This year's Ultra Music Festival was great, but one performance left us sad and wanting.
M83 was scheduled to perform an hour-long set on the second day, but due to some technical difficulties, the audience was given a bittersweet two song performance. It was probably one of the best, if not for its awful abruptness.
After the shorten set, we asked Anthony Gonzalez and the rest if they had any plans to come back to Miami and make it up to us, and today we finally have our answer.
"Our deepest apologies to the crowd who waited so patiently while we tried to fix the problems," the band said in March. "We hope we will be able to return to Florida and play the full set. It was very sad to us to travel so far and play such a short set."
It was very sad to all of us, but come September 26, we can put it all in the past. The French indie pop will be properly unleashed at the cozy Filmore Miami Beach, where assuredly all steps will be taken to ensure there isn't another technical debacle.
