Your 2011 ULTRAfest Guide!

So as many of you know, ULTRA starts tomorrow. This post is going to be dedicated to sharing some of the people who I consider must-see acts at the festival. Descriptions will be short since I'll be listing many artists. Let's get to it, since I'm writing this in biology class... ahh, alveoli..


-Sidney Samson
-Carl Cox
-Designer Drugs
-Tinie Tempah (perhaps a BareNoize appearance?)
-Fedde La Grand


-Avicii (2 showings, go to both, he's that good!)
-Excision and Datsik (dirtiest dubstep show in the south, guaranteed!)
-Feed Me
-Skream + Benga
-Boys Noize
-Armin Van Buuren


-Umek (awsome progressive house)
-Lazy Rich
-Will Bailey
-Dada Life
-John Dahlback
-Glitch Mob
-12th Planet
-Cosmic Gate
-Sub Focus
-Steve Aoki
-David Guetta
-Laidback Luke
-Wolfgang Gartner
-Will.I.AM (for all you cheeseheads)

Now let's make some highlights.

-Porter Robinson
Now this guy really knows what he's doing, some kind of mix between the steady house rhythms and dirty electro basses, accompanied by the classic dubstep yelps. Also worth checking out Lazy Rich as they seem to produce similar sounding tracks and often work together.
Must see at ULTRA for the dirty bassline and constant energy.

-Datsik and Excision
My personal favorite, Datsik, if you haven't heard, comes up with some of the dirtiest, heaviest, in your face dubstep ever. And hes with his wingman Excision!He puts on an amazing show live, really knows how to get the crowd working, and no doubt, will be a huge act to catch at this year's ULTRA.

Ah, good ol' Skrillex, who seemingly has blown up overnight, is playing on the Tower of Ultra stage this Sunday. Might be a little gimmicky, but he really knows how to throw down some bangers, check out one of his newer songs, a Rob Zombie cover, Sick Bubblegum.

Avicii is probably my favorite house producer right now. After following him for a while, I've started to notice a trend in his music..... none of it's boring! Doesn't surprise me this guy is playing two or three times at Ultra this year, you HAVE to check him out!

-Feed Me
Another guy who seems to have blown up under Deadmau5' label is Feed Me. Former D&b producer, Spor, is up there with Porter Robinson with the danceable, yet dirtyyyy bass.

-John Dahlback

So I recently found this guy in his new song with my buddy Avicii. Haven't heard too much from him, but from what I have heard, this guy is killer. I could only imagine dancing to his music with the Miami Skyline in my peripherals.
