Ultra Adds Duran Duran to Bill

Ultra Adds Duran Duran to Bill

by Pete Tremblay

Ultra Music Conference has announced the second string of major acts to sign on to America’s largest electronic music festival. Following suit of the last few years, the phase two line-up release has indicated that Ultra will bring in a more eclectic group of artists to their stages at the end of March.

Most notably, '80s new wave pioneers Duran Duran will be joining the festival this year. The unmistakable masters of reinvention have crossed genres on their 13th studio record due in large part to a partnership with the legendary electronic producer Mark Ronson, who manned the boards for the bands forth coming release, “All You Need is Now.”

Ultra has also announced that the festival has added even more of the world’s greatest electronic performers to the incredible bill, already headlined by deadmau5, Tiësto, the Chemical Brothers, and David Guetta. Underworld, Armin van Buuren, Moby, Kaskade, Erick Morillo, will.i.am, Sasha, Vortek, The Disco Biscuits, Avicii, Fedde Le Grand, ATB, The Glitch Mob, Scream! & Benga, and more have been added to the three-day electronic music extravaganza for 2011. In addition, this year’s UMF marks the debut of live shows by Erick Morillo and Sasha (Vortek).

If trance is more your speed, then Ultra 2011 is the place to get lost in the sound. International trance guru Armin Van Buuren is slated to bring his “A State of Trance” syndicated radio show to life at Ultra 2011. In the “A State of Trance 500” area, Van Buuren will be joined live by a drove of titular trance technicians such, as Ferry Corsten, ATB, Gareth Emrey, Sander Van Doorn, and others promise to make you forget the rest of the world exists.

Ultra Music Festival runs from March 25th through March 27th 2011 at Bicentennial Park, downtown Miami, Florida.
