ULTRA 15 is right around the corner and with a lot of CMB going, including myself, I feel it essential to write my top 5 for this massive festival. Here it goes…
Honorables: Carl Cox, Seven Lions, Phunk Investigation
Known to kill it in Miami, Fedde Le Grand is a must see on Friday. Playing in the prime time slot on Friday night on the main stage, Le Grand puts together great house sets that will keep the crowd excited for the later shows. Songs like Autosave and Put Your Hands up for Detroit show how far the guy’s made it. Rated a top 3 set last year, check him out.
Deadmau5 was MIA at last year’s Ultra so expect him to come with something special on this year’s main stage. Rumor has it the Mau5 will go “unplugged”, or unmasked and with an entirely new set than he usually plays. This would make sense after his release of <Album Title Goes Here> this past year.
This bundle of energy never ceases to amaze me. With an early set on the Ultra Buenos Aires stage, Tritonal is sure to bring a show and a half. Come with tons of energy, cause this trance team from Austin, Texas will have you moving. Expect erratic dance moves for that full hour from @TritonalChad who just looks like he’s having more fun than anyone in the crowd. I’ll match him.
Yet to see these guys in a festival setting, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano are something to wake up for Saturday morning. Unfortunately, the funky team only gets an hour long set which is a tragedy. The more time they get the better, because they have the ability to build and break and to build and break again. Let’s make due with what we have Ultra fans and show the funky tribal DJs how the Miami can party.
Too tough to narrow in on one set, I had to go with the combination on Sunday night. Above & Beyond followed by Armin van Buuren will be heavenly. No more words needed.
To everyone going, have fun and be safe! ULTRA, here we come.
