Deadmau5 Slams Ultra Music Festival Over Ticket Prices and Exclusivity Contracts

Deadmau5 falling out of love with Ultra?
Well, I guess there's one act you won't be seeing at Ultra Music Festival 2012: Deadmau5. The EDM superstar posted a 12-minute rant on YouTube, slamming the electronic fest for ticket prices and exclusivity contracts.

"Ultra to me is the definition of insanity: Doing the same fucking thing every year, expecting different results every time," says Deadmau5 (AKA Joel Zimmerman) in the clip. "It's fun and it's cool, and if you've never been, go. But if you are one of those dudes that go every year, it's like why would you go again?"

This year's high ticket price also seems to be an issue for Zimmerman. "Five hundred and ninety-five fucking dollars for a ticket?" he adds, referring to the VIP prices. "Wow, someone is laughing to the bank."

But don't worry Miami, the Mau5 still loves us. He just doesn't seem to like the whole festival approach.



"I hate these fucking festivals things, you know. Some are great; some are not so great. It's a bit much."

But what pisses Zimmerman off about Ultra specifically? "When they used to do it during the conference, it was awesome. But then there was some bullshit going down too. I'm not gonna say anything about anyone. But say you are a headliner DJ dude, Ultra will pay you X amount of dollars to be exclusive to Ultra, which I guess is alright if you are an A-liner ... [Winter Music Conference] used to be the Christmas for the fucking DJ, because you go to Miami for a week and play up to eight gigs that fucking week, easily."

Zimmerman contends that Ultra exclusivity contracts has taken away artists' ability to play throughout the week at their own leisure.

He also calls the festival a "pissing contest between dudes who played all over the world," saying that the sheer amount of headliners results in a production nightmare.

"It's like that for all major North American festivals ... Even if you don't want to, you are competing against the festival programmer, you are competing against the other acts, you are competing against the time slots."

We emailed Ultra's press contact for comment and are still awaiting a response.

We could quote this video all day long, but check out the clip if you want hear Deadmau5's entire spout, and you can decide for yourself if you agree or disagree.

Deadmau5 will actually be in Miami on Sunday at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach for a New Year's Day party poolside with tickets starting at $125 and going as high as $15,000 for a side-stage table.

" Cheapest at ultra: $300. Cheapest at the FountainBleau: $125. Do the damn math." hahaahahaha. Ultra: 3 days, over 100 Artists, FountainBleau: 4 hours, maybe 2 Artists. Do the math.

 Using natural products will make your skin healthier. You will not have harmful side effects that can often be found with products containing chemicals. In many facial creams you will find chemicals that you have never heard of. Many also contain chemicals that are suspected (some even proven) to cause cancer. Those are worries you will not have to face if you are using organic facial creams and cleansers.

Ok guys, time for some clarification...One, he is NOT a dj. He even said it himself in an interview a little over a year ago. He just considers himself a producer, nothing more...no, i cannot find the article at this time, sorry. Second, for all you whiny little retards saying "HURR he's bashing ultra for high ticket prices when he himself is playing at the FountainBleau that sells tables for $15k HURR DURR" notice that that is the MAX. You're supposed to be comparing floor prices people. Cheapest at ultra: $300. Cheapest at the FountainBleau: $125. Do the damn math. Also, about you with the rebuttle of "Oh, but at ultra, you get to see a whole slew of artists" So what? Like Joel [Deadmau5] said, the experience is crap. Rather pay cheaper and get a better experience then pay more and get a crappy experience. Quantity vs quality people. 

Inb4: Butthurt ultra fans come in and try to bash me.

Deadmau5 is awesome. U will be missed this year Joel.

I agree 100% with DeadMau5. I've gone to 7 Ultra's from 2001 - 2007. They were great back in the day, but now it's just a overpriced clusterfuck. Greedy assholes - that's what the organizers of ULTRA-SUCKFEST are.

mau5head = TROLL bait
mau5head = TROLL bait

I saw the mau5ie in Austin in 2006, and a "disc jockey" is NOT what Joel is. Joel produces sounds on stage, mixes them up via his well-known gadgets through Ableton. He makes his sounds, and then does different combos with them on stage. Then 15 year old jail baits take pills like at UMF, and call it the best night ever. The shit he does is not hard. I've actually been able to loop and stick pads and reverbs to his stuff and make it sound just as good. When mau5 played Sky in Austin, I stood 2 feet from him, and a dj does not program sounds on a laptop and then chats with his friends until the shows over. A dj spins the music, whether on cd or vinyl, and makes a good mix. That damn mau5head is what got all you trolls.

Oh yea, and $15K for a damn ticket is ridiculous. I've seen 7 djs and producers play a gig for $60.

he's mad because a lot of people didn't like his set at Ultra last year and said it was a repeat of the year before

It seems most of the people here have missed the point of what he was saying. Ultra has turned into an exclusive, outdoor VIP nightclub for rich people.I feel bad for kids into the music who just want to see a good show but can't afford it... but that's capitalism.

this is hilarious. deadmau5 complaining about "Doing the same fucking thing every year, expecting different results every time". that describes his music perfectly!

then he complains about high tickets prices. that describes his events perfectly!

douchebag.

First off, everybodY here has some great points on the ticket rubbish. So IMHO , I Think he might have just been trying to say that he thinks the concept of exclusive rights to artists for festivals that take place during a huge party/music conference week is counter productive to the scene. Shit, if I ever were to be able to get a gig at the lousy Red Lobster in miami I'd be stoked, But If the RL (red lobster (American seafood joint)) Gig's promoter came at me with a week of free surf and turf (7 months before the gig) so that I wouldn't play moombatone anywhere else but red lobster when I got there there!? He'd be shit out of luck, because what if my buddy Fred throws a last minute party at the 5guys down the block a day or to after my sunset time slot at RL , and he didn't have it all sorted in time to have contracts and lobster like RL but wanted me as a special secret guest Xylo-batone act. IMHO I think it's stupid that ultra sees it fit to have exclusive contracts with artists like they do, maybe if deadrat Played in a 100-200 person club or a cool clothing store (m_nus crew ADE 2009 gesus clothing store wtf!?) without that cheesy thing on his head I might actually want to go see him do what ever he does with other people's musc and his own, and see what his real deal is. But I guess he's been greedy in the past and liked the concept of have his weeks worth of RL and only one set at an over crowded salad bar. I feel you rat boy, until you change your bookings and take off that stupid hat thing, I don't think il ever see you play. 2012 Do It.

Miami is and always will be a big shake down. $36 for overnight parking... $25 drinks... $299 for GA admission to Ultra, $70 Service Charge Per Tickets, and $11.25 for shipping on top of all that. The $299 is ok for 3 days of music I can respect that, but what the hell are these "FEES" paying for?  Fee is just another word for bullsh#t.

He is just on is period because he didn't get the exclusive and when he wasnt that big back in 05 when they gave Tiesto priority over him.... Sounds like a bunch a sand got in his vagina.. I love Ultra and have been every year since 09 and I love it every time sooo he can go play his other shit....

Yes he agrees. Ultra is way too expensive. I used to go and it would only cost $40 u could walk up and get in free a few years ago I had found next day tickets not used on the ground. But now that they cost sooo much it's rediculous the price literally doubled I used to pay like $120 per ticket for 2 days then the next year it was a fucking scam cuz I'm on there mailing list for when tickets go on sale I signed up while I was there 2010 then for 2011 I check the site tix not on sale next day it says sold out and VIP only left for $500+ each person rediculous that would have got me almost 2 ppl in the previous yr. Cuz VIP the yr. Before was only $300 something. Then at midnight the night the site said sold out I get my email stating tickets r on sale. When I goto the site there sold out with just a few VIP for like $600 almost with taxes and service fee shipping and handling plus the hidden fees it gets well over that. But that's not even the most disgusting part and most likely why wmc split IMO is that ticket brokers now had 100s of tickets each. So before they ever went on sale to the public I guess they opened them up for sale privately to brokers who then charged double and triple for general admission and suddenly it cost $500 for GA then to get VIP it was well over $1000 thats not including all the other bullshit fees which really pisses me off cuz I have gone to this thing for like 10 years now and I love the music and I go for certain acts. But now that were in a full on depression and everyone is broke they double up on prices I'll never afford to go to another ultra ever again. We got this idea that it might be cool to goto the after party clubs cuz u can catch a big name dj live in a more comfortable intimate setting but even those prices doubled from the rediculous $20 from previous yrs. To $40 and a no name dj and come to find out u only get 2 hrs cuz the clubs r no longer all night parties like they used to be but they close at 2am last call time ultra isn't a continuous event they shut down at midnight every night so now the $40 after party only last2 hrs and the line is long to so by the time u get in it's over and more $ down the drain. Not to mention that the price of water was $5 per 20 oz. Bottle they know they have ppl by the thousands that r drunk forget buying alcohol if waters $5 and most of the ppl r on ecstasy which kills if they dehydrate. Security won't let u bring water or Gatorade in cuz quote as a security lady told me n my fiancé in 2010 when we last attended she said to us "for all we know this backpack and bottles could be a meth lab." are u kidding me we had just got them from walgreens they were still cold and in the bag sealed with the Reciept. But were cooking meth without any other equipment besides water and Gatorade WTF that bitch was on crack or something. Unless this is what they are told to say cuz Miami pd is looking over there shoulder and day2 was cracked down hard on security due to fence jumpers on day1 thanks to those idiots we were allowed to bring in sealed water and cigs even some food as long as we didn't have obvious amounts of drugs and weapons we passed the search with no problem. Not on day2. Also food is priced at $7-$10 per anything u buy and u can't leave and come back in. Then once it was over we skipped the no name djs after party they seemed lame and we were tired so we went back to the hotel which was a cheap price of &79 a night we got 3 to have a recovery day. Plus the gas at $3 a gallon to get there back in 2010 it cost well over $1000 per person to just go and not buy any CDs after parties no VIP no souvenirs nothing but tickets water gas hotel and food. So now that the price has tripled in just a yr and now 2 years I'll be missing out breaking a ten yr tradition the only once a yr cut loose and see my fav djs break I got is too over priced so I agree with Joel completely now only the rich can go during an economic crisis they want to try to get rich they already are rich I mean they have almost every artist on an exclusive label. And I bet the price Jump had allot to do with armin being #1 last yr but they also have guetta. And now they have asot 500 and 550 this year armins my fav artist and I listen to asot every week I have all his CDs am a major fan and saw him every yr at ultra since it's the closest fest to me Miami only 2hr drive and I never see his tours hitting any of the clubs there so this is the only time he visits Fl traditionally and now I'll never afford to go even if I spend 2 of my months checks I'll never be able to afford it unless I sleep on the street for 3 days walk there and don't eat or do drugs it's just not possible. It's not like ultra really needs this insane amount of $ either most every album I have says ultra on it they have many many other outlets for income this is not were they should stick it to us especially when we pay them for all there CDs since they sign everyone. And that exclusivity contract sucks cuz they ruined the most beautiful 2weeks of the yr. For Miami and music fans & djs alike cuz now we can go to clubs and see a surprise dj from ultra we have to see no names and now the price of everything follows suite and over charges when were in a time were no one has $ they should just charge bare minimum and use it as a tax right off and call it a charity event for depression and anxiety and arthritis boom the trifecta like I scored by being born with and live on disability only making $600 a month for ever so fest are now out of the picture for me my fav past time activity that used to be affordable and leisurely and held great surprises at after parties cuz it was with wmc and any artist could show up and spin for fun in the good old days. But now it's almost a BEUROCRATIC mess. Not to mention parking in 2010 was $40 for a few hrs. Which was almost always run by hustlers who didn't even own the property and usually resulted in getting towed away or getting a ticket or even ur car broken into and everything stolen since it's held in the half ghetto downtown Miami TE areas around bicentennial park are not places u want 2 leave a car unattended. Plus they never sell more then 6 hours of parking the fest last 12 and u can't re enter so it's a cop ticket trap or u can pay up to $75 back then for 12 hr parking. So not only do u miss ur fav djs cuz the line up always has them playing on 2stages at the same time and it's difficult to get around inside the festival grounds due2 crowding and the overall setup. Plus restrooms r a mess lines 100s of people long for potapotties that r disgusting and usually have human waste that ur just stepping in. Also in 2010 they had the genius idea to set up a row of said porta-potties on the hill behind a heiniken bar also placed on the same hill so guess were all the water and sewage went. Down hill and it was aimed at the main stage yay for that one. The entire experience for a sober person stumbling in muck from said sewage that they covered in hay geniously as if that would soak up all that nasty piss shit and runoff from the bar. It didn't not at all it just made shitty piss covered hay get stuck to ur feet and my girl dressed up for the event regretted that allot almost lost her shoe sandal thing high heal cuz this turns everything into a mud that was like quick sand I had almost broken my ankle walking cuz u can't see the ground since ur in a massive crowd trying to push they're way forward to see guetta drop sexy chick. My girls leg got sucked into this sewage and I almost told her to ditch her shoe which would have been worse cuz some areas have sharp rocks and they don't sell any kind of shoes. There's no water hose to clean off so it just really is a buzzkill and I wasn't feeling it after paying top dollar the only part I enjoyed was the 3 djs I managed to see the entire set of tiesto armin and deadmau5 and they put on the best shows the lights were great but u can never get close enough to be in the fog and confetti cuz that's for VIP. They not only have there own bathrooms, that also run down hill into the mainstage crowd area, but they get seats a covering and the entire front row beyond this gate like thing to hold the crowd back. Now the venue changed supposedly but has the same address this maybe why some of the reason the price went up but triple in 2yrs is allot. For a messy wet cold no seats lots of security walking in feces and God knows what else. That by the time that who ever u were waiting to see comes on stage ur tired sore and miserable ready to go home this takes allot out of u. Now back in 2008&2009 it was great and I couldn't stop talking about it and told all my friends that this was the event of the yr. Cuz it was we didn't have this wet mess nor was the price of admission terrible it was at most $60-$75 a day and it used to go 48hrs no kicking us out at midnight so we only need a hotel for 1day after the event water was still like $3-$4 a bottle and a good time was to be had I think it really peaked back then and was very relevant and the wmc just made it an amazing way to end the week of parties and the convention u could see the artist at a club later if u missed them since overlapping wasn't as bad it was done right so fans of one genre went to one tent for Carl cox and the drum n bass ppl did there thing then trance did the other parts and u got to see everyone u wanted not 5mins of so n so's set then 10 of this dj and or just stay and wait at mainstage had great lineup so u could park there and see them all now it's chaos there's stampedes since the schedule is chaotic and has ppl rushing and pushing to get to a place. I can understand why any dj wouldn't like festivals. But I went to edc in loo of going to ultra for only 1/4th the price for 2days still got to see some triple a top 10 djs tiesto corsten skrillex afrojak Calvin Harris bunny rabbit in the moon and many more bunch of dubstep. And the only gripe I have is the security was way too tight basically don't bring anything but water was free u buy 1 for only $3.50-$4 a bottle u only had to buy once then u could take that to a filling station that gave free refills so instead of wasting $60 for 2 ppl in 4 hrs at ultra on water edc was like $4 one time. They also have carnival rides which are awesome at an event like this only problem was the guys running the free rides were dicks and decided to be sexist and say females only or if a girl vouched for u would they let u on u could easily spend 4hrs in line. This was in Orlando and had all kinds of cool art displays like lights and stuff the restrooms were plentiful and had sinks outside they weren't placed on a hill but on the low ground and the festival was held at a baseball stadium outside around the field so it made sense. They didn't have the awesome tents ultra does but the overall experience was way better and ultra could learn allot from electric daisy carnival. Which I hope grows allot more and gains tents and lightens up on security, they had 3 people search u before u got to get in rediculous, and they don't let u bring cigs in if the pack isn't sealed which is a dumb rule cuz they said they maybe weed cigs. I'm like really I just opened it in line smoked 1 while waiting and when have u seen a perfectly rolled joint that's perfect like a machine did it such as a marborol cig so he let me keep a few and then threw them away as well as my candy I keep for just in case my blood sugar gets too low from lack of food during 8 hr event and dancing like crazy I'm slightly hypoglycemic and passout sometimes but sugar fixes it as fast as it comes on. Besides that and the guys running the rides thinking cuz they let chicks on and let them decide what guys get to go with them holding the line up forever. Those are pretty minor issues compared to ultra fest which used to be like this without rides and with tents instead. And for now 1/10th the cost it used to be edc is the much better event tho lacking the many more super djs. But I think as time goes on that more will show up or if they time it right and try to make it on a date that djs can make it. Better then double booking at ultra which I'm done with edc is now my event unless they decide to go and jump the price to the sky as well then I'll never go to any. I could almost go catch armin at another country for cheaper then i can at ultra. But I'm glad now maybe I'll actually be able to see deadmau5 this year at that pool party since I'm in Miami once a month anyway if the tickets arent rediculous$15k is worse then ultra. But that maybe the venue. But at least teh mou5 can now show up at clubs for fun and not be exclusive that's cool so after parties will be worth it yay. I hope armin does the same and does a separate venue for just asot but now that I know this ultra contract exist this is why they all go there instead of have private parties. Pvd has his own thing going on across the street last time I went and he wasn't on the list either. Maybe this tells us something about ultra. And edc cost 1/4-1/3rd the price of ultra I only paid $150 for 2 days that's how much I used to pay for ultra thought it was allot back then since we used to pay $40 and each yr it'd only go up like $5-$10 so it wasn't so bad and was more fun. But my question is this if edc can make a profit a a popular ball park stadium venue and ultra uses bicentennial park which usually is free to the public unless marley fest which happens a month before is still only $40 then why do they charge $500 per person? They got away with it last year so there going to keep doing it and it's going to keep going up. WTF ultra it was fun while it lasted I was even willing to deal with the cons of attending. But this price thing sucks too much. And last yr was a scandal it sold out before tickets went on sale to the public that is low. Idk if it's all ultra records or just the event that got way too greedy but they have to change there only exploiting the fact that edm is not going mainstream so we have to keep it underground again somehow the artist we love we have to keep things plur. End rant

So he doesn't like playing at festivals.... but he admits in this video that he's extremely excited and "beside himself" about lollapalooza. maybe he doesn't like playing EDM festivals since he's no longer the biggest and baddest performer?

mau5 even admitted that he has been depressed, and that he shouldn't be saying such bullshit. He also had to apologize to Headhunterz from the UK for something he said right during the same time he made that video.

First of all why is everyone saying that deadmau5 is jealous that he didn't get invited. To me it seems more likely that he turned it down. Anyways i think ultra has lost touch with the people. Sure people are buying up the tix for $400, but how many people think that's a just price. Anyways Im gonna pay 50 bucks and go watch Swedish house mafia with Calvin Harris and maybe even the mau5. Better value if you ask me.

00:35 seconds into the the video you can tell that Joel is jealous at the fact that they didnt even bother inviting him back. I respect him so much for the great producer that I believe him to be. As a fan who has seen him at ultra + many other acts, its really fair that Ultra not invite him back. All he did was press play and bore all his fans to sleep. Hes amazing and a great contributor to the scene, but Ultra is not gonna hire anyone who cant perform live. The fact that he says he does not want to compete with other dj's show that he CANT compete against them because he cant mix, because he cant get his crowd aroused, because HES NOT A DJ.

Why are people comparing LIV here. LIV is for the folks who have money to fling around because they don't give a shit. It's trust fund babies and rich jews. The venue will always determine what the ticket cost will be. As for the Table costs, well its a table. Do any of you go to clubs at all. You seem to be shocked at prices for tables in South Beach.  LIV is beyond over-hyped. I mean if your thing is to spend your entire lifes savings drinking in one night. GO THERE, but for real EDM fans we want to go dance and hang out with friends.

If you're paying more than $15 just to catch a DJ set, you're doing something very wrong (moreso if it's at some sleazy glittering South Beach fuckhole with $10 beers and VIP bullshit). Deadmau5 is only able to publicly vent like this now because he spent the last six years sucking off every promoter that would throw a gig his way. He's as much a tool as the other festival headliner DJs. Who does he think he's kidding?

His tangent on Daft Punk is almost irrelevant, since Daft Punk hasn't put out a proper album (which wasn't even all that great) in over six years, and hasn't toured in four.

So its ok for him to talk shit about Ultra being 300 dollars, yet headline an event that only fucking rich snobs can go to?  THAT seems pretty idiotic.  I dig some of his tunes, but I think he's another spoiled DJ who thinks his shit don't stink.

Ultra music festival is over the top with prices. Shm here I come.... I am sure it will be a great lineup. Deadmau5 is a great producer and if he does not feel like performing umf then. Power to him. Other producers,performers or dj's should be aknowledge. even though umf is 300+ it is going to be awesome as usual.

Only people who are immature and jealous act the way he does.  Its ok to be a little pissed that you weren't invited to the party, its another thing to rant on youtube for 14 minutes like an idiot.  He won't admit it, but I bet you he wished he never stooped that low.

Then you'll spend every time you go out dancing very disappointed. The people that get paid are usually people who do this as their main job, and as such, are generally more interested in making sure that people have an enjoyable time. 

Now, if you don't like dance music, then why'd you bother commenting at all?

So it's not that he cares about the fans or the music, it's only himself? He's spot on about this issue, and for the record I was never a big fan of his music or gimmick. While it must be nice to be spending mommy and daddy's money freely, a lot of people bust their ass for it, especially in this economy, and to charge $300+ for something that was no more than $100 a couple of years ago is asinine and an affront to the scene.

That's so sick. I also made a mau5 head and can see me in the front row at ultra with red X's. Met him in NY walking down the street b4 his show. Mad cool. He's like no other dj. Ull never see him play the same set back to back or just hitting play. He's def 1 of the best djs out there.

It was $100 a couple of years ago because it was 1 day. Now it's 3 days = $300. Make sense? Why is everyone bitching about the price when every other festival is the same crap? Lollapalooza, Coachella, EDC....it's all the same price! 

sshh..
sshh..

Yeah, and that's why they are almost sold out right? The economy doesn't make a difference when it comes to getting together with a bunch of music fans for three days listening to nothing but the best in music out there. People pay more for just one act, this is multiple acts coming together in an amazing festival. But keep on hating people, it's not like it makes a difference to Ultra or their sales. I know I'll be there having a good ol' time while you people moan and groan.

And up until last year they released $100 SINGLE DAY PASSES. Now it's $300 or bust. Think about why that's wrong, and how that's a quick cash grab. What if i don' wanna go all 3 days? Unless they give you 3 individual tickets and you can craigslist them or something.

Justin Bieber concerts sell out all the time too. People pay more for one act sometimes yes. Roger Waters is coming down here, I love it, but I know where my financial priorities lie. Like I said before, just because you have the money and can afford to go doesn't mean that a lot of other people, who may love EDM even more than you do can as well. I don't care how good the lineup is, those prices are insane especially compared to past Ultras.

Cliffs Notes: a fool and his money are soon parted.
