The unofficial kickoff of festival season, Ultra Music Festival, is the annual tone-setter of things to come for dance music festivals across the world. Hosting dozens of the top artists across countless genres, Ultra provides the perfect reason to deal with the incessantly issue-ridden Soundcloud. Endlessly searching accounts for uploads of our favorite artist’s sets from the Daytona 500 of EDM, festival season has become a second Christmas for dance music fans.
The Northwest’s version of Ultra, Paradiso, takes place a few months from now. But, getting a sneak peek from each of headliners at Paradiso 2015, all of which performed at Ultra last weekend, is something we’ll always be interested in. From Armin van Buuren’s classic trance sets to Skrillex’s star-studded masterpiece, we gathered each of the live-sets from this summer’s Paradiso headliners for future listening, as we prepare for the Northwest’s premier festival.
Check them out below and let us know which headliners you’re looking forward to most and who impressed you with their Ultra Music Festival performances! Comment below, on Facebook, or reply on Twitter!
