Ultra Music Festival 2017's Resistance Lineup: Sasha & Digweed, Carl Cox, Jamie Jones, and Others

Perhaps the smartest move Ultra Music Festival has made recently was the creation of the Resistance stage. What began as a single stage in 2015 has become a brand in and of itself. Resistance has grown so much that the festival's organizers have spun it off into its own standalone event.

Ultra, however, hasn't forgotten about Resistance's beginnings at Bayfront Park. The festival just announced that the brand will expand to two stages this year. Returning is the Arcadia Spider, which made its debut last year and wowed with its pyrotechnics and aerial acrobatics. Coming into the fold is the Carl Cox Megastructure, which, I assume, is what has traditionally been known as the Carl Cox Tent in past years.

Ultra also announced its Phase One lineup for the two stages, which includes Carl Cox, Jamie Jones, Black Coffee, Tale of Us, Nic Fanciulli, and others. The lineup stays true to Resistance's ethos of hosting true house and techno acts.

The news that will get fans the most excited, though, is the rare performance by Sasha & Digweed. John Digweed never seems to miss an opportunity to come to Miami during Ultra week, but the reunion with Sasha will mark the duo's first U.S. performance since 2010.

The Phase One Resistance announcement bolsters November's already impressive lineup announcement, which includes Ice Cube, Justice, Underworld, the Prodigy, Axwell & Ingrosso, and others.
