Ultra Music Festival 2016 Phase One Lineup: Eric Prydz, Caribou, Duke Dumont, AlunaGeorge, and More

Ultra Music Festival just dropped an early Christmas present for everyone — the phase one lineup, which includes a lot of familiar names with plenty of surprises spread throughout.

Afrojack, Tiësto, Avicii, Carl Coz, Knife Party, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, and more are all returning, and the will make plenty of festival-goers happy. But we are more excited by some of the not-so-usual suspects including Caribou, AlunaGeorge, Purity Ring, and a Rabbit in the Moon reunion.

Rabbit in the Moon will no doubt be one of the most anticipated performance at Ultra 2016. The drum 'n' bass/house pioneers played at the very first Ultra in 1999, back when it was a small beach party, and have been pretty inactive since 2010. Also returning to Ultra is the Prodigy, who released their sixth album, The Day Is My Enemy, this year. And what should be exciting to many is Pendulum's reunion. The Aussie/British drum ’n’ bass group hasn’t released any new music since 2011, so perhaps their appearance at Ultra will also include a follow-up to 2010’s Immersion. In all, it's looking to be a good Ultra for old-school dance music lovers.

Ultra 2016 will take place on March 18 through 20 at Bayfront Park. Tickets are now on sale now, starting at $324.95 plus fees for general admission and $1,249.95 plus fees for VIP. If you were hoping to score tickets via Ultra's payment plan, that option is no longer available.
