Ultra Music Festival, Miami, FloridaULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES PHASE 1 LINE UP!

2011 was an incredible year for festivals and electronic music. With the New Year rapidly approaching, all eyes are focused on what’s to come next with the leader being ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL (ULTRA), the world’s premiere electronic music event. Tickets are moving at lightning speed, only a limited amount remain (with early bird and advance on-sale tickets selling out in record time), so the promoters are highly encouraging fans not to miss out by unveiling the majority of the ULTRA line up on the Phase 1 announcement.

ULTRA is also returning to downtown Miami with Bayfront Park as it’s new location in order to accommodate a larger footprint for increased capacity. Over the last few years, the festival took place at Bicentennial Park but after reaching record-breaking 150,000 in attendance this year, and becoming the first ever, and only 3-day music festival of its kind to completely sell out 150,000 tickets six weeks in advance, ULTRA is moving next door to the tropical, waterfront park nestled between Biscayne Bay and Biscayne Boulevard. The ULTRA team is taking it back to Bayfront, where it last took place in 2005, transforming and customizing the park in a way never seen before.

Confirmed talent for each day of ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL is:

FRIDAY, MARCH 23
Tiesto, Kraftwerk, Carl Cox, Skrillex, Afrojack, Miike Snow, Pretty Lights, New Order, Groove Armada (DJ Set), Dirty South, Loco Dice, A-Trak, Dada Life, Porter Robinson, Neon Indian, Jack Beats, Chris Lake, Michael Woods, Nicky Romero, Tommy Trash, Katy B, DJ Icey, The Knocks, Afrobeta, Jon Rundell

SATURDAY, MARCH 24
Justice Live, Avicii, Fatboy Slim, Duck Sauce, M83., Sven Vath, Carl Cox, Laidback Luke, 2manydjs (live), Flux Pavillion, Borgore, Doctor P, Metronomy, Little Dragon, Hardwell, Datsik, Andy C, Zeds Dead, 12th Planet, Magda, Skream! + Benga, Zedd, Mord Fustang, Cedric Gervais, Netsky, High Contrast, Mt. Eden, Camo & Krooked, Big Chocolate, Carbon Airways, Yousef

SUNDAY, MARCH 25
David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade, Bassnectar, Chase and Status (live), Bloody Beetroots (DJ Set), Fedde Le Grand, Knife Party, Magnetic Man, John Digweed, Steve Aoki, Ferry Corsten, Gareth Emery, Sander Van Doorn, Flying Lotus, SBTRKT (live), Adam Beyer, Steve Lawler, Joris Voorn, Jamie, Jones, Seth Troxler, Damian Lazarus, Nic Fanciulli, Layo & Bushwacka!, Marcus Schossow, Popof, Art Department, Big Gigantic, Savoy (live), Tritonal, Jochen Miller, Keys n Krates, Elio Riso, Remo, Eco, RioTGeaR

Also returning is the Ultra Mega Structure, which will feature specialty areas each day. One of the few artists to appear at ULTRA almost every year, staple CARL COX returns with the CARL COX & FRIENDS arena Friday and CARL COX PRESENTS COCOON featuring SVEN VATH Saturday. ARMIN VAN BUUREN’s A STATE OF TRANCE 550 will take over Sunday.

With all this and much more, ULTRA has cemented itself as the premium festival for fans of club culture and the electronic genre and artists influenced by the music on a massive scale. More acts will be announced in the coming weeks leading up to the festival.
