The music festival, Ultra music festival has officially canceled this year(2021) event, according to a letter obtained by Billboard.
This will mark the second year in a row Ultra has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Next year, organizers hope to host the event on March 25-27 at Bayfront Amphitheater.
On 21st Jan 2021, the letter from Ultra attorney Sandy York to Miami city manager Arthur Noriega says that conditions created by the spread of COVID-19 that led city officials to cancel the Ultra Music Festival Cancel in 2020 are still a threat to festival-goers in 2021.
“We anticipate that the City will again invoke the Force Majeure clause” in the license agreement to stage Ultra at Bayfront Park, York wrote. Because the license requires the festival to take place over a single weekend in March, “we respectfully request the rescheduled dates to be March 25, 26, and 27, 2022.”
York’s letter requests that the approval be made in writing and that Ultra’s payment obligations to the city “be deemed modified to correspond with the rescheduled dates.”
