Ultra Music Festival XIV unveils massive line-up: TiŽsto, Kraftwerk, Justice (Live), Avicii, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Carl Cox, Skrillex and more

2011 was an incredible year for festivals and electronic music.  With the New Year rapidly approaching, all eyes are focused on whatís to come next with the leader being Ultra Music Festival (ULTRA), the worldís premiere electronic music event. 

Only a limited amount of tickets remain (with early bird and advance on-sale tickets selling out in record time), so the promoters are highly encouraging fans not to miss out by unveiling the majority of the ULTRA line-up on the Phase 1 announcement.

ULTRA is also returning to downtown Miami with Bayfront Park as its new location in order to accommodate a larger footprint for increased capacity.

Over the last few years, the festival took place at Bicentennial Park, but after reaching a record-breaking 150,000 in attendance this year, and becoming the first ever, and only 3-day music festival of its kind to completely sell out 150,000 tickets six weeks in advance, ULTRA is moving next door to the tropical, waterfront park nestled between Biscayne Bay and Biscayne Boulevard.

The ULTRA team is taking it back to Bayfront, where it last took place in 2005, transforming and customizing the park in a way never seen before.

Each day will be helmed by world-class headliners:

TIňSTO and KRAFTWERK Friday, March 23;

JUSTICE (Live) and AVICII Saturday, March 24;

and DAVID GUETTA and ARMIN VAN BUUREN Sunday, March 25. 

Other confirmed talent, in every genre of electronic music imaginable, includes: a wide array of international leading electronic music performers including SKRILLEX, KASKADE, AFROJACK, PRETTY LIGHTS, DUCK SAUCE, THE BLOODY BEETROOTS (DJ Set), 2MANYDJS (Live), BASSNECTAR, CHASE & STATUS (Live), FEDDE LE GRAND, KNIFE PARTY and LAIDBACK LUKE; pioneering acts such as NEW ORDER, FATBOY SLIM, and SVEN VńTH; cutting-edge bands like M83, MIIKE SNOW, LITTLE DRAGON, NEON INDIAN and METRONOMY; and up-and-coming DJs such as SETH TROXLER and JAMIE JONES.
