Ultra Music Festival 2013: Ten Acts We're Excited to See

8. Sleigh Bells
Bro, if you are going to Ultra for the sick sets by Swedish House Mafia and Avicii, we're warning you, stay clear of Sleigh Bells performance or risk having your house music vibes completely annihilated by the New York-by-the-way-of-Florida duo. Part metal, part dance-rock, but pure noise, Sleigh Bells seems to create catchy melodies from chaos. If there is a chance a mosh pit will break out at Ultra, it's during Sleigh Bells set -- and frankly, we can't wait to see the look on everyone's faces when PLURality disappears for 45 minutes. This may be Ultra's riskiest booking yet.

7. Yeasayer
On the other side of the spectrum, if you need a break from all the hard beats and rumbling bass, Yeasayer will be there to keep the festival vibes going without completely rattling your brain. The band may fit better at festivals like Coachella or Bonnaroo, but with Passion Pit and Empire of the Sun having played Ultra in the past -- and fitting the same bill -- we expect festival-goers will appreciate taking a moment to put their dancing shoes away for a minute.

I liked how you called most of the U.K. gay for liking Azealia Banks.
