Some of the festival’s favorites will present in 2018 including Armin van Buuren, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, David Guetta, Eric Prydz, Hardwell, DJ Snake, Tiësto just to name a few. Also returning to Ultra for the first time since 2016 are The Chainsmokers and Kaskade as well as Flosstradamus and RL Grime who are returning for their first time since 2014. The twentieth birthday bash will see some debuts from Marshmello and Virtual who are headlining in March.
Ultra’s Live Stage is a fan favorite and tends to receive extra attention. It will have headliners such Azealia Banks, The Crystal Method and Empire Of The Sun making appearances on that stage. Empire of the Sun recently released their third studio album titled Two Vines last month and will have a few new tracks to perform at Ultra.
