RESISTANCE Miami 2020 Lineup Announcement Video
RESISTANCE global ambassador Carl Cox will expand his iconic Carl Cox Megastructure to take place over all three days of the festival for the first time ever at Bayfront Park, celebrating 20 years of Carl Cox headlining Ultra Music Festival. Carl Cox will perform three times across the weekend; his own solo set, a world B3B debut alongside house heavyweight Jamie Jones and New York-bred tech-house destroyers The Martinez Brothers, and finally his first-ever American back-to-back appearance with techno architect Maceo Plex.
Belgian techno export Amelie Lens will make her massive Ultra Music Festival debut, showcasing her world-renowned mixing prowess and extensive arsenal of ricocheting records.
Adam Beyer B2B Cirez D will make their inaugural back-to-back Ultra performances, and techno kingpins Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber and Paco Osuna will take the stage for their third annual back-to-back-to-back Ultra Music Festival set.
Headliners including Richie Hawtin, Nic Fanciulli, Pan-Pot, ANNA and Eats Everything will deliver the expertly-crafted underground sounds that won over the hearts of more than 50,000 techno and house fans during RESISTANCE’s third annual nine-week Ibiza residency this summer at the world’s biggest nightclub, Privilege.
Beatport’s biggest selling act CamelPhat and raucous house duo Solardo will both return to RESISTANCE Miami for individual performances, following their stellar back-to-back from 2019’s festival. Berlin-based techno purveyors Tale Of Us and techno-meets-hip-hop hybrid master Loco Dice will also circle back for another year of underground groovage, while English bass-house duo Gorgon City will make their first Ultra appearance since 2015.
The RESISTANCE Special Guest lineup is the house and techno brand’s most ambitious to date. Parisian techno shapeshifter Technasia has spun back-to-back Ultra sets with Mexican techno authority Hector and Canadian tech-house beatmaker Carlo Lio individually in years past, but RESISTANCE will proudly welcome the worldwide B3B debut of all three forces combining behind the decks.
Ibiza DJ Awards’ ‘Tech House DJ Of The Year’ Michael Bibi and Spanish tech-house powerhouse Dennis Cruz both make their Ultra debuts in a sought-after back-to-back performance while RESISTANCE favorite Nastia touts her unabashed brand of Ukranian techno. Irish sound engineer Matador (LIVE), Italian techno designer Enrico Sangiuliano and deep kick drum curator Brennen Grey return to the RESISTANCE family following their spring 2019 festival performances.
Rising talent from around the globe will make their Ultra debuts, including Dancing Astronaut’s 2019 Breakout Artist of the Year Dom Dolla, Ukranian chart-topping duo ARTBAT, Siberian selector Anfisa Letyago, Carl Cox’s Awesome Soundwave label co-founder Christopher Coe (LIVE), and classically-trained Dutch maestro Reinier Zonneveld (LIVE). German techno expert Butch, French composer POPOF and Spanish tech-house virtruoso Rafa Barrios will return to Ultra Music Festival and round out the RESISTANCE Phase 1 lineup.
Taking residence on the northern perimeter of the newly revamped festival layout, RESISTANCE Miami will feature multiple areas, including the debut of The Cove. Dubbed ‘The Cove’ because of its unique waterfront positioning with Biscayne Bay to the east and Biscayne Boulevard to the west, this new stage, nestled perfectly under the palm trees in the heart of downtown Miami, will capture the vibe and spirit of RESISTANCE Island. The Cove will push forward new boundaries of imagination to expand upon the magic and energy that brought three days of underground bliss to tens of thousands of Seekers earlier this year.
With RESISTANCE firmly established on all six inhabited continents, RESISTANCE Miami promises to deliver an unparalleled house and techno experience to fans from around the globe. Read more about the rest of the Ultra Miami 2020 lineup.
