Ultra Music Festival 2020: Zedd, Major Lazer, Gesaffelstein & More Announced
Ultra Music Festival (UMF), the multi-day electronic music festival, has announced the initial lineup for its 2020 iteration. The festival, celebrating its 22nd edition next year, will include live performances from headliners Gesaffelstein plus GRAMMY winners Flume, who’s making his UMF debut as a live headliner, and Zedd, the latter of whom will present his LED-backed stage structure, The Orbit. UMF, taking place March 20–22, 2020, returns to Miami's Bayfront Park, its longtime home, following a brief relocation to Virginia Key earlier this year.
Major Lazer, the cross-genre project from GRAMMY-winning super-producer Diplo, also joins the lineup, bringing its electrified takes on Latin pop, dancehall and reggae to the festival stage. Other announced UMF headliners include trance giants Above & Beyond, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix and many others. Australian house/tech-house artist, and 2018 GRAMMY nominee, FISHER and Belgian techno producer Amelie Lens, both breakout stars in their respective genres, will make their UMF festival debuts next March.
UMF 2020 will also feature a handful of debut back-to-back (b2b) performances, including techno icon Adam Beyer b2b Cirez D, the techno alias of GRAMMY nominee Eric Prydz, as well as SLANDER b2b Kayzo and Jauz b2b NGHTMRE, among many others.
U.K. electronic icon Carl Cox, who's curated his own stage at UMF since 2005, will once again revive the fan-favorite RESISTANCE Megastructure stage, which next year expands across the festival’s three days for the first time ever at Bayfront Park.

Trance legend Armin van Buuren also returns to UMF with his A State of Trance stage, which will celebrate a decade as a dedicated space at the festival next year. Bass heavyweights NGHTMRE and SLANDER will debut their Gud Vibrations stage takeover, named after their collaborative event series and record label, at the UMF Radio stage.
