John Dellepiane's insight:

Ultra Music Festival is looking to expand in more countries in 2014. I believe that this is a great idea due to the fact that not many people can travel long distances to go to a music festival. There should be more festivals because its a great experience and they are loads of fun comming from myself that I go to many festivals.

Josh Loomis's curator insight, December 4, 2013 12:11 PM

Of course, Ultra comes with a rather steep price to pay for the total enjoyment of the three day weekend. Sure they get amazing numbers of attendance, but there are teams devoted to complaints and devising new ways to attract more people and make the experience as great as it should be. Payment options have been implimented this year for the first time.

Eric Gray's curator insight, May 18, 2014 7:59 PM

I thought this was an interesting new innovation for making payment for expensive tickets. A good way to let more people afford the tickets to an amazing show while tickets are expensive this payment plan should make it easier for more people to afford it and offers a larger quantity of tickets to be sold increasing profit margins
