Extremely Music Pageant could return to mainland Miami in 2020.
After a recreation of hardball that noticed Miami officers flip flop from treating Extremely Music Pageant like a thorn of their aspect to vying for its favor, the occasion appears to be like to have an opportunity at returning to its longtime location. The Miami Metropolis Fee has licensed the town supervisor to supply the gathering’s organizers a possibility to return to Bayfront Park in 2020.
On the day earlier than Extremely’s organizers had been supposed to fulfill with the fee to debate their return to Virginia Key in 2020, that they had announced that they were finalizing a different “South Florida location.” Homestead-Miami Speedway and Lummus Park in South Beach both emerged as possibilities before the Miami City Commission held a “Sunshine Meeting” in which officials expressed a desire to keep the event in the city.
Ultra Music Festival has taken place annually since 1999. The first two editions called Collins Park in Miami Beach home, but for most of the festival’s lifespan it graced Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami. After the 2018 edition, however, the Miami City Commission downvoted organizers’ proposed contract to return there and the festival was forced to relocate to Virginia Key.
The move to Virginia Key elicited ire from nearby residents and local promoters alike. Following a tumultuous 2019 edition, Ultra’s organizers had cited a “simply not good enough” festival experience among their main reasons for pursuing a venue outside of Miami
The item is set for vote on June 27th, 2019. The 2020 edition of Ultra Music Festival is slated to take place from March 27th-29th.
