After days of news reports and speculation, Ultra Music Festival organisers have officially announced the postponement of their huge 2020 edition in Miami, due to coronavirus fears.
Organisers of Ultra Music Festival, where 100,000 people from more than a hundred different countries unite, have officially postponed this year’s massive edition at Miami’s Bayfront Park from March 20 – 22, 2020 to March 26 – 28, 2021!
“Due to the Florida Governor’s declaration of a public health emergency and Centers of Disease Control and Prevention’s Interim Guidance for COVID-19, it is impossible for the City to provide access to Bayfront Park at this time,” organisers shared on Ultra Music Festival’s website.
Performers were to include Armin van Buuren, Aly & Fila, Andrew Rayel, Gareth Emery, ilan Bluestone, Markus Schulz, Rodg, Ruben de Ronde, Sander van Doorn pres. Purple Haze, Tritonal and many more.
“We completely understand how extremely frustrating this is because so many of you are looking forward to coming to Ultra, having already made travel arrangements. This is, however, an unprecedented issue which is not being taken lightly, and we must continue to defer to the authorities for guidance. Ultimately, there is no higher priority for us than the health, safety and physical well-being of each of you, together with everyone else involved in the production of the event,” organisers wrote.
Festival goers with a ticket will be contacted by email on Monday regarding next steps.
Meanwhile, Ultra Australia will continue to go ahead this weekend, kicking off today at Sydney’s Parramatta Park and tomorrow at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne – tickets still available here.
