Ultra Music Festival pulled a “You can’t fire me, I quit” move by voluntarily terminating its license with Miami one day before the city was scheduled to meet for a vote on the festival’s future. They announced the split in their response to the 20,000 surveys they received on the experience at Virginia Key beach park via social media, mentioning that they would be looking for a new location in South Florida.
“After listening to feedback from many of you, it is clear that the festival experience on Virginia Key was simply not got enough. […] We are now finalizing a new South Florida location that will serve as an incredible and permanent home for Ultra Music Festival.”
Today, some choice info from Miami Herald reveals the new location may be…you guessed it, a Speedway. Specifically, the Homestead-Miami Speedway, which is only 30 miles south of the city. Homestead City manager Goerge Grestast told the publication that he “was made aware of conversations between Ultra and the Homestead-Miami Speedway.” We can’t wait to hear the official confirmation, especially because it means that Miami Music week…can technically still be in Miami.
