It's been a while since the Phase One acts for Ultra Music Festival 2011 were announced. So, what's taking so long?
Well, the wait will soon be over, as our sources tell us to expect something next week. We aren't entirely sure who will be on the Phase Two lineup since Ultra's organizers seem to have clamped down on the leaks that had been happening over the last few months with acts sending out press releases on upcoming tours, including Ultra dates.
One thing we can say for sure: Electronic music superstar Moby will be returning to Ultra this year for a set at the Carl Cox & Friends Arena. Last time he performed at the festival (if we are not mistaken) was in 2009.
See the cut for the Ultra lineup so far.
Special note: Ticket prices have gone up to $219.95 for three-day general admission. VIP tickets remain $499.95.
