Sign the official petition to keep Ultra Music Festival in Miami
The controversy is nothing new. In fact, this isn’t the first time that Ultra Music Festival has been threatened. Last year’s second weekend of the 15th anniversary festival had been in jeopardy, but ultimately survived. Following the conclusion of Ultra 2014, which had the hospitalization of a security guard making headlines, Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado is looking to put an end to its Bayfront Park occupancy, claiming “it’s time to say goodbye.”
The rest of his statement, however, came with the more realistic threat: “We are bringing a resolution to the City Commission. If approved, the city will deny the permits for next year. We’d rather take quality of life instead of money.”
Luckily, for Ultra attendees (or for anyone in favor of its return), an official petition has been made available for signing. The petition requires 50,000 signatures, a number that sounds a lot like the attendance of its Main Stage and a fraction of its general attendance.
