Ultra Music Festival in Miami has officially been cancelled.
After the latest meeting with Miami City officials amid the coronavirus outbreak, the festival has made the difficult decision to cancel its main 2020 event. This will be the first time that it will not go on as planned since the festival started in 1999.
According to the Miami Herald, “City officials have yet to announce details of the change because attorneys are ironing out the legal issues tied to the decision, including the length of the delay, sources said.”
It’s been a rough couple of years for the festival, only last year Ultra was forced to Virginia Key after Miami officials voted against renewing Ultra’s contract at Bayfront Park. The festival was then voted back this year, to the delight of tens of thousands of fans. The lineup included many of the festival’s heaviest hitters, with the exception of Tiësto who wasn’t on the lineup for the first time since 2006. Subtronics, Kayzo, Fisher, Charlotte de Witte, The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, and more were all scheduled to perform.
