Cut Copy, The Presets, Simian, Roni Size, Santogold, Crystal Castles and Deadmau5 are quite a haul. Makes me a lot less jealous of the HARD Halloween attendees.

And yes, after-hours come down party at my place.

No way dude, it's always too expensive and if you seek the blogs and flyers you'll usually find something better and cheaper.

and Sbess is totally right, they rape you 40% of the cost.

so far this initial line up has decreased my desire to go.

This lineup is probably going to quadruple in size and Ultra's notorious for dropping a big headliner in January. I'd say the rest of the acts are pure EDM.

I bet they dropped this to prevent Monday's Langerado lineup from stealing Spring Breakers.

I might go out of convenience, but i dunno. I'm hoping for some better names to pop up.

Just signed up to these boards because I wanted to chime in about the first phase of the Ultra lineup. What I don't understand is how more people aren't talking about Simian Mobile Disco being there!

Simian is by far my #1 act to see this year (well Cut Copy is right up there) and restored my faith in Ultra. I almost didn't go last year until they added Underworld (who I had never seen), but this year is a must attend it looks like. I'll be interested to see that Langerado lineup which drops tomorrow.

But fuck Tiesto as a headliner, I don't mind so much that he is there cause he draws a big crowd away but as a headliner yeah that's just lazy. Def something bigger coming though, I'd take the Chems over prodigy personally.

And buy your tickets second hand through ebay or craigslist or something like that. I got a 2 day pass for $100 evn last year, will do the same this year.


And hey shout out to Sammy aka Aphxtwinin, this is Rob btw. Really hope Phish is announced for the Roo this year so you'll come up my way this summer.

Hey man, I actually have a bit of a story about that. Last year I purchased some wristbands on Craigslist, met the guy in person, gave him like $100 a piece for 2 days and proceeded to get rejected at the door.

Some guy who worked for WMC saw our wristbands after we were rejected and noted that those were 4 years old. Luckily, this same dude got us in that day for free and the guy who sold me the tickets actually picked up his phone again and gave me my money back.

Point is, yes you can buy your tickets online for less money, but never, ever buy a wristband.

i THINK friday starts in the afternoon.
And saturday is an all day thing.

gooftroop
12-07-2008, 12:30 PM
Yeah I think wristbands are for VIP, definitely only buy an actual ticket, they are very big and would be nearly impossible to do a good fake of. And yes music starts around 4pm friday and at noon saturday.

One thing that has always pissed me off about ultra is how they refuse to release the schedule before hand. They print out time sheets for both the days so at least you find everything out right when you get there, but still come on. Their website is garbage too yuck. I have mixed feelings about Ultra as a whole but they do always get quality acts but there's a lot of shit there.

I heard Beck for Langerado, can't wait to see if that's confirmed or not.

sbessiso
12-07-2008, 01:58 PM
I'm looking forward to out massive ULTRA party that will surely be assembled. You're right about the tickets, this year a friend of mine was able to get me a saturday ticket for free and I found a friday one on craig's list for $50. I never went Saturday, so I sold that ticket and made a profit!! (I'm not scummy, I just really couldnt make it friday)

Ardentbiscuit
12-07-2008, 02:04 PM
I think the first phase of Ultra is pretty good.

I don't see why people are so annoyed by Tiesto. He's like Widespread Panic at Bonnaroo. He's a staple.

sbessiso
12-07-2008, 02:11 PM
I think it said somewhere that he was headlining, which is where the annoyance was coming from. But I don't think he will.

EXCELLENT comparison though, there's no better way to put it

gooftroop
12-07-2008, 04:47 PM
I've only lived in Miami for about 5 years, but I would agree that people are often very up-front about their fakeness. Or maybe it's just obvious? That being said there are plenty of wonderful people in this city, it just takes some sifting through all the shit. I love it down here overall though.

As for as Ultra being "bro-ish" I'll have to say that it is only to a degree. Ultra is an extremely international festival with attendees from dozens of countries world wide. To me it's more of an "electro-tweaker" crowd on the whole with some Euro-trash thrown in there. I don't know what is worse, bros or e-tards. Nothing against raving but plenty of people in that subculture are lame as hell. At least Bros will share drugs (@ Bonnaroo at least). I've never had a bad time at Ultra but it does pale in comparison to all the other festivals I've been too (Coachella, Bonnaroo, Langerado, ACL, Pitchfork). Not enough variety for my taste.

But fuck yes for Simian and Cut Copy.

NOW CHEMICAL BROTHERS, HOLY SHIT. They played at Ultra in.....'04. It was a epic orgasm for 2 hours.. and the crowd was INSANEE. I'm REALLY hoping for them.

It ends at midnite because Bicentennial park charges them a fuck load after midnite so they always turn of the power and get ppl out to avoid city fees. I think the Polo fields do the same thing, but im not really sure.

definatley looking forward to simian mobile disco, that will be a great show for that event. i missed last year, but i think i will check it out this year.

anyone that likes edm should check out the festival in detroit over memorial day weekend. the weekend ticket is only $40 and this year they had 5 stages over 3 days. i went this year while i was home visiting and decided to check it out. the new producers have really kicked it up a few notches and the line up was more than decent for the $40 price.

orbital would be sick at ultra

i agree 100% prodigy were definitely not up to par when they played in 06, it seemed like the sound was fucked up or something, i remember not being able to hear them to well.

as always the chems would be a treat, bring back underworld too!

ok prodigy in 06' had those pyrotechnic flamethrowers that shoot up in the air...once firestarter started and they were not using the flamethrowers at all, I was just like this is gonna be lame, and it was, for the most part. how do you not use fire during firestarter...but they used it for other songs wtf

yeah i think ultra tends to be more disorganized than other fests at bicentennial, probably has to do with the insane amount of people and the size of the event, but i don't know, everybody there including a lot of the people working are just fucked up and loaded or trying to get fucked up and loaded, because its a festival, and its wmc, and this is the crowd it brings. there's only so many audio techs and production staff in miami, many of them probably get recycled around town throughout the week at different venues and stages. I don't think they have much of a choice really, unless the touring acts bring their own sound + production people, who knows really.

I’m from Australia and was looking to buy tickets to UMF 2009 - the only option that seems to be available however is post but i won’t be in Australia when they post them out on March 1 and I arrive in Miami on the 27th.

Does anyone know what I can do? Do they release PDF printouts or an option to pick up tickets from the venue?

What you can do is buy hard tickets from one of the many vendors in miami, and i think they may do a will call option later on. If anything do you have friends who live in Miami that could buy the tickets for you?

Who here went to Ultra the longest ago? Is that a correct sentence? I don't know.

I first went in 99, when it was ON the beach at 22nd street. In the sand. X was at it's peak and there was a damn open air drug market. Whoa. People having sex right out in the open as soon as the sun went down. Fucked up folks just sprawled out. I remember, like it was yesterday, stepping on some poor soul's arm who was fucked up and hearing it crack. Sorry dude. I also stole a case of Tequiza. Good times.

That is soo fucked up.


Salah, I would definitely go to this rather than Langerado if I were you. Based on initial lineups, of course.

I'm still deciding, as of right this second I'm going to neither since I don't have tickets. ULTRA is fucking expensive, so I may only go one day. I dunno, everything is expensive right now. Coachella has top priority (and The Roo but that's already taken care of)

just bought my ticket yesterday...the prices went up to $130 but with rape in the butt charges it comes out to 179.95 so I would suggest that everyone get them soon cuz by the next price hike its gonna end up being 200.

Oh man, that sounds like a fucking hell of a time. I remember hearing about the Ultra's on the beach, but when they started in '98 I was only 13..

I started going to Ultra when I was 16, so...in 2001. I have no recollection of it at all..only seeing rabbit in the moon. specifically bunny's face with the black and white circles going around it..I have no idea what I did or who I saw..I think I was just walking around with my friends in complete and utter awe of what was going on, and feeling this heightened sense of unity for the first time was too intense for my memory to handle. haha.

I would be really tempted to go to this especially if the Prodigy played. I don't think I could take off for 2 big festivals though back to back. I could definitely afford it but I think my boss would kill me. I really hope they play LA though if they are coming all the way here for Ultra.

i would recommend not wearing your ridiculous hand-made outfits if you go to umf/wmc. trust me on this one.

Why do you say that?

It is a very fun lineup. It is not perfect by all means. Umf may have the same shits in the last 10 years but they are trying to be somewhat different this year. Coachella & other hip/hippy festivals would love to take or had most of those shits played in their festivals. I'll take the fun douchebags at Umf over the pretentious frigid elitist hipster cunts & douchebags.
