The company is exploring new spaces in South Florida.
It was recently announced that the annual Ultra Music Festival will not be held in Miami in 2020 after its city license was canceled.
Through a statement, the promoters confirmed that they are evaluating a new South Florida location “that will serve as an incredible and permanent home” for the event.
This year Ultra Music Festival moved to Virginia Key following the City of Miami vote against the show being held at Bayfront Park after 21 years. However, the decision was not beneficial for any of the parties.
In the statement, the festival organizers also expressed that after listening to the opinions of many of this year’s assistants, it was clear that the festival experience at the new venue “just was not good enough”. In addition, the Virginia Key Advisory Board voted against Ultra taking place there again in 2020 due to stressed fish and other environmental impacts in the area.
