DJ Kaskade Ultra Music Festival Has to Stay in Miami

Las Vegas is nice and all ... but legendary deejay Kaskade thinks Ultra Music Festival belongs in Miami and NOWHERE else.

Our photog spotted Kaskade at LAX over the weekend and asked him about the recent comments from the mayor of Miami ... calling for an end to the popular electronic music festival that takes place in the city every year.

But Kaskade isn't open to the idea of moving the event, saying the mayor is overreacting and that he "can't even imagine" Ultra going down any place else.
