Ultra Music Festival is a yearly outdoor electronic music festival which has taken place for over 2 decades.
Since it was established back in 1999, Ultra Music Festival has been hosted at a variety of different venues throughout the Greater Miami area, with the most recent event taking place in Virginia Key Beach Park and Miami Marine Stadium.
It was first held on Miami Beach, and from 1999 to 2006 was only a 1 day festival. Due to increase in popularity, Ultra eventually ended up taking place over a 3 day period!
However, following a challenging year, Ultra yesterday released a statement outlining that they will in fact be pursuing a new permanent residency in South Florida.
Ultra have recognized the adverse criticism that they received in their post-festival surveys, in which fans complained about its “isolated location” and “transportation issues”, and so have decided that they are “willing to change things when they are not working” and have concluded that they will relocate.
Ultra have now willingly dismissed their license with the City of Miami, with rumours that the Homestead Miami Speedway could be the new placement of the festival.
