The festival’s Phase 1 lineup was previously announced, and now RESISTANCE has unveiled a stellar lineup of house and techno headliners to join the 2023 lineup.

Two stages, The Megastructure and The Cove, will host some of the most coveted underground acts in the world. The Megastructure’s immersive, technology-driven build is the perfect haven for house and techno heavyweights, while The Cove will offer a breathtaking view of Miami’s Biscayne Bay.

Oliver Heldens, a legend of Dutch dance music, and deadmau5, a master of electronic music production, will make a special world debut as HI-LO b2b Testpilot, as was revealed in the Phase 1 lineup reveal.

Carl Cox will once again present his mesmerizing concept at The Megastructure after making his Hybrid Live debut at Ultra Music Festival in 2022 during a three-hour headlining set.

The RESISTANCE 2023 lineup is packed with first-time back-to-back sets. Festival favorites Adam Beyer and Eric Prydz will display their techno prowess as Adam Beyer Cirez D for the first time ever at Ultra, while Swedish techno legend Ida Engberg and renowned underground force Maya Jane Coles also make their b2b festival debuts.

Following the previous announcement of Ultra veterans and Afterlife label bosses Tale of Us as headliners, RESISTANCE adds a bevy of fellow returning headlining acts including fast-rising Italian techno talent Anfisa Letyago, GRAMMY-nominated UK duo Camelphat, German DJ/producer Chris Liebing, Italian techno maestro Enrico Sangiuliano, Deep Moves label founder Ilario Alicante, SolidGrooves label boss Michael Bibi, and a stirring live performance from modern techno shapeshifter Stephan Bodzin. Mathame, a captivating brother duo, will play their first-ever Ultra Music Festival set and present their distinctive melodic techno sounds.

After making their North American debut at Ultra Music Festival, Popof x Space 92 Present ‘Turbulences’ will make their world debut at RESISTANCE Tokyo, followed by appearances at RESISTANCE Seoul and RESISTANCE Bali.

The Cove will feature Ultra’s first-ever stage takeovers by Nicole Moudaber’s highly-influential label, global party brand, and award-winning weekly radio show In The Mood, as well as Dutch legend Joris Voorn Presents Spectrum concept which encompasses club nights, festival stages, and a global broadcast radio show. These two first takeovers join Claude VonStroke’s takeover by his West Coast-based underground imprint Dirtybird, which was previously announced.
