UPDATE Ultra Music Festival has finally announced its Phase 1 lineup. Check out Ultra 2012's 92-act roster, headlined by Avicii, Tiësto, and David Guetta.
The band, of course, is best known for hits like "Blue Monday," "Age of Consent," and "Bizarre Love Triangle," all of which were released in the '80s.
In the '90s, the group hung up its synthesizers, only to reappear around the turn of the century.
Having New Order on the lineup isn't exactly surprising, considering Ultra has a habit of booking legendary bands with special influence on dance music, including Duran Duran, The Cure, and Erasure.
