Ultra 2018 Phase 2 Adds Fischerspooner, Modestep, Benny Benassi, and Others to the Lineup

If you waited to buy tickets until Ultra Music Festival announced the Phase 2 acts for the 2018 edition, well, you might have waited too long. Last week, the festival sold out of general-admission tickets. Only VIP tickets remain for $1,499.95.

So for many, today's announcement of the Phase 2 acts is just the cherry on top of an already epic weekend. The latest additions to the lineup include electroclash icon Fischerspooner, dubstep duo Modestep, Norwegian producer Alan Walker, "Satisfaction" hit-maker Benny Benassi, Dutch EDM producer Oliver Heldens, and local Grammy-winning DJ Cedric Gervais.

The additions of Fischerspooner and Modestep to the live stage should be enough to pique some people's interest, but Ultra is still being very cryptic when it comes to what exactly it has planned to celebrate its 20th anniversary. So far, all the festival has disclosed are plans for "special anniversary performances" and that fans should "expect the unexpected."

Throughout its history, Ultra has surprised attendees through unannounced appearances, such as when Madonna dropped in on Avicii's set in 2012 to controversially ask the crowd if they had seen "molly." (Deadmau5 called her an "idiot" after the stunt.) Other pop stars who have appeared at the festival include Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Future. Swedish House Mafia also famously held its final show at the 2013 edition.

So what's Ultra planning this year? Who knows, but expectations are high.
