This breaks last year's record, when tix sold out on February 18 with a full 34 days left before the fest.
Of course, Ultra's 2012 lineup, featuring Kraftwerk, Tiësto, Carl Cox, Justice, New Order, M83, Skrillex, Kaskade, and 84 others, is arguably stronger. Even steep ticket prices and a rant from an angry Mau5 weren't able to turn off EDM fans.
However, questions still linger, such as (1) which acts will be part of Ultra's Phase 2 announcement and (2) how will the festival cope with the move back to Bayfront Park.
