South Padre Island’s 2013 Ultimate Music Experience

The Largest Spring Break Electronic Music Festival in North America

Picture it: a setting sun, gorgeous palm trees swaying in the wind, the beautiful chants of a united crowd celebrating life to the soundtrack provided by the world’s greatest electronic artists.

This is the sound of the biggest Spring Break electronic music festival. Global­groove Events, SugarSo­ciety, and Disco Donnie Presents proudly return to South Padre Island for the Third Annual UME, Ulti­mate Music Experience.

Since its inception, the UME has strived to bring the brightest stars in electronic music to South Padre Island. Beginning in 2011 as a 2-day week­end party, the First An­nual UME brought forth chart topping dj Afrojack, along with prolific hip-house pioneer’s Far East Movement. With over 7,000 jubilant concert goers in attendance the very first electronic festival in South Padre Island was born.

2012 saw the expan­sion of the festival from a weekend to a full fledged 3-day festival spanning Thursday, March 15 to Saturday, March 17. The second annual UME brought together EDM fans from all over the country, boasting one of the biggest lineups to be assembled for a festival. The biggest name in elec­tronic music on the plan­et Tiesto kicked it off right, captivating the audience with his trademark sound. Playing alongside the leg­end, his protege Hardwell made his mark on South Padre. Day 2 was ignited by EDM’s fastest rising artist Avicii bringing the festival to a whole new level. Performing open­ing duties were fellow members of the At Night family Cazzette. The weekend came to grand finale with dubstep’s biggest star Skrillex de­stroying Schlitterbahn to a raucous crowd with mass acclaim.

Over 30,000 were on hand over the 3 night span to witness history made on South Padre Island. The Ulti­mate Music Experience had been brought to the next echelon and was catapulted to become the biggest Spring Break electronic music festival in North American history.

In 2013 Globalgroove Events, SugarSociety and Disco Donnie Presents have done it yet again by bringing together one of the largest arrays of tal­ent to South Padre Island for the Third Annual Ulti­mate Music Experience. This year’s installment of the UME brings with it the official UME Pre-Party Wednesday, March 13 taking place at Clay­ton’s Beach Resort with bass music master Dillon Francis and an open­ing set by trap superstar Flosstradamus. Thursday, March 14 at Schlitterbahn Waterpark chart smash­ing phenomenon Calvin Harris will take the decks and bring his flavor of house music to the island. Open duties will be per­formed by newly named Cover Girl models, the beautiful twins of Ner­vo. Scottish dj producer Chris Lake will be direct support. Friday, March 15 also at Schlitterbahn Waterpark is all about the bass. Flux Pavillion will fire up the bass cannon and shake the foundation of South Padre headlining the 2nd day of the UME. Major Lazer, the brain child of dance music prodigy Diplo along with rising Trap Music artists Bro Safari will kick off the night.

Concluding the 3-Day festival will be the return of the biggest dj on the planet Tiësto sure to please the palette of any music fan. The beautiful ladies (and one gent) of Krewella will get the crowd hyped and ready for the legend. Open­ing the night, the South Texas debut of the latest EDM sensation 17-year old Danny Avila.
