Bellydancers & Backlava: Ultra Trends

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UFL chapter.


March is an amazing month in the lives of college students. Not only does it include spring break and march madness (not to mention, my birthday), but it’s also when one of the most popular music festivals on the western hemisphere takes place: Ultra. I thought it would be great to pinpoint a couple music festival trends that are sure to make you stand out in an atmosphere full of tutus, DeadMau5 masks, and flowered bras.
