Ultra Korea Announces 2013 Headliners: Armin Van Buuren, Carl Cox, and Avicii
Ultra Music Festival may have caught a little flak for expanding its Miami presence to two weekends, but nothing can stop UMF from total world domination.
Did you know the Ultra brand takes its good time to four continents? There are Ultra fests in Brazil, Chile, Spain, and even Seoul, South Korea.
Yep, Ultra Korea is returning Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15, after last year's successful debut brought 60,000 partiers to the country's Olympic Stadium Complex.
Obviously, Ultra plants to continue building its brand as the "must attended" dance music event in Asia, and festival organizers just announced the 2013 headliners.
This year, Ultra Korea will be helmed by none other than "the world's #1 DJ" Armin Van Buuren, the same superstar DJ who's got Miami excited about his A State Of Trance tour during Miami's own two-weekend party in March.
Buuren will also be joined in Seoul by the now-familiar headliner Avicii. The Swedish house giant will top the main stage on the festival's second day.
Of course, according to tried and true Ultra tradition, Carl Cox will be banging out the hits from his Carl Cox and Friends tent throughout the weekend.
Now, we all know Ultra loves surprises. So that's all we get to know of the fest's Korea lineup so far. But it's safe to say there will be plenty of uhntz-uhntz to come.
So stay tuned, kandi ravers.
Ultra Korea. With Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Carl Cox and Friends, and others. Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15. Tickets go on sale Monday, January 21. Visit umfkorea.com.
