ULTRA Worldwide’s esteemed underground concept, RESISTANCE is coming home in 2023. This spring, the global events brand debuts its inaugural U.S. residency at M2, the newest nightlife hotspot in Miami Beach. With an impressive first wave of Season 1 headliners and epic showcases scheduled for Miami Music Week, RESISTANCE Miami might become the hottest residency in the States.
