Yesterday, we found out that the city of Miami and Ultra met and decided to postpone Ultra Music Festival for a year. The festival, which is two weeks away, brings people in from over 100 countries. With the spread of the coronavirus and the ensuing panic and caution, the city felt it was best to not hold the event right now.
People everywhere have been reacting to the news, DJs included. See some of the reactions below:
just heard Ultra Music Festival is postponed due to corona virus :(. Hope to see you soon Florida.

Not wanting to fuel unconfirmed speculation in any way but my nonrefundable flights to Miami are booked and I fully intend on going and playing some fucking tunes whatever happens.

Everyone asking me about MMW information….. I don’t know anything yet. But your best bet is to follow this thread. Albert is the reason I played my first ever Ultra in 2014 and a person I owe a lot of my career to- if anyone can save the day it’s him https://t.co/gy1wZRdk77

The City of Miami is still going to be a massive party with or without Ultra happening as thousands of people can't cancel their flights/hotels this late. So they'll be there raging for sure.
Buy your Miami Music Week event tickets now while they're still on sale!
