Ultra 2016 Phase Two Lineup: Deadmau5, Steve Angello, and More

Back in December, Ultra dropped its phase one 2016 lineup on us with all the names you'd expect: Avicii, David Guetta, and Carl Cox as well as some acts that caught fans off-guard, like an unexpected Rabbit in the Moon reunion. 

Today, Ultra is rolling out phase two with, again, some names you'd expect and one in particular that might catch you off-guard.

The phase two headliners joining Ultra 2016 will be Dash Berlin, Crystal Castles, Richie Hawtin, Steve Angello, and the biggest announcement of phase two — Deadmau5.


Even though Deadmau5 was absent from last year’s Ultra, he still managed to wiggle his way into the conversation when he publicly called out Krewella for allegedly not even plugging in their equipment — something Krewella denied. This year, he will be taking to the ASOT Stage before Armin Van Buuren's set.

Deadmau5 is both a hero and villain of modern dance music depending on whom you ask, and his inclusion in this year's Ultra will be, if nothing else, fun to watch.
