Ultra Music Festival has added more than 80 genre-bending acts to its already impressive lineup, ahead of the event’s return to Bayfront Park from March 25 – 27, 2022.

Ultra will continue its endless commitment to touching all corners of the dance floor by hosting its first-ever hardstyle stage, curated by Belgian hardstyle, jumpstyle and happy hardcore record label Dirty Workz.

Xtreme, happy hardcore pioneer Darren Styles, UK hardcore icon Gammer, uptempo hardcore cowboy Lil Texas, hardstyle wunderkinds Sub Zero Project, hard dance thunder from down under Audiofreq, and American hardstyle staples Darksiderz and Pulsatorz.

Nearly half of the Phase 2 lineup is composed of first-ever festival performances. Similarly, Ultra will usher in inaugural performances from acts like Kannibalen label heads Black Tiger Sex Machine, magnetic singer-songwriter-producer Elohim (live), a double-trouble set from Mija b2b GG Magree, dubstep rockstar Sullivan King (live) and more.

This year’s edition will be a one-stop destination for bassheads as Phase 2 boasts a thunderous lineup of today’s hottest acts in bass music, including a live set by multi-instrumentalist Ookay (live), heavy-bass maven WHIPPED CREAM, wobble wizard PEEKABOO, and the fast-rising Nitepunk.
