Tiesto is arguably the most famous DJ in the world.
On March 26 and 27, the Ultra Music Festival closes out Miami's weeklong Winter Music Conference for electronic and dance music. Last year, it was estimated that more than 70,000 people attended, and the festival's popularity only seems to be increasing. As a byproduct of Ultra's success, the scope of sounds coming from the stages at the annual festival is becoming increasingly diverse. Though Ultra's roots are in house, trance and techno, this year's line-up mirrors dance music's recent tendency to mix genres.
Here are 10 songs from some of this year's performers, handpicked to showcase the range of styles featured at the festival.
