Goner to Miami: Evan Miller of L.A. hip-hop/pop project Goner told us about his Ultra Music Fest experience.
Evan Miller: The best gig i’ve ever witnessed has to be Ultra Music Festival in Miami 2018. I was a photographer at the time, before even starting music myself & capturing the wide variety of artists at that festival definitely lit a fire in me. The way you could find every “vibe” based by stage, and the radiating joy of everyone enjoying music together. Seeing artists such as Marshmello, the Chainsmokers and even speaking with G-Eazy inspired me to start making my own music, because I could then see what it truly meant for everyone around.
I think it’s beautiful to see thousands of people happy & feeling the energy of their favorite artists all together under one roof or venue. With Ultra being located in Miami for this specific event, the backdrop of Miami and the ocean made it all the better. I will always be grateful that I got to experience it & I’ve never had such an impact made on me from so many different artists, vendors, and fans (plus at the time some fellow photographers). I hope one day I’m able to bring my music full circle & play a set at Ultra, until then I’ll always be enjoying and reminiscing on the experience.
