We’ve been waiting for this since December 16: the day Ultra Music Festival 2016 revealed the first tier of their line-up and the words Pendulum Return stuck out like a sore legendary thumb.
Instantly verified by the band on Twitter, hype has been bubbling ever since, reaching record levels last week when frontman co-producer Rob Swire teased us with rehearsal pictures and to-do lists. Now the time has come… At 9.40pm EST (1.40am GMT) the band will reform in their full live set-up for the first time since summer 2011.
The setting couldn’t be better: The climax to Miami Music Week, Ultra really kickstarts the summer festival season. Hundreds of thousands are there in person and thousands more are watching selected sets around the world. Pendulum will be top of the bill above the likes of Eric Prydz, Nero, Snails Tiesto, deadmau5 (who stepped in for The Prodigy last minute), Zedd and many many more over the course of what has appeared to be a hugely successful weekend and some spectacular production.
The fact that Ultra’s schedule now says Pendulum – Knife Party also intrigues… How will the band fuse past with present? Let’s watch on the live stream and find out…
If you’ve tuned in early in preparation, the timetable on the live stream is as follows (all times in EST):
8.05pm – Eric Prydz
8.45pm – Zedd
9.15pm – Armin Van Buuren
9.40pm – Pendulum – Knife Party
It’s time to hold our colour once again…. Watch the live stream below
