The initial lineup for 2013's Ultra Music Festival has been revealed, and it's not going to leave anyone disappointed. Avicii, deadmau5, Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia, Fatboy Slim, David Guetta, Kaskade, Afrojack, Armin Van Buren, Tiesto and many more are all set to appear. Basically, if you can think of a DJ alive on planet earth today, they're playing Ultra this year. Major Lazer? Yes. Knife Party? Yup. In fact, just put two random words together, because that guy is dj-ing Ultra, too.

Hell, even cutesie indie duo Matt & Kim are playing Ultra 2013, alongside electronic-leaning bands like Yeasayer, Hot Chip and Crystal Castles.
With a lineup this all-encompassing, we're kind of wondering who's even left for the impending second lineup announcement. Skrillex is really the only heavy-hitter they're missing. Well, that and DJ Pauly D.

Worth noting: deadmau5 is playing the fest despite bashing Ultra in the past. "Well, I caved in," Mr. Mau5 tweeted. "There was just too many of you guys asking me to play at ultra this year, so im doin it for you guys!" We're guessing that sweet EDM $$ probably had a lil something to do with his mood swing, too. After all, he's got a big wedding coming up, and those things don't pay for themselves… unless you're a Kardashian.
