Kid Cudi says new music, tour coming in 2020Kids See Ghosts Kid Cudi 5a006bbe B80d 43cc 90ce 72958a243144

With performances at 2019’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival under his belt alongside his appearance at Miami’s recently concluded Rolling Loud, it’s clear that Kid Cudi has been effortlessly working his way through the festival circuit of late. And as per the “Pursuit Of Happiness” producer himself, Kid Cudi fans can expect these bookings to prelude some fresh new material. The rapper announced that new music would be on the way “next year,” as Cudi “work[s] the rest of this year,” presumably on the unheard productions to come.

Kid Cudi noted that he’s “in no rush to do anything right now,” but is nevertheless putting musical plans in motion, all of which will unfold in 2020. For the remainder of 2019, Cudi will continue to stop by festivals, but will save touring for 2020, when the artist plans to launch a fully fledged tour in support of the music slated to concurrently gain a release. While Cudi knows that his listeners are clamoring for a tour, he reassured his followers that he’s not only keeping busy, but has already begun “the next stage” of his presently developing sonic efforts.

Miami city commissioner to Ultra Music Festival: pay $2M annual fee to city to renew Bayfront Park contract, or relocate

This post was originally published on this site

Ultra Music Festival organizers will face a steep price tag if they wish to keep Miami’s veteran music event in its longtime location of Bayfront Park in the years to come.

The Downtown Neighbors Alliance (DNA) circulated a petition in July 2017 that called on Miami’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board to return access to Bayfront Park — DNA residents’ “neighborhood park” — to downtown Miami locals. “Since the beginning of 2017, Bayfront Park has been closed to the public or in a state of disrepair for over 100 days because of mega-concerts like Ultra and Rolling Loud,” the document read. The petition surpassed 1,100 signatures when it reached the hands of Miami Commissioner Frank Carollo.

Now, the feud between downtown Miami dwellers and large scale Bayfront Park hosted music events like Ultra Music Festival will come to a head as Carollo presents UMF orchestrators with a financially oriented ultimatum: pay $2 million annual payments to the agency that oversees Bayfront Park, or take Ultra elsewhere.

UMF organizers’ previous contract permitted the festival to occupy Bayfront for a five-year period. In exchange, Ultra Music Festival paid the city of Miami a sum comprised of a usage fee and a ticket surcharge that was then tacked onto the cost of each individual UMF admission cost. The city collected an average of about $663,000 from UMF over the five-year stretch, notably enjoying an elevated profit of $742,000 in 2018. Given that Ultra’s contract expired in 2018, festival organizers will need to make swift and strategic moves if they plan to keep Bayfront Park as Ultra’s home location.

While Miami residents like Rev. Pedro Martinez continue to call upon city officials like Carollo to ‘stop the prostitution of the park to multiple events,’ Ultra lobbyist Ray Martinez reiterates the global value inherent in the festival that, in many ways, put Miami on the musical map. ‘Let’s look at the positives,’ Ray Martinez said, ‘We talk about Miami wanting to be a world-class city. Ultra is a world-class event. It is the Art Basel of electronic music.’

Rolling Loud is also expected to face steep fees if it seeks to return to the park in future years of festival production. Neither Ultra nor Rolling Loud have commented on the recent contract related complications.
