City of Miami Rejects Ultra Music Festival Returning for 2019

Ultra Music Festival called Miami home for many years. Every year, the festival brings thousands of dollars in revenue to the city as people from all over the WORLD experience first-class production. And after 18 years at the same location, Ultra Music Festival is going to have to find a new home.

During a vote today with the councilmen of Miami, the final vote for UMF was completely unanimous. Councilmen have been fighting for quite some time to get Ultra moved and cancelled. One of the Commissioners argued on behalf of the residents that lived near the festival, saying that it was “too loud and chaotic for the residential neighborhood.”

Others proposed a short-term agreement, something that at least guarantees it will return at Bayfront Park for next year, but they rejected the idea.

Ultra has not issued a statement quite yet. We will update this article when they do.

In the meantime, relive Ultra 2018 with the official aftermovie.

  1. I think this decision is more political than that! The straw or final piece that pushed has probably something to do with the problems they had this year with the officers commission and disputes.
