Check out iEDM's Top 10 Must-See Performances At Ultra Miami 2024 below.

 

10) Massano b2b Chris Avantgarde

Massano b2b Chris AvantgardeHailing from the outskirts of Liverpool's underground electronic scene, Massano has become a staple act in melodic techno. On top of his rising label Eternity Sounds, he has released anthems on Afterlife, Oddity, and Running Clouds, while gaining support from notable legends in the space, such as Tale Of Us, Mathame, and Innellea.

Equally impressive, Chris Avantgarde is one of Germany's most iconic artists. In addition to making powerful scores for HBO shows, Lionsgate films, and major video games, Chris has dropped tons of original music on his own VNTGRD imprint. These two innovative artists will be a lethal combo at Ultra 2024.

 

9) Calvin Harris

Calvin HarrisCalvin Harris is a man who needs no introduction. The Scottish superstar has graced the world's biggest stages, including a mesmerizing headlining performance at Coachella 2023.

With over 60 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone and tens of billions of collective streams, he will go down in history as a top 10 DJ-producer hybrid of all time.

 

8) Orbital

OrbitalSimilar to Calvin Harris in terms of having a legendary reputation, Orbital has been killing it with their one-of-a-kind production style for over 30 years. Their first official release, "Chime," is still a timeless dance-fueled classic. 

Last year, Orbital garnered a massive wave of increased exposure with their 10th studio album, Optical Delusion. Festival-goers at Ultra will be blessed with tunes from this project, pieces from their other nine albums, and more.

 

7) Masterhand

MasterhandShocking the realm of bass music with their formation in 2023, MASTERHVND incited chaotic headbanging riots and mosh pits during their set at SVDDEN DEATH's curated festival Summoning of The Eclipse. Their dark and gripping, high-energy riddim is primed for immense festival crowds. 

This super-trio is made up of Space Laces, Eptic, and SVDDEN DEATH himself. Things are guaranteed to get hectic during their inaugural Ultra set.

 

6) KlangKuenstler

KlangkuenstlerStemming from the brilliant mind of Michael Korb, KlangKuenstler has gained widespread recognition for his unique blend of techno and house. Leaning towards the hard techno side, his electrifying sets are powered by driving percussion and gritty, fast-paced basslines.

For over a decade, he has risen to become the hottest act in Germany's techno circuit. With his influence and project rapidly growing in North America, KlangKuenstler is a solid match for a breathtaking Ultra set.

 

5) Madeon b2b San Holo

Madeon b2b San HoloThis is a special b2b that any fans of future bass, deep and melodic electronic music, and artistic creativity will not want to miss. Both Madeon and San Holo have reshaped the limits of sound design and live performances consistently throughotu their career.

Madeon is a frequent headliner of premiere festivals and venues like EDC and Lollapalooza. Beyond being the co-founder of the ground-breaking label and event brand bitbird, San Holo has dedicated followers all over who can't get enough of his infectious future bass tunes. Together, this pair will put on an epic performance.

 

4) Kill Safari

Kill SafariIn company with MASTERHVND, this veteran duo also made their debut at Summoning Of The Eclipse this past year. Kill Safari is made up of dubstep maestros Bro Safari and Kill The Noise. If you are looking for a set to knock your socks off, this is the one to be in attendance at Ultra Miami 2024.

 

3) Joris Voorn b2b Kölsch

Joris Voorn b2b KölschAs incredible as Joris Voorn's resume is, nothing compares to seeing this talented visionary live. iEDM's team recently had the chance to see his three-hour set at Ultra RESISTANCE's underground house and techno residency at the top-notch club of M2 Miami.

Raised in Copenhagen, Kölsch has evolved into a beloved Danish musician, DJ, and producer. He has worked with globally renowned artists, from Coldplay to London Grammar. Easily a top three b2b pairing on Ultra's 2024 lineup, do not skip out on witnessing Joris Voorn and Kölsch in action!

 

2) Chase & Status

Chase & StatusAs we edge closer to the top spot on our Ultra 2024 countdown, this list would not be complete without one of the most prolific duos in drum & bass history. Chase & Status consists of English gifted artists, Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status).

While these two DnB technicians are extremely captivating, they are far from the only ones from this genre on Ultra 2024's lineup. These headliners are joined by Dimension, Sub Focus, and Andy C. However, Chase & Status are arguably the most anticipated though, just check out their recent Boiler Room set and you'll see why.

 

1) RL Grime b2b Knock2

RL Grime b2b Knock2

Taking down the #1 spot for Ultra 2024, both of these artists had very different 2023s in terms of musical success. RL Grime has made a huge comeback, with demand for his alluring trap and boundary-breaking sounds at an all-time high.

Knock2 also had a killer year, but as a newer artist, it was more surrounded by absolutely blowing up the charts and becoming a fast-rising artist in dubstep, trap, and overall bass scenes. The merging of their two extraordinary signature sound will be an exclusive set to remember for years to come.
