In a YouTube video posted this year, deadmau5 publicly slammed Ultra, describing the festival as the “definition of insanity – doing the same fucking thing every year, expecting different results every time.” He also gripped about the ticket prices, saying, “Five hundred and ninety-five fucking dollars for a ticket? Wow, someone is laughing to the bank.”
On Twitter earlier today, deadmau5 said, “Well, I caved in… There was just too many of you guys asking me to play at ultra this year, so im doin it for you guys! viva la horde.”
The Miami-based music electronic festival will run March 15th-17th and 22nd-24th at Bayfront Park. Three-day and VIP passes for both weekends are currently available.
