Here comes the Ultra Music Festival shuffle! You have to remember nothing is concrete even on the day of the festival (Bloc Party canceled last year at the last minute). According to an official press release from Ultra's organizers, indie-rock band Passion Pit has been added to the Day 1 lineup along with Dan Black, while dubstep powerhouse Caspa along with Toddla T are on the Day 2 lineup.
Eddie Halliwell has altogether disappeared from the lineup. And while Erick Morrillo lists on his website a Day 2 appearance, Ultra's organizers have yet to confirm.
Update: Sorry, I missed that Benga had also been added to Day 2. Ultra 2010, year of dubstep?
