Miami Commission Votes Down Ultra Music Festival’s Return To Bayfront Park

261 0

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

Having set up shop in the Downtown Miami location nearly two decades ago, South Beach’s flagship electronic music event has been caught in the crosshairs of a political grudge match between two commissioners and mixed public opinion for quite some time.

According to The Miami New Times, Commissioner Joe Carollo led the charge in denying the renewal of Ultra’s bid, citing the fact that downtown residents are sick and tired of the chaotic and loud festival that is “destroying the park’s environmental elements” and bringing “alcohol/drug-related violence” to the area.

While it remains unclear as to where Ultra Music Festival plans to locate next, tickets for the 2019 event went on sale earlier this week.
