Christmas came early for deadmau5 fans today when he announced that he will be headlining the main stage at Miami’s ULTRA Music Festival in March.
Despite criticizing the event for high ticket prices and exclusivity contracts in a UStream video in 2011, the heavyweight house icon will help ULTRA Music Festival celebrate its 15th birthday by closing out both Saturday night lineups during the two-weekend epic annual bash on the beach.
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 DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
