Brazil had the milestone honor of being Ultra Music Festival's first international expansion back in 2008. Since, UMF has seen many successful additions all around the globe, and in 2016, sights are set for the festival to make an official return back to Brazil.
The city of Rio De Janeiro will be home to quite a few exciting events this year, most recently receiving Ultra Music Festival's official Brazil edition later this year in October. Just a few months before, Rio will also play host to the 2016 Olympics in August.
