    It's a pretty random lineup, but I like it overall so I am planning on attending both days. Kanye, Moby, Miike Snow, Bloc Party, Lou Reed, Modest Mouse and Sven Vath and Keane are the biggest draws for me on the initial lineup.

    Animal Collective, Dead Can Dance, Flying Lotus, Jane's Addicton, Peter Murphy, Zola Jesus added, among a few other names. There's definitely a lot of quality here!

    Where are you seeing that Bloc Party, Moby, Miike Snow and Modest Mouse are playing? I'm not seeing any of these names on the festival's official lineup page.

    They were on an original leaked list, but they never were officially announced.
    I removed them from the first post
    Such a random lineup, but I like it overall

    I think with the latest line up, this is starting to look really good! I wasn't expecting The Drums, Real Estate, Wild Nothings, Tan Lines, among others on the line up!

    UR1 Festival Postponement Announcement

    It is with deep regret that we announce the postponement of the first annual UR1 Music & Art Festival due to circumstances beyond our control, including:

    - Foreseeable inclement weather conditions in the Miami-Dade and South Florida region;
    - Continued effects of the recent Hurricane Sandy.

    In consideration of these and other factors including the safety and wellbeing of our fans and performing artists we have come to this tough decision. Understandably this has had an ancillary effect on ticket sales and business logistics. It has always been our mission to produce events of the utmost quality and safety.

    The new dates for the UR1 Music & Art Festival will be announced shortly. New dates will be chosen when weather conditions satisfy the safety of our fans, artists and staff. Once the dates are released you may chose to retain your ticket, as we will accept it at the festival. Alternatively should you choose to be refunded, information and instructions on how to do so can be found at www.ur1festival.com/tickets. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

    We would also like to inform you that we are making every effort to showcase some of the talent that was scheduled to perform and exhibit at the festival in various locations around Miami. For those of you who would like to join us and the talent that will continue on to be showcased pending forthcoming dates to be announced, UR1 Ticket holders will have the opportunity to use their festival ticket at events around Miami during Basel week. A list of events accepting UR1 Tickets & Vouchers will soon be listed at www.ur1festival.com

    Sincerely,

    The UR1 Music & Art Festival Family

    thats the most bullshit excuse ever, its so they don't have to pay the artists. In the end this will be most likely cancelled. maybe they should consider being meteorologist since they can foresee weather 2 1/2 weeks in advance
    Upcoming Shows:

    Total bullshit excuse. I have friends that had already booked flights for this. The promoters should be ashamed of themselves. Also LOL at them using Hurricane Sandy as an excuse. That is disrespectful to the victims of the storm on the east coast.
