Ultra Music Festival is one of the biggest dance music festivals in the world.

DJ Armin van Buuren is one of the biggest electronic music and trance producers in the world.

Why are we talking about this, you ask? 

Well, David Lee Roth from Van Halen turned up to the festival in Miami alongside Armin for a trance rendition of the 1983 classic "Jump", and it looks like it was heaps of fun!

Van Buuren talked to Rolling Stone about the song choice which he said "was an easy one to pick because I ask my crowd to jump, and the song has a deeper meaning, and I hope the kids get it when they hear the song, when they start to invest some time in the history of the song.

“This song has the tempo, which is very tempting. Actually, I don’t do many remixes, to be honest. Especially touching a song like this is very delicate. And that’s why I first sent it to the band before anything else, because I didn’t want to step on any toes. I know the legacy of the songs. Touching a song like this is kind of scary, because you know how many fans love the original.”

Watch the pair play the song to tens of thousands of ravers below.
