Miami's dance music juggernaut, Ultra Music Festival, just dropped the first phase of its 2017 lineup, and big things are in store for attendees.
Live headliners for the spring break weekender, scheduled to take place March 24–26 at Bayfront Park, include recent radio hit-makers Major Lazer; Justice, who will debut their new live show to the US on the heels of their new album; a curveball booking in rapper Ice Cube; and rave veterans Underworld and The Prodigy, the latter making up for a last-minute cancelation earlier this year.
Many of the DJ headliners are your standard Ultra fare for the big-room fans and trance family— Above & Beyond, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Axwell & Ingrosso, et al.—but their traditional house and techno offerings have increased to the point that their designated Resistance arena is stretching to two stages this year. Marking the occasion will be the anticipated return of duo Sasha & John Digweed, who last played together on US soil at Ultra 2010. They'll be joined by Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Dubfire, Tale of Us, and Resistance's newly appointed Global Ambassador, Carl Cox.
