Are you beat-freaking kidding me?
We're still uhntz-uhntz-ing around Ultra Music Festival 2012, waiting for EDM riot-starter Kaskade, David "The French Tickler" Guetta, and super-Dutch trance man Armin van Buuren to hump up onto the Main Stage and bring this sweaty, pheremone-soaked festival of dance to a furious, fist-pumping climax.
And yet ... Ultra organizers have already revealed the dates for the 2013 edition of UMF!
OK, so this isn't really all that surprising. Last year, the fest blasted out its plans for 2012 before Ultra 2011 had even started.
And sticking with that pre-emptive approach, just a few minutes ago, an official Ultra Music Festival app alert was sent out to subscribed beat freaks like Crossfade . It read: "Ultra Music Festival 2013 dates announced - March 22 - 24 during Miami Music Week 2013! #CANUFEELIT"
To which we can only answer, "Uh ... Yeah, we're still here!"
