UR1 Festival Hits Miami December 8th & 9th Headlined by Kanye West

Finally, a festival outside of ULTRA is touching down in the beautiful city of Miami and boy is the line-up a jaw-dropper! With Kanye West as the headliner, this will be the place to be during Basel Weekend.

The UR1 Music & Art Festival will cross-pollinate music, art, performance and design for a once in a lifetime experience, bringing the world’s best DJs, indie and established acts, and performance and visual artists together for one weekend. Set to take place December 8 & 9, 2012 at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami, UR1 will feature multiple stages over the 32-acre property during the 11th annual Art Basel Miami Beach.

Kanye West, The Offspring, Lou Reed, Fun. and Santigold were announced as artists set to perform at UR1 in the first reveal and now the festival’s promoters are thrilled to add a number of the biggest and brightest names in a variety of music genres as part of the second artist reveal including Flying Lotus, Iggy Azalea, Ghostland Observatory and a whole lot more which you can see on the line-up above.

Look for additional artists to be announced in the coming weeks, including the line-ups for the Reignfield Presented by Poplife Arena and the Fader Arena, as well as a dubstep arena.

Hyundai is also set to bring their Re:Mix Lab to UR1, saluting the art of collaboration. The mobile gallery features different Hyundai car builds with different visions. With custom audio, one-off materials and bespoke components throughout, each Re:Mix vehicle speaks to the passion, creativity and connectedness that unite us all.
