In this episode, we get to see how it all started with small music gatherings, although the stages were still not as flashy as they are now, and the closing sets didn’t have a fireworks’ show. Year after year more people started to get interested in this subculture.
With the spread of the internet, the social media and the development of digital music production tools, many producers found the opportunity to finally build up a career in this exciting industry, and the biggest festivals in the world, such as Tomorrowland, EDC or Ultra went along with the flow and experienced a massive growth to support the rise of these artists.
Afrojack and Ferry Corsten were part of this from the beginning. Along came Carl Cox, who played a key role in the evolution of Ultra Music Festival, with his unique concept of the Carl Cox & Friends Arena. The festival skyrocketed and everyone wanted to be there. Fedde Le Grand, Swedish House Mafia, they all contributed to the rise of the festival. Ultra became an institution for electronic dance music lovers. And the rest is history.
