M83 on Ruined Ultra Music Festival 2012 Performance: "Our Deepest Apologies"

Read Crossfade's recap of M83's two-song set at Ultra 2012.

Ultra Music Festival is over. But we're still wondering about one thing: Will M83 be returning to Miami to make up for a ridiculously shortened Ultra set marred by technical difficulties?

Well, in a contrite statement that we just received from the band's label management, Anthony Gonzalez and crew address that question without making any concrete commitments.

"Due to technical difficulties we were not able to play our entire hour long set as we were most looking forward to at Ultra festival."

"Our deepest apologies to the crowd who waited so patiently while we tried to fix the problems. 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."

Now we would like to have received definite word that M83 would be making the trek back down to South Florida. But instead all we get is "hope."
