Miami City Council votes in favor of Ultra Music Festival move to Virginia Key

Miami City Council votes in favor of Ultra Music Festival move to Virginia KeyUltra 2018 Mainstage ALIVE Coverage

In late September, news surfaced that Ultra Music Festival had been booted from its longtime home at Bayfront Park. It didn’t take long for the event organizers to propose a new host venue about ten minutes away on Virginia Key, and on November 15, the Miami City Council brought the proposal to an official vote. Even amid contentious opposition from Rapture Music Festival and residents of Key Biscayne, the vote passed — officially moving Ultra to a new home for the first time since 2001.

After more than three hours of heated deliberation, Miami Marine Stadium and Historic Virginia Key Beach Park in Virginia Key became the new host venue for Ultra Music Festival. The vote ended 4-1 in favor of the move, though the decision ultimately came down to two council members on the edge of a “yes” vote. The two year deal does include some contingencies — there’s the possibility of revocation within 60 days after the 2019 festival if certain circumstances occur. What’s more, Ultra has to pay $2 million to the city of Miami in order to sell up to 60,000 tickets to the festival.

But perhaps the grass will be greener in Virginia Key as Ultra opens a new chapter in the festival’s illustrious history. We’ll see come March, 2019.

Resident backlash erupts as draft of Ultra Music Fest’s Virginia Key agreement surfaces

Resident backlash erupts as draft of Ultra Music Fest’s Virginia Key agreement surfacesUltra Music Key Biscayne Resident Backlash

With their 18-year run in Miami’s downtown coming to a sudden end, Ultra Music Festival is in the process of moving its flagship three-day fest to Virginia Key — but it’s not all all palm trees and PLUR for the residents of neighboring Key Biscayne. A draft of the agreement in question has surfaced, and the island is rallying heavily in opposition to the proposed plan.

With the island only reachable via Ultra’s prospective new home, residents held an emergency meeting on November 5 to air concerns ranging from noise, environmental damage, unmanageable traffic, and more. From all accounts, this isn’t just an average neighborhood rabble — citizens have hired a PR firm for the fight ahead, and promise to mobilize and resist the agreement however possible. With the November 15 vote to secure Ultra’s new home fast approaching, the sudden pushback could spell trouble for the fest’s future digs.

Ultra confirms intention to move to Virginia Key

Ultra confirms intention to move to Virginia KeyUltra Recap 1

Tumultuous times have fallen upon Ultra‘s flagship Miami edition. Resident efforts and other factors culminated in a “no” vote from the City Commission to renew their five-year license, ending an era that lasted nearly two decades.

But the show must go one, as they say. The behemoth festival brand has set its sights on the nearby Virginia Key, per a dual confirmation from organizers and city officials that negotiations were in the works to move to this location. Currently, plans are to move the iconic three-day dance festival over to the Miami Marine Stadium; however, complications have already arisen due to the fact that the Miami International Boat Show takes place at the same time and venue. Ultra has noted their desire to run the festivals “in tandem” with one another, in two separate areas of the park. They’ve also run into an obstacle with Rapture Festival’s booking on the space, but organizers are fairly confident the smaller, underground-focused event will end up moving locations should their plans come to fruition.

A vote to determine whether or not the move to Virginia Key will be able to take place will be held on November 15.
