Ultra Music Festival has become one of the premiere dance and electronic music festivals in the nation, taking place for three days on March 23-25 in Miami, Florida. Of course, they can’t make this sort of reputation without producing a stacked lineup year in and year out, and 2012 will be no different.
Headlining the festival will be Kraftwerk, Justice, David Guetta, Tiesto, Avicii, and Armin Van Buren, with other notable acts including New Order, Fatboy Slim, M83, Little Dragon, Neon Indian, Afrojack, Miike Snow, Pretty Lights, Flying Lotus, Metronomy, Skrillex, Kaskade, Bassnectar, SBTRCT, and many more. Check out the full lineup on that fancy poster above.
Tickets for the party start at $295.00 and can be found by navigating the festival’s website. Also, keep in mind that Ultra is usually a pretty good indicator as to what will be making up the dance scene at Coachella, as well as other major music festivals. 2012 should be pretty great.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
