Ultra Music Festival

Ultra Music Festival 2011 Happening March 25-27, Outside of WMC Dates [UPDATE]

UPDATE: Ultra's official site has been updated, confirming all the information reported here earlier.
UPDATE x2: Early-bird general admission tickets are sold out! That has to be some kind of record. Tickets are now $179.95, and are only available at that price for a limited time.

Here it is! We got the scoop first from an inside source at Ultra Music Festival. The 13th edition of electronic music event, which will expand to three days next year, will be taking place in downtown Miami, outside the confirmed Winter Music Conference dates of March 8 to 12. The official dates are Friday, March 25; Saturday, March 26; Sunday, March 27. Three-day early bird combo tickets will go on sale TONIGHT for $119.95 -- a steal for a three-day event if you ask us. VIP tickets will go for $499.95.

Sources reveal once early-bird tickets sell out, price will increase and Phase 1 of the lineup will be announced. This will also be the biggest lineup in the festival's history.

We already know that Crystal Castles has been confirmed as part of the lineup. We are awaiting confirmation on the venue.

Tickets for Ultra Music Festival 2011 are available here.
