The promoters for the ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL (UMF) have unveiled the third and final phase of artists confirmed for the world’s premier electronic music festival, taking place Friday, March 26 and Saturday, March 27 at Bicentennial Park in Miami. Set to join previously announced headliners Tiësto and Deadmau5, along with LIVE headliners Faithless Sound System, Groove Armada and Orbital are LMFAO, Sander Kleinenberg, Josh Wink, Hybrid (DJ set) Tania Vulcano, Afrojack and more.
Adding to one of the strongest and most diverse electronic line-ups ever assembled are Florence from Florence and the Machine, who will perform with Swedish House Mafia on the Ultra Main Stage Saturday, March 27, and Kelis, who is set to team with Benny Benassi for several songs as well. On the same day, Hybrid will headline with a DJ set on the UMF Radio stage in support of their new album Disappear Here, out March 29 on Distinctive Records. Joining all the artists on the new Ultra Main Stage is Vello Virkhaus (VJV2) who is set to pilot both days. Ultra Music Festival will be the only place fans can experience these artists during Winter Music Conference.
The event promoters have also announced the addition of four new arenas to the festival grounds: the UMF Ibiza Tent presented by Space Ibiza, the UMF Brasil Tent presented by We Love Brasil & Green Valley, the Root Society Dome and the Heineken Dome Experience. The UMF Ibiza Tent is the result of a new partnership between UMF Ibiza and Club Space Ibiza, bringing the Space Ibiza party to Miami. The party is set to continue throughout the summer as UMF travels to Ibiza to host the Space Ibiza Opening, Anniversary and Closing Parties.
The Root Society Dome has been described as “the biggest party dome on the planet.” Of teaming with UMF, Root Society founder Captain Jeff Taylor says, “I know ULTRA is the place to release the Root Society brand after 7 years in the desert sanctuary Burning Man. If you’re addicted to bass, you will be in this dome!”
Another addition to UMF is artist/composer Christopher Janney’s installation Sonic Forest which provides an interactive, aural and visual component that will entice festival goers into a unique environment. Triggered by both public interaction and electronic instruments, Sonic Forrest is composed of 16 eight-foot tall aluminum poles that contain audio speakers, lights and photo-electric cells. As people move closely by these “electronic trees,” they trigger both melodic and environmental sounds, in a sense “playing the forest.” When no one is moving in the space, the piece generates a series of preprogrammed patterns. During various parts of the installation, independent drummers join the environment, turning the Forest into a dance festival unto itself. Over the past five years, Sonic Forest has been featured at Bonnaroo, All Points West and Coachella in the US, as well as the Download Festival, Hyde Park Calling, Wireless and Glastonbury Festivals in the U.K., the Lowlands Festival in the Netherlands and the Zaragoza World’s Fair in Zaragoza, Spain.
Tickets for the world’s leading two-day electronic and alternative music experience are available now exclusively through www.ultramusicfestival.com. Two-day general admission tickets are $139.95. Two-day VIP tickets are also available for $350.00.
