Round up the Sober Team, bare your wrist and grab your glowsticks: Ultra Music Festival's phase one lineup has been released for 2012, and boy is it a doozy: this March you'll be not only be partying with the usual Tiesto and Guetta, but pioneering Dusseldorf EDM foursome Kraftwerk. Yes, Kraftwerk. And they aren't the only "throwbacks" in a sea of progressive house: equally influential New Order are along for the ride, though without original bassist Peter Hook.
More names will be added, of course, but if you aren't already in, then Ultra's not for you. For those 150,000 people already packing up their fishnets, don't forget: thanks to construction, this year you're going to Bayfront Park, not the usual ol' Bicentennial. With early bird and advance tickets gone, tickets are now $299 and up for the three-day Miami Music Week festival, and we hear they're going fast.
