Miami residents call for Ultra Music Festival to move location

Potential bad news for Ultra fans...

Ultra Music Festival takes place annually in Downtown Miami at Bayfront Park every March, but that may be about to change as local residents have started a petition to have the event moved from the area.

They argue that Ultra Music Festival, as well as Rolling Loud Music Festival which also takes place at Bayfront Park, overly restricts their access to the space.

The petition reads, “We, the residents of Downtown Miami and its neighboring communities deserve to have daily access to Bayfront Park – our neighborhood park. Instead, since the beginning of 2017, Bayfront Park has been closed to the public or in a state of disrepair for over 100 days because of mega-concerts like Ultra and Rolling Loud.”
