Ultra Music Festival lineup: Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Avicii, deadmau5, Fatboy Slim, more coming to Miami
Hey, do you like electronic music? You do? Cool, because this year's Ultra Music Festival decided to book all of it.
Seriously: You'd be hard-pressed to name a major name in EDM that ISN'T spinning at this year's Ultra, which is spread out over two weekends, March 15-17 and March 22-24 in Miami.
The festival's biggest get is a farewell performance from Swedish House Mafia, but honestly, every other DJ you've ever heard of will be there: Skrillex, David Guetta, Avicii, deadmau5, Fatboy Slim, Bassnectar, Steve Aoki, Armin Van Buuren, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Carl Cox, Pretty Lights, Kaskade, Major Lazer, Boyz Noize, Zedd ... there is simply no stopping this lineup, and it's not even complete -- a third phase has yet to be announced. Maybe they can go ahead and book Daft Punk and that will be the end of all electronic music forever.
(Almost as if to rub it in, organziers also pulled in a festival-worthy lineup of non-EDM acts, including Snoop Dogg, Sleigh Bells, Azealia Banks, The Weeknd, Yeasayer, Thievery Corporation, Matt and Kim and Hot Chip. Pretty crazy.)
Ultra tickets are notoriously tough to get -- it sells out every year -- but there are apparently still passes available right now, starting at $299.99 per weekend. Click here for details.
