Ultra Music Festival is one of the most popular and massive electronic music festivals in the entire world, annually taking place down in Miami. The lineup always features some of the top names from all sides of the globe, and this next year they continue to just that with the first wave.
Headliners include the usual suspects Avicii, Tiesto, Zedd, Martin Garrix, Knife Party, and Kaskade among many more in addition to some newer EDM rising stars like DJ Snake, Kygo, Galantis, and more. We are also happy to see both Miike Snow and The Prodigy playing sets as both acts have reunited in the past year.
Another surprise we are very excited for is rising Aussie indie songwriter Chet Faker who puts on an incredible electronic infused live set.
We also see the rising class of last year's freshman set to truly make their mark this year including artists like SNAILS, Jauz, Marshmello, Tchami, KSHMR, Felix Jaehn, and Slander.
These are amongst many, many more notable acts, so read the full list of the first wave above and keep your eyes open for more news on the event as it comes.

The rise of Parisian producer DJ Snake had masses around the globe flocking to hear his new tracks without a moments hesitation. His “New Slaves” and “You Know You Like It” remixes were listed by many as top tracks to come out in 2013 and being officially signed to Diplo’s Mad Decent roster has added up to making Snake one of the hottest names to watch out for in 2014. DJ Snake releases his first track of 2014 in the form of a trap and bass touch up of Prodigy & Mercer’s smash hit “Breathe“. The new drum pattern and hard hitting synth work makes this track a bona fide hype anthem that is sure to be played out throughout the remainder of the year. You can see Snake live at his residency at Wynn Las Vegas as more tour dates in 2014 are soon to come. Stream the track below and grab a free download now! Enjoy

We already heard Zeds Dead’s take on The Prodigy classic dance anthem “Breathe” and now get The Glitch Mob’s take. They use a fair amount more of the originals vocals giving the track a completely different feel. They manage to convey their signature glitched out bass heavy style while highlighting the iconic electronic group. This project along with the other remixes is now available for purchase through iTunes. Enjoy!
