With EDM still pumping the lifeblood through much of young America, what were once known as “raves” have grown into massive and multifaceted events that rank among the country’s most popular music festivals.

One of the largest (and wildest) American dance music festivals is Miami’s annual Ultra Music Festival (set for the weekend of March 28-30), which attracts hundreds of thousands EDM fans to its sunny confines to take in the world’s biggest electronic live acts and crowd-pleasing DJs.

With three-day passes presently on sale and moving fast (VIP tickets are already sold out), the first round of Ultra performers being announced could almost feel anti-climactic, if it wasn’t for the blockbuster artists on that list.

Lead by global EDM superstars David Guetta, Avicii, Zedd, Steve Angello, Armin Van Buuren and Diplo, Ultra 2014’s initial line-up is sure to spur already robust ticket sales tremendously.

It’s not only DJs on the bill: Ultra 2014 is also loading up on more alternative-leaning electronic live acts like MGMT, M.I.A., Cut Copy and Empire of the Sun.

There’s even a taste of hip-hop to be found, with such rebel rappers as Wocka Flocka Flame and Pusha T landing on the line-up.

This impressive cavalcade of EDM stars is just the beginning of what Ultra 2014 is bringing to the dance floor, with even more artists to be announced in the near future. See the complete first-round line-up here, where three-day passes can also be purchased for $399.95.
