Ultra Music Festival Reveals Phase One


EDM-heads are well aware that Ultra is just a few months away, and now the yearly, electronic dance music festival has unveiled who will be taking the stage in Miami.

Last year, the festival decided to take a different turn and make the event two weekends long rather than the usual jam-packed one weekend. This year, it looks like the festivities will once again be returning to its usual one weekend full of partying after trying out the overambitious idea.

The weekend which will happen during March, 28th, 29th and 30th and will feature headliners ranging from Avicii, Armin van Buuren, Afrojack, Hardwell, Steve Angello, and Tiësto, you know just some of the biggest DJs in the world as well as live acts including Chase & Status and MGMT.

Now, the line-up that has been revealed has been coined as “Phase One,” and that a “Phase Two” will be coming soon, so who knows what that might entail.
