The 2013 Ultra Music Festival is bringing the EDM party to Miami this March. While previously announced bookending headliners Swedish House Mafia are gearing up for their farewell performances, more of the lineup was released, including David Guetta and Deadmau5.

The Bayfront Park in Miami will host the event, which spans two weekends this year instead of one, with shows on March 15-17 and March 22-24.

Swedish House Mafia, who announced their impending split in summer 2012, feel that closing out the Ultra Music Festival is honoring their own memory and beginnings — their first U.S. performance was at the 2010 Ultra Music Festival.

“Ultra was the first place we really built a show for a main stage,” the group said. “We filmed the whole thing and we played ‘One’ for the first time on that stage. It was a moment we would never forget and became the closing scene in our film, ‘Take One.’ … It just felt right that we finished where so much was started and we’re honored to open and close the festival.”

Billboard reports that Calvin Harris, Avicii, Afrojack and more are also billed to perform at the giant dance party, which still has limited tickets available at its website. More acts are slated to be announced in the “Phase Two” lineup.

This will be the 15th anniversary of the Ultra Music Festival, which is a staple of Miami Music Week. Last year’s festival featured Skrillex (who partied with then girlfriend Ellie Goulding and Selena Gomez, who was filming ‘Spring Breakers’ nearby, at the festival). Still, the real star of the 2012 Ultra Music Festival was surprise guest Madonna. Stay tuned to see what other acts the festival has up its sleeves for 2013!
