Miami Beach commissioners have voted against Ultra Music Festival’s relocation to the area in 2020.
Earlier this month, Ultra revealed that it had terminated its licence with City of Miami, confirming that it would be seeking a new location elsewhere in Florida. Earlier this week, talks opened that could have seen the festival being hosted at Miami Beach, near the city of Miami.
However, local commissioners ruled four against three yesterday against such a move.
Meanwhile, a separate vote earlier this week has paved the way for the event to be held at Homestead-Miami Speedway, 30 miles from Miami, next year. Now, having successfully petitioned later opening hours for events (2 am), it is looking increasingly possible that that could be a new home for the festival.
