The countdown to Ultra Music Festival 2008 in Miami has officially begun today with the announcement of their 2008 line-up. The 2 day festival, taking place this year on March 28th and 29th, has always been THE party of the famed annual Winter Music Conference and this year for their 10th anniversary they have once again raised the bar to a new level. MetroWize has the inside scoop and your opportunity to win a pair of tickets to this massive event.
As in previous years, headliners for UMF 08 include all of the biggest names in djing and electronica. Day 1 of the event features Tiesto, Carl Cox, Danny Tenaglia, Richie Hawtin, BT, Justice, Rabbit in the Moon, James Zabiela and Deadmau 5. Day 2 features Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Sasha and John Digweed, Benny Bennasi, DJ Dan, David Guetta, Dirty South, Goldie and Fabio among many many more. The stage is certainly set for the biggest electronica dance party in the US.
Ultra is no new comer to the massive event. With 10 years under their belt and a list of locations that includes Miami, Ibiza, Brazil, Puerto Rico, New York and other top party destinations, these guys know how to throw a top notch production with the biggest names on the international DJ circuit. In recent years, Ultra has also begun to incorporate live electronica and even more mainstream acts into the mix by bringing in groups like The Cure (last years UMF headliner), The Prodigy, The Killers, Moby, LCD Soundsystem and this year welcoming groups like Justice and Boyz Noise.
Tickets to the event ramp up in price as the date draws nearer. Currently you can buy a 2 day General Admission pass for $129 and a VIP pass for $350. UMF 2007 had over 50,000 people in attendance and this year festival promoters expect an even bigger turnout. MetroWize will be there to cover all the madness and we want to bring you with us. Sign up today for your chance to win a 2 day ticket for you and a friend. Winners will be notified via email on March 21st.
