In another incredible move from the American festival juggernaut, whose unique lineups have always been praised for their diversity, innovation and forward-thinking LIVE programming, Ultra Music Festival 2016 will see the return of three of the most revered LIVE acts in the history of electronic music.
The outdoor electronic music fest is renowned for highlighting an incredible variety of the most celebrated DJs. Award-winning English electronic music group The Prodigy, dubbed “The Godfathers of Rave”, will revisit the stage with “their industrial brand of rock-tinged electronica” after the release of their new album.
The Ultra Music Festival will also feature the reuniting of electronic group Rabbit in the Moon, which will perform in its first live show since 2010, and the return of legendary Australian/British drum and bass group Pendulum.
The past several years have been momentous for the Ultra Music Festival as its 43 year-old co-founder Alex Omes was found dead in January 2015. Additionally, in 2014, the festival invoked a minimum age of attendance for the first time in fifteen years and multiple negative incidents sparked controversy and an attempt to ban the festival from the city.
The annual Miami-based festival, which unleashes during Miami Music Week, will take place on March 18, 19, and 20, 2016 as the largest EDM festival in the country.
