Ultra Music Festival announces 2020 dates and return to Bayfront ParkSHM Reunion Ultra Miami

Miami—Ultra Music Festival is coming home. After tumultuous back-and-forth concerning the future of Ultra Miami’s venue, the beloved music festival will officially return to Bayfront Park in 2020. This past year, Ultra faced difficulties adjusting to its relocated host venue on Virginia Key Beach including stranded attendees, marine life impact, and other logistical issues that led to heated reactions from city officials and festival-goers alike. Despite the backlash and Ultra disclosing a voluntary termination of their license, the City of Miami ultimately voted to allow the festival to return to Bayfront Park.

Ultra 2020 will take place March 20-22. Ticket registration is now open here.

Ultra officially announced its dates for the upcoming year on July 30, a week earlier than previous years and undeniably to ramp up anticipation for its big homecoming. In 2020, Ultra will also bring back their ‘Mission: Home‘ sustainability and environmental initiative.
