The Ultra Music Festival in Miami, known more for its electronic music indulgenses like Bassnectar and Deadmau5, could be leaning on old-schoool electronic music pioneers New Order for the 2012 Ultra Music Festival. Talk about props for the old gaurd ... New Order could be just the shot in the arm that Ultra needs for wider legitimacy beyond the dubstep jetset and Electronic Daisy scene. The Miami New Times reports that New Order is a confirmed act for the Ultra Music Festival, even though the festival has yet to announce a lineup.
"Our sources at Ultra Music Festival have leaked some big news, telling us that an appearance by New Wave icons New Order at this year's festival has been confirmed," read the report from the Miami New Times. Good news for anyone soaking up the sun in Miami next Spring.
