[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSU6WDekftU]With just three months until it touches down at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami, Ultra Worldwide’s flagship event ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL announces the electrifying Phase One lineup for its eighteenth annual edition, taking place on March 18, 19 and 20, 2016.
In another incredible move from the American festival juggernaut, whose unique lineups have always been praised for their diversity, innovation and forward-thinking LIVE programming, Ultra Music Festival 2016 will see the return of three of the most revered LIVE acts in the history of electronic music.
Dubbed “The Godfathers of Rave”, UK pioneers and award-winning outfit The Prodigy will be making their long awaited Ultra Music Festival return, as they prepare to entertain the ULTRA faithful with their industrial brand of rock-tinged electronica.
Next up, and for the first time since 2011, Australian Drum & Bass getup Pendulum will be heading back to Ultra Music Festival for a very special and rare live appearance. Often credited for the global popularization of the genre, fans can expect to witness a raw, high-octane live experience, rivaled by few others.
And, in a momentous nod to the festival’s very roots, the headline act for ULTRA’s very first edition, which took place on the sands of Miami Beach in 1999, will also be returning for their landmark reunion. None other than Rabbit In The Moon will be showcasing their visionary interpretation of psychedelic trance, house and breaks, as Ultranauts young and old prepare to witness a true slice of history.
Completing the LIVE programming for Phase One are additional headliners Caribou, Chet Faker, Destroid, Miike Snow, Nero, Purity Ring and Tycho. As ever, ULTRA will also be welcoming a huge array of the finest, most in-demand DJs on the planet. Headlining the festival across a broad selection of stages this March will be Afrojack, Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Carl Cox, David Guetta, Dubfire, Eric Prydz, Hardwell, Jamie Jones, Kaskade, Knife Party, Kygo, Loco Dice, Maceo Plex, Marco Carola, Martin Garrix, Seth Troxler, DJ Snake, Tiësto and Zedd.
