If the news of Rökysopp or Crystal Castles didn't get you excited about this year's three-day Ultra Music Festival, the news of UK big beat legends, the Chemical Brothers, being added to the lineup will. An inside source at the festival confirmed that the duo will be headlining next year's festival -- their first ever LIVE performance at the event. They also let us know that the full Phase 1 lineup would be announced very soon.

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons are best known for their '90s album trifecta -- Exit Planet Dust, Dig Your Own Hole, and Surrender -- which cemented their status as electronic music icons. Subsequent releases after the turn of the century never matched success of the first three, but their latest release, Further, is being called a true return to form.

In other words, if you are a dance music fanatic, you are probably peeing yourself right now. General admission tickets are still available for $179.95 and are sure to go up in price.

Our absolute favorite Chemical Brothers track, "Hey Boy Hey Girl" from 1999's Surrender, after the jump.
