The setting of large scale Miami-based music festivals, Ultra Music Festival and Rolling Loud, is subject to change following the City of Miami’s recent “Sunshine Meeting” on December 15. A response to the petition prepared earlier in the year by The Miami Downtown Neighbors Alliance, the “Sunshine Meeting” united Miami Commissioners to meet to discuss the future schedule of events situated at Bayfront Park, including whether annual events like Ultra and Rolling Loud would be permitted to continue to use the venue.
The Miami Downtown Neighbors Alliance garnered more than 1,154 signatures on its Change.org based petition, which expressed Downtown Miami residents’ collective desire to have “daily access” to Bayfront Park, locals’ “neighborhood park.” Residents complained that the park had alternatively been closed to the public more often than it was open, the park “…in a state of disrepair for over 100 days because of mega-concerts like Ultra and Rolling Loud,” according to petitioners. The petition proposed a uniform ban on all music-related events in Bayfront Park.
The City of Miami has yet to make a formal announcement regarding its decision to either permit such music oriented events to continue to find their foothold in Bayfront Park, or to conversely oust the events altogether. A statement should soon arrive from City Commissioners, the content of which will undoubtedly prove impactful in the landscape of Miami music productions.
