Ultra Music Festival broke up with the city of Miami on its own accord, deciding to hold the event at a venue that wouldn’t be so controversial. Ultra was teasing “a new South Florida location” for 2020, which is believed to be a Speedway. Specifically, the Homestead-Miami Speedway, which is only 30 miles south of the city.

Considering all of the drama, many would assume the story would end there, but there are some city officials who want to see it return. Specifically, the Miami City Manager Emilio Gonzalez is focusing on the economic setbacks the city faces because of this move. He says “That kind of economic impact for the residents of our city, I think it’s a huge loss, It’s unfortunate. If there is anything I can do to get them to reconsider, I would be happy to do it.” At the moment, he and council member Luis Laredo are discussing a return to a downtown venue rather than the slightly chaotic Virginia Key Beach venue. Another meeting is scheduled today, and Ultra’s officials have not yet commented on the city officials who want it back.
