first_img Email News In 2018, Ultra Worldwide acquired Winter Music Conference, Miami’s longtime electronic music industry event and the place where the first Ultra Music Fest began in 1999, originally as a supplemental party to the event that has brought big-name DJ/producers to Miami for decades. The housing of WMC under the Ultra umbrella was envisioned to realign the two major electronic music events, with 2019 once again seeing the conference lead into the festival weekend. It is unclear how the festival’s new home will affect the timing of these two big events.Splash House: Justice, Armand Van Helden, Jai Wolf & TroyBoi Headlining June Poolside FestRead more Ultra Music Festival Will No Longer Be Held In Miami Twitter Ultra Music Festival Will No Longer Be In Miami ultra-music-festival-will-no-longer-be-held-miamicenter_img “We are now finalizing a new South Florida location that will serve as an incredible and permanent home,” reads a statement from the festivalAna YglesiasGRAMMYs May 9, 2019 – 1:18 pm Yesterday, March 8, Ultra Music Festival announced via an official statement that they will no longer be holding their flagship event in Miami and are “finalizing a new South Florida location.”The now-global electronic music company wrapped up its 21st annual fest in Miami on March 31, this time at a new location in Virginia Key, a small island a few miles from Miami proper, accessible by causeway. Following the event, as reported by the Miami Herald, the contract allowing Ultra Music Fest to take place at Virginia Key would be automatically renewed for 2020 unless either Ultra or the City of Miami revoked it within 60 days after the event had ended. The Herald says that on Wednesday, Ultra delivered a letter to the city stating they would be withdrawing from their partnership, a day before City of Miami commissioners were scheduled to vote on the matter.Ultra’s public statement explains they came to the decision after listening to feedback from the most recent event, writing; “the festival experience on Virginia Key was simply not good enough.” The event suffered from transportation issues when the majority of attendees tried to leave the island at the same time.Related: “On Location: Miami”: Meet Sweat Records Owner Lolo ReskinThe letter to fans explains the organizers are working on finding a new home for the 2020 fest, taking it out of Miami County for the first time, but keeping it in Southern Florida.”We are now finalizing a new South Florida location that will serve as an incredible and permanent home for Ultra Music Festival,” the statement continues. “We are in the process of putting the finishing touches on the final details that will ensure that this new location allows us to deliver the incredible experience that our loyal fans expect and deserve.” Facebook h May 6, 2019 – 12:29 pm Paavo Siljamäki At Miami Winter Music Conferencelast_img
