Ultra Music Festival expanding to two weekends in 2013
Just last week, the Electric Daisy Carnival unveiled the initial lineup for its second Orlando concert in November. On Monday, though, Miami's Ultra Music Festival came out with its own announcement that seems designed to prove there's still only one king when it comes to electronic music in Florida.
Much like Coachella 2012, Ultra 2013 will take place over two weekends, not just one -- March 15-17 and March 22-24. Considering Ultra sells out far in advance every single year, this may give you a slightly better chance of getting in. Still, we'd advise you to grab your early bird tickets as soon as they go on sale Wednesday -- last year's early bird tickets sold out in 10 minutes.
There's no lineup yet, but you can expect the biggest names in EDM to pop in. With hundreds of thousands of people expected to attend, this is far and away Florida's biggest and most influential music festival. Last year, for example, Madonna stopped by to hang out onstage with Avicii.
