BREAKING: City of Miami Approves Ultra's Contract for Virginia Key


After an extended debate, The City of Miami Commission has permitted Ultra Music Festival’s transfer to Virginia Key. We have discovered a fantastic deal in regards to the plan in the course of the deliberations. The commision assembly, which started at 9 a.m. at this time, included a number of statements from group members. Concerns included environmental hurt, noise air pollution, injury to wildlife, elevated site visitors and transportation points.

The Price

Originally Ultra was pushed to pay $2 million to remain at Bayfront Park. During this transfer to Virginia Key the contract was negotiated to be $1.four million. During deliberations a number of council members needed to push Ultra again to $2 million or extra. Their representatives argued that there’s a minimum of $800,000 in further transportation prices and the potential of a lot decrease attendance. Ultimately Ultra was requested to just accept the deal for $2 million to promote 60,000 tickets and so they accepted that deal.


Ultra’s Head of Production testified that the Miami Marine Stadium space might squeeze in about four levels. While Bayfront Park is about 32 acres, we weren’t given a complete sq. footage for each new areas mixed. The Miami Marine Stadium space is about 17 acres.

The Space Between

It’s gonna be a trek and a half, guys. Ultra’s personal individuals mentioned how European festivals function lots of strolling between the levels and “that’s what we try to create right here”. While we doubt they got down to create an extended stroll, that’s what we’ll get. The plan is to make use of a paved bike path between the Miami Marine Stadium and the Virginia Key Historic Beach. So get in form since you’re gonna trek it. Ultra will most likely break up the areas in order that related levels might be close to eachother, with individuals testifying that many individuals decide a stage and have a tendency to remain there.


Ultra plans on spending a minimum of $800,000 on transportation bills relating with this new venue. That contains busing for an estimated 50,000 individuals, water taxis, and rented parking garages.
