Ultra Music Festival 2013 Phase One Lineup Released: Major Lazer! Hot Chip! Swedish House Mafia!

Guess Who's Playing Ultra 2013!

This Ides of March, the only thing getting assassinated is millions of festivalgoers' eardrums at the now extended Ultra Music Festival in Miami's Bayfront Park.

Organizers are doubling down on the pleasure and fun, hosting not one but two weekends of EDM. But can the music fest possibly top last year's Skrillex set, Madonna's "Molly" debacle, and throwback performances by Kraftwork and New Order?

Time to break out the glow necklaces and shutter shades, and find out. Ultra's phase one lineup has been released for 2013, announcing 13 DJs and 13 live acts in addition to the previously announced DeadMaud5 and Swedish House Mafia, who will play both weekends as part of their farewell performance.

Watch the video tease above.

There's already plenty of untz-untz buzz that acts like Major Lazer, Crystal Castles, and Hot Chip are saddling up besides the standard set of mainstay performers that includes Tiesto and David Guetta.

Ultra 2013 goes down March 15 to 17 and March 22 to 24. Ticket packages range from $299.95 to $1,449.90. Bad news: The early bird tickets of $149.95 have already sold out.
