COMMUNITY: Ultra Music Festival 2013 Confirms Phase 1 Line-Up With Additions!

Ultra Music Festival 2013 Confirms Phase 1 Line-Up With Additions!

New Year’s weekend saw the much-anticipated Phase 1 Lineup of Ultra Music Festival’s Miami showdown make its way around the World Wide Web like wildfire after Avicii leaked the lineup online. If there was ever an excuse to slap ‘viral’ on an announcement then this was it! One week after the Internet frenzy, and the world’s premier electronic dance music festival can now confirm artists that will be performing throughout the 6-day/2-weekend marathon of sound, light and dance. Over the weekends of March 15-17 and March 22-24, Downtown Miami plays host to the event’s 15th year with an unparalleled bill of the best DJs, live acts and future talent this planet has to offer.

The world is already aware that this year’s edition of the iconic festival will mark the final curtain for Swedish House Mafia, who’ve chosen Ultra Music Festival as the ‘One Last Tour’ finale to end where it once began (Ultra Music Festival at Bicentennial Park in 2010).  Expect an unforgettable performance created specially for Ultra Music Festival by deadmau5, one of the industry’s most in-demand talents who returns to close out both Saturday nights.  Luminaries who have aided in shaping the movement make appearances across BOTH weekends include Tiësto, David Guetta, Armin van Buurenand Avicii as well as (in alphabetical order): Above & Beyond, Afrojack, Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim, Kaskade, Knife Party and Richie Hawtin. Of course, Ultra Music Festival wouldn’t be complete without the essential Carl Cox & Friends Arena, which has been announced in addition to Armin van Buuren’s (the world’s #1 DJ) A State Of Trance 600 Arena.  Mixmag—the world’s indispensible clubbing bible—will also slam into the sunshine with an area of their own and who can forget the #1 club in the world, Space Ibiza, bringing Phase 1 of Ultra’s 15th Anniversary to close with the return of their own Space Ibiza Arena.

It is not only the cosmic DJ talent that ensures Ultra Music Festival’s growth year after year, it’s also the LIVE elements that entice thousands of revelers to the Festival’s sun-kissed terrain.   This year, and again in alphabetical order, live performances includes:The Bloody Beetroots, Booka Shade, Boys Noize, Crystal Castles, Disclosure, DJ Fresh Live, Hot Chip, Major Lazer, Matt & Kim, Modestep, Rudimental, Thievery Corporation, and Yeasayer. All acts are confirmed to make appearances; some returning after more than a year’s absence and some making grand debuts, thus proving the forward-thinking and finger-on-the-pulse nature of Ultra’s festival organizers.  These lineups showcase Ultra’s ability to consistently deliver on talent, both fresh and established! 

With all this in mind, let’s not forget this is only Phase 1 of a complete line-up of what is surely to go down as one of ULTRA’s greatest line-ups ever! For now, to enhance the already soaring excitement, you can enjoy another exquisite visual experience from UMF TV and Final Kid’s Charly Friedrichs, director of the epic Ultra Music Festival experience film, “CAN U FEEL IT.”  Get ready for a no holds barred indulgence!

About ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL: 

As the world’s most famous outdoor electronic music festival, ULTRA has won “Best Music Event” by the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) six consecutive years, from 2005 to 2011, “Best International Dance Music Festival” by the Ibiza DJ Awards in 2008 and “Best Festival” by the Village Voice Media New Times consecutively five years running from 2005 through 2009.

Originally created as a pure electronic music festival in 1999, ULTRA has grown through the years to present not only the genre’s hottest, biggest and best headlining artists (The Prodigy, Swedish House Mafia, The Chemical Brothers, Tiësto, Avicii, David Guetta, deadmau5, Underworld, Kraftwerk, Armin van Buuren, Carl Cox, Moby, Fatboy Slim and Justice to name a few), but also crossover headline bands that incorporate electronic elements in their music and have a history or new beginning in the dance music community and culture (The Cure, The Killers, New Order, Duran Duran, The Black Eyed Peas, Erasure, M83, Santigold, The Ting Tings, Cut Copy, Empire of the Sun and Bloc Party).

In 2012, global icon Madonna appeared as a special surprise guest—the festival’s gift to their fans. The Queen Of Pop introduced the main stage final headlining artist AVICII and joined him behind the decks to premiere his UMF remix of her single “Girl Gone Wild.” The year also was the subject of CAN U FEEL IT, a major documentary feature about the festival, which was shown in over 500 theatres across America. Together with its signature and progressive productions, ULTRA is unrivalled by consistently presenting the world’s greatest, most diverse EDM line-ups year after year. In 2013 it enters its 15th year in existence, becoming the first ever EDM festival to expand to two weekends with dates set for March 15, 16 and 17 and March 22, 23 and 24. A global brand, ULTRA WORLDWIDE takes place on 4 continents in 7 countries; Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Europe (Croatia), Ibiza, Korea, Miami.

COMMUNITY: Chris Lake New Single “Build Up” + Upcoming Tour Dates

Chris Lake New Single “Build Up”
From His Highly Anticipated New Album
Upcoming Tour Dates
Chris Lake – Build Up (Ultra Records) OFFICIAL TEASER

Chris Lake Photo

Following the success of his debut single for Ultra Music, Chris Lake returns with “Build Up,” the follow-up to “Sundown” and the second single to be taken from his forthcoming album for the label.

“Build Up” epitomizes exactly why Chris Lake has been garnering so much attention of late with his huge house sound. Opening on a clipped rhythm and taut arpeggios, the distorted synth swathes open up the track as it breaks down letting the gorgeous vocal from GiTA float through the mix. Continuing to build layers of percussion and color, the lead synths burst through the track as the drum line kicks back in and the sidechained bass swells through the low end, giving it a powerful and expansive energy that is guaranteed to cause an impact on the dance floor.

Tommy Trash joins in the action with his edit. Keeping true to the vibe of the original, he pares back the synth lines allowing the streamlined rhythm and gritty bass tones to strike through the mix. Eventually he unleashes those synths in a flurry of colour and re-ignited vigour, kicking things up a gear to play out the track.

Pete Tong, a lasting champion of Lake’s music, aired the track on his Radio 1 show on Friday, and the track has been getting support from Tiesto, David Guetta, Avicii, Andi Durrant, Norman Doray & Arno Cost to name a few.

In the US, Chris has two Billboard Dance Airplay #1’s under his belt, and “Build Up” shows already signs of being the third.
