Apparently, at noon today on the Eastern coast of the U.S. of A. and sometime around high tea in London, Ultra Music Festival will announce something they proclaim is "so big, so crazy, so intense that it will knock you off your seats and leave you thinking 'WTF'." In about an hour, they claim, EDM "history" will be made. Perhaps you will hear our collective "WTF?" above the din of bass drops worldwide.
UPDATE: The announcement is that Ultra will be two weekends long. The dates are March 15 to 17, the 22 to 24, 2013.
Either way, tickets for the UMF 2013 extravaganza will go on sale Wednesday, October 17. That's in two days! This will be the event's 15th year bringing all of the live EDM your poor ears can (or cannot) manage to Miami. The dates haven't been announced, but you know you're going, so stop eating now and don't expect to pay next month's rent.
After the jump, check out the countdown video, and click back at 12:02 to find out what's the WTF deal. Click over for sexy ladies, sexy beats, and sexy shots of Miami.
