If you’ve been following Ultra Music Festival for the past few years you must have heard of last year’s debacle concerning the insane rise in ticket prices that they subjected their fans and attendees to. If you haven’t well long story short, Ultra Music Festival decided increase the rates for General Admission tickets from $299 to $399, but the worst part came after the service fees kicked in, raising the $399 to a whooping $500, for a single ticket. People got mad, some tried to even boycott Ultra Music Festival but the event still went on, selling out by Saturday. Now Ultra Music Festival 2015 is getting slightly closer and with that comes the awaited announcement about ticket prices.
Here is the announcement below:
Ultra Music Festival recently opened ticket registration via its website for the 2015 edition of its flagship event in Miami, Florida. Those who register will receive exclusive access to Tier 1 and Tier 2 ticket pricings. Registration closes at midnight EST on September 29 at ultramusicfestival.com/tickets.
The exclusive registration ticket prices will only be available to those who pre-registered and are priced at $299.95 (Tier 1) and $379.95 (Tier 2). These prices are all-inclusive of taxes and fees though a nominal shipping surcharge will be added depending upon shipment location.
Enrollment for pre-registration has been extremely high. Reduced priced tickets will sell out fast.
For the first time in its history, and as a thank you to its loyal legion of fans, Ultra Music Festival is reducing the price of General Admission tickets. These tickets will be available to the general public, with no registration required.
General Admission tickets for the seventeenth edition of Ultra Music Festival: Miami go on sale at 1PM EST September 30 for $449.95, nearly $50 less than the 2014 event. VIP tickets are priced at $1,149.95. These prices include taxes and fees though a nominal shipping surcharge will be added. A payment plan for general admission tickets will also be available.
So there you have it, congratulations, all the boycotting and complaining brought down tickets by $50, although do note the shipping surcharge. Will that be enough for you to go back this year? Let us know in the comments down below your thoughts on the whole matter.
