Resistance return to Miami taking over its own island for Ultra Music Festival

House | Saturday 2nd March 2019 | Becky

As Miami Music week creeps up on us, Ultra Music Festival has unleashed the mother of all House and Techno line up's with its Resistance frontier, which this year takes over its own island which has a Carl Cox Mega Structure as its centrepiece.

RESISTANCE, Ultra Worldwide’s esteemed underground concept, has come a long way since its Ultra debut as a single stage in 2015. With Ultra Music Festival 2019 around the corner, RESISTANCE has announced that it will be returning to Miami this year with its most ambitious plans yet. 

With the RESISTANCE island takeover official, the organizers have announced that for the first time ever, it will be hosting the Carl Cox MegaStructure for the entire weekend. The King himself is set to headline all three days, with an additional exclusive B2B set on Saturday with a special guest. While Carl will be leading the charge at the MegaStructure all weekend, Richie Hawtin’s PLAYdifferently will run a takeover at a brand new RESISTANCE structure on Saturday. This, however, is not the only plans RESISTANCE has for its island. 

Armed with three stages and newly extended hours, RESISTANCE did not hold back on its program, dropping its most comprehensive lineup to date. In addition to RESISTANCE Global Ambassador, Carl Cox, and Richie Hawtin, headliners include the likes of the Adam Beyer, and Sasha | John Digweed, acts that are jumping from one island to another after enjoying a stellar season as RESISTANCE Ibiza residents last summer. In addition to Adam playing his own set, the Don of Drumcode will be teaming up for a highly anticipated B2B set with Cirez D.

Headliners making their RESISTANCE Miami debut include Deadmau5’s techno alias, Testpilot, Belgium’s Charlotte de Witte and Italy’s Ilario Alicante. Meanwhile, techno pioneer and Cocoon boss Sven Väth returns to Ultra Music Festival for the first time since 2013. 

Moreover, RESISTANCE Miami will see the return of the rare B3B set between Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber and Paco Osuna, as well as an exclusive B2B set between Jamie Jones and Joseph Capriati. The rest of the headliners include Art Department, Black Coffee, Hot Since 82, Joris Voorn, Loco Dice, Maceo Plex, The Martinez Brothers, Matador, Nic Fanciulli, and Tale Of Us. 

While the headliners are great, RESISTANCE did not hold restraint on any of their support bookings either. Alan Fitzpatrick, Andrea Oliva, Dennis Cruz, Enrico Sangiuliano, La Fleur, Noir, Richy Ahmed, Camelphat and Solardo will all be making their RESISTANCE Miami debut, with the last two set to go B2B. Additional support acts include ANNA, Chip E, Christian Smith, Cristoph, Hector, Jon Rundell, Josh Wink, Luigi Madonna, Marco Bailey, Pleasurekraft, Popof, Stefano Noferini, and Technasia B2B Carlo Lio. 

RESISTANCE MIAMI will take place at Ultra Music Festival at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park & Miami Marine Stadium on March 29, 30 and 31, 2019. General admission tickets can be purchased at
