Ultra Music Festival 2012 was an absolute masterpiece. Unbelievable artists, unbelievable moments. Keep reading to find out EDM Charts’ official take on the top #5 sets at UMF.

#1 Armin van Buuren | Closing Set of UMF 2012

Is this guy not a legend? What a phenomenal closing set. Probably one of the best moments of the set was Armin dropping the John O’Callaghan remix of “Concrete Angel”. Armin is the most epic closer right now in EDM.

#2 Fedde le Grand | Paradise

Fedde’s set was one for the ages. Dropping huge hits like “Praise You”, “Metrum”, and his famous remix of “Paradise” caused for a raging crowd. This is why he always gets the main stage.

#3 Steve Aoki | Cake in the Face

Aoki is the best in the business at interacting with his crowds. What may go down as the craziest moment at UMF 2012, he caked two members of the crowd and did some “rafting”. It is also important to mention that his set was great and included some great guest vocals like Polina, Wynter Gordon and Miss Palmer.

#4 Afrojack | 10 New Songs

Afrojack was dropping one new song after another. In addition, he managed to take down a half bottle of Grey Goose. Afrojack and Lil’ Jon got the crowd pumped beyond belief with his new material.

#5 Bingo Players | Rattle

Bingo Players comes in at the surprising #5 spot. They made it “Rattle” with an electro house set full of bass. Superb mixing complemented by a great set list made this one of the acts not to be missed.

      Thanks for your response Nik. As we all know, music is somewhat of a qualitative subject matter. At the end of the day it comes down to personal preference. There’s never a right or wrong answer, but this is how we felt at EDM Charts.
