As per usual, the biggest names in dance music are included on the Ultra Music Festival lineup. What might be pleasantly surprising to some are a few of the headliners that are mixed in with the David Guetta’s and Hardwell’s of the world. Ultra usually has a solid mix of genres and artists represented on the lineup, but this year seems to be more forward thinking than in the past.
It’s like a breath of fresh air to see Caribou listed on top, along with Dubfire, Maceo Plex, Tycho and Seth Troxler. It just shows how far these artists have come in the past few years. To be given a top slot is well deserving for all of them. Chet Faker and Miike Snow are also surprising additions to the lineup, let alone for them to be headlining. Ultra has really stepped it up this time and we can’t wait to get down there to experience it.
On a special note, The Prodigy will be making their long awaited return to Ultra and Pendulum will be reviving their live show for a rare performance that is sure to be a highlight. Also, Rabbit on The Moon is not to be missed with their surreal blend of psychedelic trance, house and breaks.
