With Ultra kicking off the start of festival season with a 3-day weekend packed with the biggest names in the EDM scene right now, it's totally understandable that some people are experiencing complete and utter #FOMO. But fear not my pretty little ravers, this is where UMFTV comes in. So let's weigh the pros and cons of watching Ultra in the privacy of your own home vs. actually being immersed in the action.
1. You don't have to worry about being pushed, pulled, and/or shoved while trying to catch of glimpse of your favorite artist.
One of the most frustrating things at festivals is how crowded the stages get. Consequently, you are constantly being pushed and shoved and making way for people trying to get out. By watching UMFTV you can sit back, relax, and just enjoy the show.
2. You don't have to be embarrassed about your super white-girl dance moves.
If you're like me, then you embody what it means to white-girl dance, you have zero rhythm, but you like to think you can twerk, booty pop, and things of that nature. In the confines of your own home, you can dance all you want and the best part is no one can see you! So dance around naked, sing the lyrics to "Come and get it" into your hair brush, and own it!
3. You literally have the best view in the house
Unless you're front row, on someones shoulders, or backstage, chances are you're looking at the back of people's heads and occassionally seeing the DJ in full view. UMFTV gives you tons of different perspectives, but also allows you to SEE THE DJ. You're really getting the best views you don't have to worry about that really tall girl with the butterfly wings on getting on Thor's shoulders and blocking your entire view.
1. You are most likely watching in your room, by yourself.
Half the fun of festivals come from the people you go with. Whether it's your best friend or a group of people, being with your friends just make the experience that much better.
2. You don't get to dress up
Now, the other half comes from picking out an outfit to wear. This is your time to shine, so you work that bikini, see-through shirt, g-string, and pasties! You get to go all out and no one can judge you. Chances are you're watching UMFTV in your PJ's and your still in bed, and that's not really that fun.
3. It really just isn't the same
Let's be completely honest, the excitement, anticipation, and shock that come with festivals is something that you just have to experience in person. Watching Ultra online doesn't do it any justice. Between the lights, the music, the vibes and energy, being there is almost like having an out of body experience.
If you're not at Ultra this year, hopefully you will be next year. It is definitely an event that cannot be missed. But for now, keep watching UMFTV.
