Ultra Music Festival Announces Resistance Island, Three Techno Stages
Some insane back-to-backs are in the works
Ultra Miami continues to push forward with plans to host its 2019 event in a new location at Virginia Key, seemingly unbothered at the cease and desist letter handed to them last week. The change of venue will allow for new experiences that would have never been possible at their previous location in Downtown Miami. One of those experiences is an island paradise for techno lovers.
Resistance Island will be a haven for techno lovers, hosting three stages with the best techno acts in the world. The Carl Cox Megastructure is set to make its return (although it may not be in its fire-breathing spider form), alongside two other stages— one will host top-tier talent, the other will be hosted by Burning Man’s Playground sound camp.
The sounds coming out of techno paradise will be pumping for twelve hours each day and include a solid lineup of the best in the genre. Adam Beyer (and a back-to-back with Eric Prydz as Cirez D), Carl Cox, Charlotte de Witte, Richie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, Loco Dice, Hot Since 82, The Martinez Brothers, Jamie Jones b2b Joseph Capriati, Cristoph, Camelphat b2b Solardo, Alan Fitzpatrick, and an insane B3B- Dubfire B3B Nicole Moudaber B3B Paco Osuna.
Ultra Music Festival takes place March 29-31, 2019 at Virginia Key in Miami. Tickets are on sale now, get them HERE.
Lightning in a Bottle Changes Venue, Dates
This marks the fifth time the festival has relocated
Festival producers Do LaB have announced a few changes to is music and arts festival, Lightning in a Bottle. Having been held annually during Memorial Day Weekend, the festival will see a change of date to May 8th-13th. The change of date also comes with a change of venue, as the festival will be leaving the San Antonio Recreation Area in Bradley, California.
Citing management changes with the Monterey County Parks Department, as well as a change in camping availabilities, Lightning in a Bottle was forced to move from its current location. While the new venue has yet to be announced (although some keen fans seem to think its HERE), Lightning in a Bottle assured its attendees that the new locale is “…an improvement in every way.”
The new location, as well as early bird ticket sales and lineup announcement, is expected to be delivered in the upcoming weeks.
Dirtybird Campout West Coast To Stay in Modesto, 2019 Dates Revealed
The Central California campsite proved to be a great venue in 2018
After last year’s successful west coast edition (you can read my review of that HERE), Dirtybird announced it would return to the Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds for its fifth edition of Campout.
The campgrounds, which lay just outside of the city of Modesto in Central California, provided the festival with lakeside camping, islands, plenty of wide open grass fields, and overall beautiful scenery. The location allowed artists and campers alike to partake in kayaking, swimming, floatie contests and more.
Dirtybird Campout will continue to take place the first weekend of October, with this year’s dates set for October 4-6th, 2019.
