Ultra Music Festival sued for allegedly violating the American with Disabilities Act

This post was originally published on this site

Ultra Music Festival is being sued for allegedly violating the American with Disabilities Act.

Juan Carlos Gil, a Paralympic athlete and blind activist has sued UMF because he claims that Ultra’s website and live events are not easily accessible for the visually impaired, or those with other disabilities. However, this is not Gil’s first lawsuit. He has previously sued Winn-Dixie Stores for their website’s inaccessibility for the visually impaired.

The 30-page suit is supposedly a “public motion for greater inclusivity,” rather than an indictment on Ultra.  Ultra has been under legal scrutiny in the past for incidences such as Ultra Music Festival 2014, when security guard Erica Mack was trampled by a gatecrashing mob that rushed the festival’s fences.

Scott R. Dinin, the lawyer assigned to the ADA case, has commented,  

“All we’re asking [Ultra] to do is recognize [that] this is a very diverse population, to make all their offerings available to all people in that population. We think it’ll make it a better Ultra experience and, obviously, a better Miami… I think the biggest misperception of this law is that people don’t understand that it’s been law for 25 years, this same law is a civil rights law.”

Following these accusations, Ultra Music Festival has yet to comment on the suit.

In a rapidly stagnating and increasingly shallow EDM industry, Canadian producer Tep No is a breath of fresh air.

This refreshing take on electronic music hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the producer has been featured on Spotify’s Viral Chart in seven countries.

The multi-talented producer’s latest single, “Toluca Lake,” is a laid-back and intimate single that showcases just what Tep No is all about. The soft-spoken track features Tep No’s sultry vocals, over a subtle yet catchy melody lead by an acoustic guitar, giving the track a relaxing yet delicate feel.
