After months of patiently waiting, the roller coaster ride of Ultra Music Festival making its return to Bayfront Park has finally come to a close.


Since the conclusion of their most recent edition on Historic Virginia Key, it seems as if a month hasn’t gone by with news surrounding Ultra Music Festival. After being booted from their longstanding home at Bayfront Park, fighting a battle to relocate to Historic Virginia Key, losing that venue and searching for other options, fans of the brand can now rest easy.

Today, after a 3 to 2 vote from the Miami City Commission, Ultra Music Festival will officially be returning to their home at Bayfront Park for the 2020 edition of the festival. During the discussions, the dispute between the City of Miami and Ultra was raised over the amount of money that was still due to be paid for fire and police services, and the deal itself also continued to receive serious pushback from Commissioner Carollo.

The offer from the city to Ultra comes with some changes to the festival, though, as the decibel limit for sound will now be capped at a maximum of 102. Also, the Oasis stage and possibly the second RESISTANCE stage will be casualties in the deal as well due to the alterations to the deal with the city.

Stay tuned for more details about Ultra Music Festival 2020 and their return to Bayfront Park as we continue to progress deeper into the year. Will you be heading to the festival in 2020? Let us know and share your favorite moments from the festival in the comments below!
