The prolonged party begins March 15-17 and after a four-day break, revs up again on March 22-24. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, Oct. 17 on the festival's website. Featured artists will be announced at a later date.

Ultra is the centerpiece of Miami Music Week and this edition marks the festival's 15-year anniversary.

"After an extremely successful 2012 edition of ULTRA in Miami, and the continuous overwhelming demand by disappointed fans that were unable to attend because of the early sell-out, we've decided to do what ULTRA has always consistently done throughout the years -- pioneer and push the EDM movement forward," said Ultra Festival co-founder, president and CEO Russell Faibisch in a statement.

Last year's festival featured headlining performances from EDM heavyweights David Guetta, Armin van Buuren and Kaskade, but the biggest moment came courtesy of Madonna, who made a surprise appearance with then-newcomer Avicii.

"Electronic dance music has been a part of my life since the beginning of my career," she told the crowd, adding, "I can honestly say a DJ saved my life."
