Ultra fest releases first lineup for Aussie takeover

music news 08/11/2019

Ultra Music Festival is hitting Aussie in March next year, in both Sydney and Melbourne. 

The first lineup is here and my god is it packed full to the brim. Aussie punters will be treated to Eric Prydz performing twice at each event, once as himself and once under his darker Cirez D alias. He's also announced he'll be honouring his late superfan James Lillo, who passed away from cancer in 2016, by taking his ashes along for the journey. 

Also fronting the lineup as veterans DJ Snake, Zedd, Afrojack and Dash Berlin, along with some house and techno vibes from UMEK, Luciano and Deborah De Luca. 

Better lock those flights across the ditch in soon team...

Here's the touching post from Prydz, showing the gift given to him by James Lillo's family - a stone containing some of James' ashes so he can travel the world with the DJ:
