Following the news that Ultra 2020 would not be taking place in Miami, organisers are pushing forward with seeking out new locations for the event.

One such location up for consideration is the Homestead-Miami Speedway which can be found around 30 miles southwest of Miami. According to the Miami Herald, CIty Manager George Gretsas has said that he's been made aware of talks taking place between Ultra and the Homestead-Miami Speedway.

"It is our expectation that at some point, they will formally submit a proposal," he told the Herald. Talks are said to be in their early stages so it's not yet known whether the deal will be done or how far it is from being made.

Ultra voluntarily terminated its license with the City of Miami earlier this week after it became clear that they would not be able to return to the Virginia Key base that 2019's event was held at.

"We have been approached by many interested parties over the years with offers to host the festival at some very unique and impressive locales," Ultra said in their statement. "One of these, however, has shined far above the others, and we look foward to making our home there for many years to come."

Next year's Ultra will be the first not to be held in Miami in 21 years.
