Miami votes down Ultra's return to Bayfront Park

Miami Commission votes down Ultra Music Festival’s return to Bayfront Park

In a surprise move, the Miami City Commission on Thursday unanimously voted down a contract for Ultra Music Festival to stay in Bayfront Park.

Caught in the fray of a political grudge match between two commissioners and mixed public opinion, Ultra Music Festival’s future in downtown Miami was dealt a significant setback when commissioners rejected the contract. Downtown residents who oppose the festival left City Hall smiling and high-fiving each other as festival organizers quietly conferred outside the commission chambers.

The vote could mean that Ultra won’t return to the park in 2019, which would be the first time in 18 years that Ultra is not on Miami’s waterfront. But organizers of the electronic dance music festival said afterward that they hope to salvage a concert at Bayfront Park in March.

Why is this a surprise? Condos always win in the end. Always.

Drugged-up kiddies don't vote and more importantly don't donate and bribe.

I used to think this was a bad thing, but it's actually a good thing. One cannot deny them the franchise, but if they choose to opt-out, then OK. The little shits usually support a welfare state and unbounded State violence, unless it concerns drugs, of course.

Oh come on, this place is a ghost town so I'm just gonna say what I want.

Um, one road in and out? Sounds like a nightmare.


Good thing I don't go out anymore.

Not gonna happen.

Key Biscayne and Fisher Island peeps are going to go postal about having 150,000 drugged up kiddies ruining their peace and quite.

Plus, they need the State Park and, well, state officials are a lot harder to bribe or intimidate.

Key Biscayne residents will file a lawsuit that will destroy Ultra's necessary prep time which will make the festival unworkable. They don't have time for the environmental and traffic studies they need.

Unreal. I think Kamen is right, this isn't over.

Ultra Music Festival gets new home on Virginia Key for at least one year

Under the deal approved by Miami commissioners Thursday evening, the festival agreed to pay a guaranteed $2 million to the city under a licensing agreement to hold the three-day event at two locations on Virginia Key — in the park outside the Miami Marine Stadium and in Historic Virginia Key Beach Park.

But in true Miami fashion, the process wasn’t simple. The long discussion, peppered with political bluster, was underscored by controversy stemming from Ultra’s reputation for blasting ear-splitting music and creating traffic problems.
