Bassnectar, Skrillex and Big Gigantic Will Join Tiesto, New Order, Kraftwerk and Justice at Ultra
The Ultra Music Festival will return to Miami from March 23-25. A a clear sign that electronic music is here for a while, the three-day event will move from its longtime Bicentennial Park home to the larger Bayfront Park.
The festival’s promoters explain, “Over the last few years, the festival took place at Bicentennial Park, but after reaching a 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.”
This year’s lineup will bring together the likes of Tiësto, New Order, Kraftwerk, Justice (Live), Fatboy Slim, M83, Neon Indian, Bassnectar, Little Dragon, Miike Snow, Avicii, David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Skrillex, Kaskade, Afrojack, Pretty Lights, Duck Sauce, The Bloody Beetroots (Dj Set), 2manydjs (Live), Bassnectar, SBTRKT, Chase & Status (Live), Fedde Le Grand, Knife Party and Laidback Luke. Continuing a booking trend that included the Disco Biscuits, Lotus and STS9, the festival has also booked Big Gigantic.
