Ultra Returns with 3-Days of Electronic Acts

Ultra Music Festival is beginning to take on a life of its own. While the locals in Miami still remember its humble beginnings, the legions of recent electronic music fans now have their focus on what could be one of the biggest music festivals in the country, and one of the top electronic dance music events in the world. While it only featured electronic dance music acts in the beginning, it now brings in live performances by world-renown acts like the Black Eyed Peas, The Ting Tings and Santigold. This year's scheduled festival is really looking to up the anti as they've expanded the event to three days for the first time ever, taking on other behemoth national festival such as Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.

While many think that they may be straying a bit from their full-on EDM music format, that's not the case. This year's festival boasts some of the best names the festival's seen to date, as well as regulars including Carl Cox, Tïesto, deadmau5 and David Guetta. But while booking the Black Eyed Peas may have seemed a bit odd in 2009, it's fair to say that we won't be seeing headliners outside of EDM for years to come. Although this year features some acts that may not be clear-cut EDM acts, including !!! and Klaxons, they too have an electronic component.

After this year's date debacle with Winter Music Conference and Ultra, it's fair to say that Ultra's finally looking to branch out on its own and become the festival that it's always known it could grow into. We'll definitely be in attendance and suggest you do the same.
