Ultra Music Festival Will Return To Downtown Miami In 2020 After Commissioners Vote In Favor

Miami commissioners vote 3-2 today to bring Ultra Music Festival back to Bayfront Park in downtown Miami next year.

According to the SFBJ, the terms of the new deal are:

  • The contract is year-to year and the city can terminate it at any time
  • $2 million minimum fee to city plus police and fire reimbursement, along with annual increases and ticket percentages
  • 10 PM curfew on Sunday
  • Noise level reduction from 110 decibels to 102, along with limits on light checks
  • Main stage reoriented away from neighboring condos whose residents complained about sound
  • Traffic management plan required

Ken Russell and Joe Carollo were the two commissioners who voted against the deal.
