The annual Ultra Music Festival could be making a return to the downtown Miami site it spent nearly two decades at – just one year after being kicked out over concerns from citizens living in the area.
The Miami city commission is expected to discuss and possibly vote on a proposal from Commissioner Keon Hardemon that would return the three day festival to Bayfront Park in March 2020.
Wildly popular among fans of electronic music that flocked to the area from 2001 to 2018, event organizers were forced to find a new location after the city ended its contract over noise complaints from residents in the area.
The event was moved to Virginia Key and took place this past March before event officials announced it would not be returning to the sites near Miami Marine Stadium.
Several cities including Homestead, Hialeah and Miami Beach – where the first two events were held before the move to Bayfront Park – expressed interest in moving the event to their cities but later declined to move forward with plans to host the crowds of over 160,000 expected to attend.
The 2020 festival is tentatively scheduled to take place from March 27th to the 29th.
