Flosstradamus, Tiësto, The Crystal Method, Empire of the Sun, The Wailers featuring Julian Marley, NGHTMRE + Slander and Many More Acts Set for Breakthrough Moments at Ultra 2018

The first phase of the Ultra Music Festival has been released and the lineup is overstocked with international level performing acts.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of UMF in Miami. It will provide a wide range of music including EDM, hiphop, reggae, alternative rock, and special collaborations.


After reading the response on social media, some of the diehard EDM fans may not be totally sold on phase 1, but for a person like myself that enjoys diversity, I find this lineup to be the best one yet. One thing about the UMF online response is the diehard perspective on finding out which acts are already booked, and the passion and support for the acts scheduled to perform. The passion is real regardless.
