Yelling across a crowd of thousands, no microphone needed

Every year hundreds of thousands of people attend the Ultra Festival, an outdoor event in Miami, Florida featuring some of the best electronic music in the world.  Thousands of photos, messages and videos are shared and millions around the world interact with them, quickly slowing down bandwidth and making it hard to communicate with other attendees.  /ultrafest is an easy way to create a main hub that’s specific to the people actually on the festival grounds.  Sponsors and organizers can communicate directly with fans that are there,   and if you’re a fan that’s trying to coordinate with a couple of friends you can create /u/mandy-guillermo-4716 right from /ultrafest so you can meet up at the NW corner stage.

Informal gatherings

Started in 1992 in San Francisco, Critical Mass is a loosely       organized ride that happens the last Friday of each month in           cities around the world.

The rides range from a few hundred to a few thousand people, and   are a way for both experienced and new riders to meet each other   and develop a community around cycling.  /critical-mass-miami is       an example of how you might use Localweb.is for casual meetups – enabling members of the group to quickly post directions, add     photos of safety and traffic conditions, and agree on a place to hangout afterwards.
