Ultra Music Festival Will Pay A Minimum Of $2M In Rent Under Proposed Agreement

The city of Miami and Ultra Music Festival have a new draft agreement for the use of Bayfront Park which will see rent at least double.

The new agreement includes:

  • $2 million in minimum annual rent, with a percentage charge on ticket sales that could boost that number
  • Usage period of the park limited to 30 days
  • Decibel level limits during festival, and time limitations on sound and light checks
  • $1,000 per minute surcharge if the event extends past midnight
  • Restoration of park to original state, and coverage of extras like police and fire

The agreement is scheduled to be reviewed by Miami’s commission at a meeting on July 26.

I say no to this. The only good thing is the rent that the city will get. Music limitations, no. People know the area they live in, there’s no need for the government to intervene in this matter. Coverage of police and recovery makes sense. Alcohol banned? What is this, L.A.? There’s a reason why people love Miami and that is the freedom to do as you want in the area without inflicting harm on others of course. I can’t even drink a beer on a beach here in San Diego. Beaches here get barely packed even when it is hot. Do we really want to control everything and everyone? It looks Orwellian to me.

Blacks are the most religious in the U.S so when you liberals poke fun at Christians you’re acting making fun of us black people. But of course you don’t actually care about us.

Read more, argue less.
The manufacturing sector has improved FAR greater than than the service sector in the last Labor Bureau reports.
Foxconn, which used to build iPhones overseas is building a $10B plant in Wisconsin. A new steel plant is opening Miami-Dade County.
Etc. Etc.
The tax reform policy of this President has encouraged companies to repatriate 100’s of Billions on dollars. $400M from Apple alone.
All Americans should be proud of these trends and these accomplishments.
Happy Independence Day.

“Blacks are the most religious in the U.S so when you liberals poke fun at Christians you’re acting making fun of us black people.”

Really? You mean to say that when a black person hangs a picture of a white man on his wall and say “that’s my saviour Jesus Christ,” that black person is not poking and making fun of himself?

Alcohol is NOT banned.

I think they might have misread. It appears to me that alcohol is not banned as it states a cutoff time for alcohol sales and must be in paper/plastic cups. Heineken and Redbull are the only brands (sponsors) allowed in bottle/can form. And it appears to say 2/person at time of purchase, meaning (I believe) you can only buy 2 at a time, not 2 total for the whole day.

No, but a legacy gift to the community would be great. Contributing to fthe Flagler redevelopment, homeless services etc. it is not uncommon for events of this magnitude in other cities. The nfl is doing it for the nfl experience.
