Ultra released its 2019 lineup, and it is a sight to behold. After months of speculation over a new venue, and overall catharsis once the festival decided on Virginia Key as its new location, Ultra made up for the slight bump in the road with a diverse phase one lineup featuring the best EDM, techno, and live performers. 

Headliners include Afrojack, Alesso, Armin van Buuren, The Chainsmokers, David Guetta, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, NGHTMRE + SLANDER present: Gud Vibrations, REZZ, Testpilot, Tiësto, Zedd and Zeds Dead. 

Ultra’s best kept worldwide secret, Resistance, is back and is not shy with the stacked number of techno DJs who bounce from Ibiza to Miami. DJs include Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Jamie Jones B2B Joseph Capriati, Maceo Plex, The Martinez Brothers, and a special B2B for legendary pioneers Sasha & John Digweed. Techno warriors Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, and Paco Osuna will also join with a B3B set. The festival will also see Loco Dice, Richie Hawtin, and Tale of Us. If you are not sold on the new location in Virginia Key, how does the fact that Resistance will be hosted on its own island with extended hours sound?  

You can also expect to see a new stage. Live Arena will showcase the behemoth’ of live music like Galantis, Louis the Child, Odesza, Infected Mushroom, and Deadmau5 who will bring his Cube 3.0 stage production to the shores of Virginia Key. 

Change can always be nerve-racking, but perhaps a new location is what Ultra needed. As always, expect sold out tickets and the unexpected. 

Ultra Music Festival takes place March 29, 30, and 31 on Virginia Key. Ticket are on sale now.
