Scheduled for March 25-27 at Bicentennial Park, Ultra likes to call itself the “First Major U.S. Music Festival of 2011.” While we’ll leave it up to you to decide whether that particular description is accurate, you gotta admit the initial list of artists and bands is definitely top notch and includes Tiësto (March 25), Deadmau5 (March 26), The Chemical Brothers (March 27), David Guetta (March 27), Carl Cox (March 25) and Empire Of The Sun (March 26).
Also included in the “second phase” lineup rollout is Kaskade, Erick Morillo, will.i.am, Sasha, The Disco Biscuits, Avicii, Fedde le Grand, ATB, The Glitch Mob, Scream! & Benga and more.
New to the electronic music festival, which expands to three days for the first time in its history, is the addition of Armin Van Buuren’s “A State Of Trance 500” for March 27. Named after his syndicated radio show, Van Buuren will be joined by several artists, including Ferry Corsten, Gareth Emry and Sander Van Doorn.
Three-day combo and VIP tickets are available for a limited time. For more information, visit the Ultra Music Festival website.
