Ultra Music Festival's Russell Faibisch: Ultra 2012 "Will Be Bigger Than Last Year"

UPDATE Ultra Music Festival has finally announced its Phase 1 lineup. Check out Ultra 2012's 92-act roster, headlined by Avicii, Tiësto, and David Guetta.

Just like the rest of the beat-freaking world, we here at Crossfade are rabidly anticipating Ultra Music Festival's imminent lineup announcement.

Two weeks ago, we received word from an anonymous source that the fest will be "taking over downtown Miami on the waterfront in a whole new way, like no event has done before." And just last Thursday, it was confirmed that Ultra 2012 will be taking over Bayfront Park.

So recently, we tried to coax Ultra cofounder and CEO Russell Faibisch into giving up the goods on this year's talent pool.

But predictably, he's keeping quiet. "We're close to making an announcement," Faibisch says. "Very close."

""Plans are already pretty much finalized," he adds. "But at this time, all I can say that [Ultra] will be bigger than last year."

"The plans are really exciting."

Ultra Music Festival 2012. Friday, March 23, to Sunday, March 25, 2012. Bayfront Park, 301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. General admission tickets cost $299.95 plus fees or $599.95 plus fees for VIP. Visit ultramusicfestival.com.
