The CURE to Headline Ultra Music Festival

Ultra Music Festival returns to Bicentennial Park in Miami as 2-Day Festival, March 23 & 24, 2007

The Cure confirmed to headline with Tiesto (live), Deep Dish, Shiny Toy Guns, & Miss Kittin to appear on the first night, & Paul Van Dyk, Carl Cox, Erick Morillo, Danny Tenaglia, Ferry Corsten and others scheduled for night two!


As ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL (UMF), the nation’s premiere electronic music extravaganza, rolls into its ninth year, its producers have announced it will expand into a two-day festival in addition to serving as the official closing festival for the Winter Music Conference.  Set for Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24, 2007, UMF will return to downtown Miami’s beautiful waterfront Bicentennial Park.  Tickets on sale now.
ULTRA’s weekend kicks off that Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm and runs until midnight.  Appearing over three stages is the festival headliner The CURE along with Tiësto (who is slated for a rare live performance), Deep Dish, Shiny Toy Guns and Miss Kittin.  Saturday Paul van Dyk and other turntable titans Carl Cox, Erick Morillo, Danny Tenaglia and Ferry Corsten will perform over nine stages from noon until midnight.  The complete line-up for both days will be announced at a later date.
“After eight years of ULTRA my partner Alex Omes and I felt we needed to change things up a bit in order to keep the festival new and exciting as we continue the growth we have been lucky enough to have had throughout the years,” states producer Russell Faibisch.  “By adding another day we felt we could offer the opportunity to enjoy live bands like The Cure, who are legends in our culture, while keeping true to our core audience and introducing them to something new.”
Tickets for ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL 9 are currently only available as two-day passes at $99.90 for general admission and $350 for VIP, plus tax and fees.  VIP includes access to multiple, strategically placed VIP platforms with preferred viewing of UMF stages as well as several designated VIP tents and areas.

From its humble beginnings on the beaches of Miami in 1999, the ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL—founded by Russell Faibisch and Alex Omes—has grown to extraordinary proportions.  It has branched out to produce Ultra and UMF branded events in Miami, New York City (co-produced with Ultra Records), the Caribbean and Brazil, and will soon be announcing additional events in various cities around the world. ULTRA-branded events have sold out venues such as Miami’s Bayfront Park and American Airlines Arena as well as New York City’s Central Park Rumsey Field. In 2004, UMF created music history, as it became the first festival ever to be aired in HD on Pay-Per-View to more than 55 million homes for 45 days.   In 2006 UMF 8 ranked #7 among international festivals in the Top 10 Festivals Chart according to Billboard (December 23, 2006).  The ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL was also the recipient of the IDMA Award for ‘Best International Dance Event’ in 2005 and 2006.
