Ultra Music Festival will be returning to Miami in 2020. The question everyone is wondering is where will it go? After claiming a new home on Virginia Key, festival organizers are hoping to claim again. However, key Miami officials do not believe it is a good idea.
Ultra Miami gave 2019 everything it had to offer, with a new venue, new stages, and a brand new Resistance Island. This lead to Traffic and all forms of transportation littered with traffic during the late nights. Attendees walked the bridge by the thousands after a long day of partying.
Despite the complications, Ultra’s chief of security Ray Martinez says he hopes to return to the key with a “well-oiled production.” Mr.Martinez said, “It was a great event in a beautiful location, and we look forward to being here next year producing and even improving on our festival.”
In order to improve upon the festival, Mayor Francis Suarez and City Manager Emilio Gonzalez expect to meet with representatives to review what worked and what did not during the three day event. Over those three days, 55,000 people appeared which will grow greatly over the one year period. Making it very important for the festival to adapt to what the people really need.
“I think putting 50,000 people in Virginia Key is not a good idea, there is only one way in and one way out. I think they need to find a better place for it.”Miami-Dade Mayor, Carlos Gimenez.
From Bayfront Park to Virginia Key who knows where Ultra Miami will end up next?
