Ultra Music Festival dropped its yesterday and it’s fairly rattling stellar. With acts like Rezz and Zeds Dead making their fundamental stage debuts, and Illenium and Griz making their Ultra Miami debuts, plus so many extra acts nonetheless to be introduced, there’s so much to sit up for.
Aside from the artists, although, the part 1 announcement additionally revealed stage takeovers from Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS, Odesza’s Foreign Family, Armin van Buuren’s A State Of Trance, and Richie Hawtin’s PLAYdifferently. It additionally lists out the levels: Ultra fundamental stage, RESISTANCE, Live Arena, Ultra Worldwide, and UMF Radio.
This is a far cry from the eight levels in Bayfront Park, however what’s extra attention-grabbing is definitely what’s lacking… Arcadia. Arcadia, for these unaware, is the model that brings the massive Arcadia Spider to Ultra Music Festival. It’s been one the primary points of interest the competition for years, however is it doable it’s not returning in 2019?
Buried within the lineup announcement, and never seen wherever else however on the Resistance web site, is that this little bit info: “This 12 months RESISTANCE shall be hosted on its very personal island within the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, because it takes on a bigger position than ever throughout the competition.”
Looking at satellite tv for pc imagery, it’s robust to discern which island might host all Resistance, but it surely appears clear that Ultra has new plans for the model that don’t embrace Arcadia.
This is certainly a tragic second, however figuring out Ultra, they in all probability have one thing very particular deliberate in its stead. A consultant for Ultra had no remark at time publishing.
