With the festival “off season” becoming shorter and shorter each year it feels, and with more and more events popping up nation wide… We wanted to give you our Top 5 Can't-Miss Music Festivals in March to help you kick off festival season in 2023.

Best Music Festivals in March

1.) Ultra Music Festival

March 24, 2023 – March 26, 2023 | Bayfront Park, Miami, Florida

Many would argue that Ultra Miami is the official kickoff to festival season. This is the premier music festival in Florida. With an average attendance of 150,000-170,000 yearly, Ultra is one of the biggest music festivals in the country.

Ultra is known for cultivating the cream of the crop for lineups, with names like Zedd, Timmy Trumpet, Rezz, Subtronics, Big Gigantic Nghtmare, Carl Cox, Hardwell, Eric Prydz on the phase one lineup, we are eagerly anticipating the other phases to be just as stacked.

This is a mainstream music festival attendees dream lineup and one that we are excited to attend here in 2023.

2.) Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival

March 2, 2023 – March 5, 2023 | Okeechobee, Florida

After being in the EDM community for over 5 years now, Okeechobee has undoubtedly been marked as a festival attenders favorite. I’ve never once heard a bad remark about this festival, and every time I hear someone talk about Okee, I commonly hear, “It’s my favorite festival.” Or, “It’s Florida’s Electric Forest.”

Okeechobee is a festival that is on my list to attend this upcoming year. When you hear so many people praise how amazing the festival and culture is there, you know it’s something you need to check out for yourself.

With EDM events becoming more mainstream, and with more and more people flooding into the music festival scene each year, sometimes there is a desire to attend smaller, more grassroots-style festivals. And if that sounds like your kind of vibe, then this is definitely the festival to be journeying out to in 2023!

With an average attendance of around 30,000 people, you are still able to experience big names in EDM like Odesza, Griz, Excision, Lsdream, and many more, all while having that intimate feel that we all love to see in a festival setting.

If you see the Raveraide totem there, be sure to come say hi and catch a vibe with the team!

3.) Beyond Wonderland

March 25, 2023 – March 26, 2023 | NOS Events Center, San Bernardino, California

Insomniac kicks off a large string of music festivals in 2023, starting with the famous Beyond Wonderland. With this being Pasquale’s personal favorite festival that he throws, it is guaranteed to be an all out event.

One thing that’s noteworthy about the lineup is the incredible amount of musical diversity that Insomniac is able to bring in. Last years Beyond Wonderland lineup brought in talented artists ranging from Above & Beyond, to Zomboy, to Benny Benassi, to Zedd, to Zeds Dead. Regardless of what genre of music you personally vibe to, there is bound to be something for you at this festival.

This is also a great opportunity to attend a festival at NOS Event Center before it gets incredibly hot, like at Hard Summer and other events slated for later on in the festival season.

4.) Friendship Festival Cruise

February 27, 2023 – March 3, 2023 | Departs from Miami, Florida

All Aboard! Friendship sets sail from Miami to the Bahamas for a four night, curated cruise aboard the Norwegian Pearl. With cruise festivals becoming the new trend, combining vacation life with the cream of the crop EDM music, we think that this trend is definitely here to stay!

With last years event serving over 3,000 guests and over 50 artists, we are eagerly anticipating the lineup for their 2023 edition.

This is a festival that tends to sell out very quickly, so you will want to plan ahead to ensure you secure your tickets for this magical getaway!

5.) Tomorrowland Winter Edition

March 18, 2023 – March 25, 2023 | Alpe D’Huez, France

Undoubtedly one of the premier festivals of Europe, Tomorrowland puts on two different events, including both a Summer and Winter edition. With last years stages standing as contenders for some of the most incredible & jaw-dropping ones we’ve ever seen, this upcoming winter edition is bound to be another over the top production.

With the event being held in the beautiful Swiss Alps, be sure to pack warm for the occasion. But also be ready for a heater of a lineup, with artists including Martin Garrix, Afrojack, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, and more to be announced!

With this festival being out of the country for most, you’ll definitely want to prepare well ahead of time. For more information on bookings head over to https://www.tomorrowland.com/en/winter/line-up
