The first phase of programming for March's Miami Winter Music Conference has been announced, with the likes of Seth Troxler and Carl Craig set to give interviews.
Ultra Music Festival 2020 tickets go on sale this week, with the three-day session returning to Miami's Bayfront Park.
The event had been forced to move from its longstanding home for this year's edition, leading to transport and organisational problems, with complaints from both punters and local members of the public alike in the wake of the weekend.
Insomniac has acquired an ownership stake for Club Space.
The legendary Miami venue has partnered with EDC's parent company to forge what is expected to be a long-lasting relationship.
Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella said, "Davide, Coloma and Sinopoli have done an exceptional job revitalizing this venue to be better than it’s ever been. They are passionate people that care about creating experiences, and share the same core values that Insomniac lives by."
With Ultra hoping to move back downtown for its 2020 edition following its relocation to Virginia Key earlier this year, details of the proposed license agreement that the festival will have to sign up to have begun to emerge.
Amongst the alledged license proposals tabled by Miami's city commission is a reduction in the festival's Sunday curfew to 10PM, the expectation that Ultra pay for police and fire services for the weekend on top of the $2 million fee to use the space and a decrease in the decibel limit from 110 to 104.
Ultra Miami could be returning to the iconic Bayfront Park location following a resolution from City of Miami.
Earlier this year City of Miami chose not to extend the contract for Ultra at Bayfront Park, which prompted the move to Virginia Key this year.
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.
Miami City Council has reopened talks that could see the city host Ultra again in 2020. Meanwhile, a separate vote has paved the way for the event to be held at Homestead Speedway next year.
Following complications late last year surrounding its use of usual home Bayfront Park, Ultra was forced to move this year to a new base of Virginia Key elsewhere in Miami. Naturally, attention has now shifted to what will happen in 2020.
This year's new home did have its issues for organisers, with heavy traffic and transportation complications causing a particular headache for attendees at the end of the first day. A new home did give Ultra a chance to introduce new stages and refresh its Resistance Island concept though.
