Unleashing the Ultimate Music Experience
By Laura Muensterer

It’s only January, but college students are already making plans for Spring Break.

Disco Donnie Presents and Global Groove Events has announced the return of the Ultimate Music Experience on March 16th-19th, 2016 in South Padre Island, Texas.

For the sixth year in a row, thousands of spring breakers will gather, far away from their college campuses, along the fantastical shores of South Padre Island to the one and only Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark to have their nights serenaded by crowd-pleasing headliners from every edge of the globe.


According to the waterpark’s website, Schlitterbahn offers festival goers “a 25-acre beachfront paradise and the most popular waterpark in the Rio Grande Valley.”

For four days, EDM lovers will hear sets from the likes of DJ Snake, Kaskade, Porter Robinson and more.

Still not convinced? You can check out Disco Donnie’s incredibly exhibiting trailer for UME 2016 here.

“UME is all about the people that are there, making sure that everyone is immersed in the music and making sure that everyone is enjoying the journey,” a girl says in the trailer.

“Global Group has put so much effort into making sure that UME is about you and me and that [every attendee is] enjoying the experience.”

And I couldn’t agree more. After last year’s experience, I can’t wait to see what PLUR stories and rave memories I am going to make this time around in South Padre Island, Texas.

Tickets are now available and you can buy them here.
