Breaking news coming out of Miami, Florida as the city unanimously votes down Ultra Music Festival‘s Bayfront Park contract. Ultra will now look for a new location for it’s March 2019 festival.
With Bayfront Park being perfectly located near the beach and beautiful downtown Miami, this is devastating news. The ultimate decision to decline the contract is directly related to the noise and traffic complaints by downtown residents. Another major factor was the extreme price increase that the city of Miami demanded in order to stage the 3-day festival.
There are a few ways to look at this decision, either the city council doesn’t care about the economic benefits of the concert, or they just really care for their downtown residents. Since the breaking news, Ultra Music festival has also released an official statement regarding the situation.
