Ultra Music Festival 2011

Tickets for Ultra Music Festival officially went on sale earlier this week. Early bird tickets sold out in LESS THAN 4 HOURS «OMG»

This year Ultra is 3 days long and will take place the last weekend in March (25-27). Fortunately, the event resides in Miami so I will be right in the center of it all! (OBVIOUSLY I already purchased my ticket because this year’s lineup is going to be the most epic of all). Although the lineup is not announced until March, some Ultra veterans can be guaranteed like Tiesto, Carl Cox, Moby etc. and others are guaranteed based on current popularity such as DeadMau5 and David Guetta. What about everyone else? Who will fill the 3rd day spot? Well, I have a few predictions that I have put together based on 1) reliable sources 2) common sense 3) intuition. The following is a comprehensive list of my predictions for Ultra 2011 (NOTE:I will be updating this list as artist names are confirmed/released):

Confirmed:

1. As of this morning, Röyksopp has confirmed to fans via e-mail that they will be playing at Ultra this year. This is so exciting! I didn’t originally have them on my list but it makes total sense since they did release their 4th studio album, Senior, earlier this year.

2. Crystal Castles has also confirmed they will be playing Ultra again in 2011.

3. CHEMICAL BROTHERS CONFIRMED AS A HEADLINER (11/22) http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/crossfade/2010/11/the_chemical_brothers_headline.php

Predicted:

Based on last year’s lineup, here is a list of the artists I think will return for 2011(not including aforementioned):

1. Bassnectar

2. Caspa

3. Rusko

4. Steve Aoki

5. Wolfgang Gartner

6. DJ A-Trak

7. Diplo

8. Infected Mushroom

9. Lotus

10.Afrojack

11. Swedish House Mafia -NOT PLAYING ULTRA

12. Crystal Method

13. Disco Biscuits

14. Pretty Lights

15. Ghostland Observatory

16. Crookers

17. Bloody Beetroots

18. Eric Prydz

19. Afrobeta

20. Laidback Luke

21. Will. I .Am

22. Kaskade

23. Armin Van Buuren

24.  Skream

25. Sub Focus

(Missing artists but these are the ones I’m familiar with/care about)

Predicted: The following is a list of artists that a) did not attend Ultra last year and b) will probably be performing for the 3 day extravaganza:

1.Daft Punk and Muse as headliners for Day 3: A reliable source (her husband works in the marketing department for Ultra Records) told me that Daft Punk and Muse could very possibly be Day 3 headliners. If this actually happens, I won’t even be able to comprehend what is going on and will my brain will probably begin to spontaneously excrete thoughts and noises all over the place.

2. M.I.A- with her second album release this past summer, there’s no way M.I.A will not be in the MIA for Ultra performing these tracks.

3. DJ Chuckie- The dirty Dutch deejay himself has been making serious (dance) moves in the second half of 2010. He will be a definite on the Ultra lineup-no questions asked!

4. The Chemical Brothers- I recently just acquired all the discography for The Chemical Brothers and listened to most of their albums on a road trip I took a few months ago. It was the BEST fucking road trip ever, and I was alone. I fell in love with the group and have reason to believe they could be making an appearance since they released an album earlier this year

5. Fat Boy Slim- Because Aleah says so, and she’s fucking awesome!

6. Aeroplane- Not only is Aeroplane signed to Ultra records, but Vito Aeroplane has been ALL OVER THE PLACE this year remixing track after track AND came out with a studio album too!

7. Phoenix- Last year hottest indie band, Passion Pit, was the eyebrow raiser when added to the list. Don’t doubt that this genre of music will be making another appearance this year but this time in the form of Phoenix

8. Breakbot- he’s been all over the place in 2010

9. Flying Lotus- The L.A native had a HUGE year, hopefully he will bringing some of that Cosmogramma to MIA

Wishful Thinking ( A list of artists that I have reason to believe will a) not be at Ultra but b) I would love to see them there:

1. Basement Jaxx (even though they are signed to Ultra Records, I do not think they will be on the list—insert sad face here—)

2.SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA WILL NOT BE PLAYING ULTRA- http://newsroom.mtv.com/2010/12/13/swedish-house-mafia-leave-ultra-music-festival-behind/
