The residents of Downtown Miami and its neighboring communities, have joined forces to create a petition for the city of Miami to refuse the renewal of Ultra Miami and Rolling Loud Festival.
The residents say they deserve to have daily access to Bayfront Park, and the petition is currently on its way to 1,000 signatures.
“We, the residents of Downtown Miami and its neighboring communities deserve to have daily access to Bayfront Park – our neighborhood park,” the petition reads.
“Instead, since the beginning of 2017, Bayfront Park has been closed to the public or in a state of disrepair for over 100 days because of mega-concerts like Ultra and Rolling Loud.
In addition to destroying the park’s environmental elements, including trees, turf and landscaping, these events regularly force thousands of Downtown residents to flee the area to avoid the unbearable noise, traffic, and alcohol/drug-related violence present at and around these events.”
Whether this petition ends up becoming a problem for these mega-sized festivals will be discovered in time. Check out the petition website in order to keep up to date on the situation.
