Ultra Miami 2019 saw a lot of changes and challenges. Now, it’s time to assess for 2020. The City of Miami is scheduled to meet tomorrow and one thing on the agenda is the return (or not) of the signature music festival next year.
It’s obvious that Ultra is fighting for its new home at Virginia Key Beach Park and Miami Marine Stadium. Two important operational factors — transportation and noise mitigation — are the main topics of discussion, per the preliminary recap. If Ultra can demonstrate improvement in these areas, there’s a much better chance for the festival to stay put for next year and years to come.
The report is rather straightforward: “The City is confident that, when the event returns to Virginia Key next year, additional operational enhancements and resources can be implemented to further improve transportation and noise mitigation.”
Over the weekend, Ultra Miami 2019 was hit with 36 noise compliance and 13 disturbance calls.
Meanwhile, a total of 37 people were arrested. 281 EMT calls were responded to onsite.
More on all this following the city council meeting tomorrow.
