"We just heard that the owners of Ultra were spotted on a trip in Antarctica," the page announces. "Apparently it's so cold down there that they actually have their hands in their OWN pockets for a change. #boycottultra - Join the Boycott Ultra Music Festivalcause."

Damn, that was a wicked burn, yo. But let's look at the facts.

UMF released a limited amount of early-bird tickets at 1 p.m. on Tuesday for $149.95. Unsurprisingly, considering the insane number of EDM fanatics who consider this festival to be Shangri-La, the servers were overloaded and tickets were near impossible to snag.

But snagged they were, and those left out in the cold got really vocal and angry. The Ultra camp quickly apologized and thanked the fans, as well as made a second round of tickets available.
