other Ultra Fest headliners slated for Saturday’s show on the main stage include Steve Aoki (6th on our list), Deorro (8th), and Frank Walker (9th). Meanwhile, Hardwell (7th) and Nicky Romero (10th) are all part of the Friday night line-up, alongside Alan Walker.

Since its debut in 1999, the Ultra Music Festival has been a major part of Miami's life for the past 25 years, especially as electronic music has grown increasingly popular. Hopefully, you’ve got your tickets to the 2024 edition, as it’s already sold out. If not, you can already sign up to be on the guest list for next year’s event.
