Do you hear that uhntz-uhntz in the distance?
It's been 53 days since Ultra Music Festival 2012 announced its Phase 1 lineup, "a sprawling 92-act roster that ranges from massive dance superstars Avicii, Tiësto, David Guetta, Kaskade, and Fedde Le Grand to electronic music legends Kraftwerk, New Order, and Fatboy Slim to dubsteppers Skrillex, Borgore, and 12th Planet."
Finally, though, with only six weeks till 150,000 beat freaks crash Bayfront Park, we here at Crossfade have received another Ultra lineup leak: Techno legend Richie Hawtin's gonna be beat-bombing Downtown Miami again.
It's been three years since Hawtin last played Ultra in 2009. But this March, the Minus label mastermind will be joining the Carl Cox & Friends Mega Structure again.
Of course, as the fest itself says, "Ultra Music Festival completely sold out in record time!" So even if you're superhyped about Richie's Ultra adventure, it's gonna be virtually impossible to score tix to spend the day raving with Plastikman.
Well, unless you win the free Ultra Music Festival 2012 tickets sweepstakes.
Ultra Music Festival 2012. Friday, March 23, to Sunday, March 25. Bayfront Park, 301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. Tickets are sold out. Visit ultramusicfestival.com.
