Ultra Music Festival Makes Last Minute Lineup Additions, Schedule Changes
With Ultra Music Festival a mere two days away, tis the season for last minute lineup changes. The festival announced three new additions to its extensive lineup, Bag Raiders, best known for their captivating 2010 hit, “Shooting Stars,” Sid Wilson from Slipknot, and A$AP Ferg. The grouping is certainly interesting; a death metal fixture, Wilson appears as an unexpected add on to the UMF lineup, while A$AP Ferg, although perhaps outside the genre range of the EDM focused festival, will cater to those with tastes in both the dance music and hip hop genres.
Among the recent expansion of the lineup rests another change, notably with respect to Justice’s Live stage set—the French duo will gain set time, playing for a full hour, beginning at 10 PM. Curiosity has likewise been piqued by the declaration of a mystery “special guest” to appear on Sunday at the Resistance stage. Ultra Music Festival is, as always, full of surprises, so prior attendees know well to expect the unexpected, whereas first timers may now consider themselves enlightened.
