Ultra Music Festival has been in the news a lot last month as it negotiated its new venue in Virginia Key. Yet, while all of that was going on, fans were more concerned with practical matters like where to get hotels, how they’d get to and from the festival grounds, and who is even playing the festival.
Ultra phase one lineups have been released as early as November in 2016 or as late as late-January in 2018, so there’s no reason to be unduly concerned just yet. And it’s almost certain that Ultra has already confirmed most of the acts who are playing even before the venue was secured.
But that doesn’t mean it’s too early to speculate, either. With some tour dates already having been announced for 2019, and radius clauses being what they are, there’s already a growing list of artists who would be very unlikely to play Ultra in March. At the same time, there’s the usual group of DJs who come back year after year and would be unlikely to not play. And then there’s the ones who could play, but who knows…
All of these DJs have begun to be compiled in a thread on Reddit, “ULTRA MIAMI 2019: Confirmations, Predictions and Outs.” The list is still being updated even 14 hours after it was initially posted as commenters add their own guesses and names to the mix, and as more regular spring tour dates from artists are revealed.
See the list below and let us know if you think they’ve missed anyone!
