Ultra has found a new home on Virginia Key after a handful of downtown Miami residents forced it out of Bayfront Park.
The music festival will be held in its new location March 29-31, 2019, and might remain there in future years as well. Miami commissioners approved the deal in a 4-1 vote, according to the Herald.
Events will take place in two locations, including the park in front of Marine Stadium and inside Historic Virginia Key Beach Park.
Ultra will pay $2 million for the coming year, and the deal can be revoked any time after the first year. The city will also work with Key Biscayne, where many residents oppose the festival over traffic and environmental concerns.
