Ultra Music Festival 2020 Officially Cancelled

For the first time since it’s 1999 inception, Ultra Music Festival has cancelled its flagship Miami festival.

After meeting with Miami city officials earlier today amid the coronavirus outbreak, the festival has made the decision to cancel its 2020 flagship event.

Whilst it has been stated it will be postponed, it will most likely ultimately be cancelled entirely – returning in 2021.


Before the meeting, Mayor Francis Suarez and Commissioner Joe Carollo told reporters they wanted to postpone the event due to concerns over the spread of novel coronavirus, or COVID-19.

City officials have yet to announce details of the change because attorneys are ironing out the legal issues tied to the decision, including the length of the delay, sources said.

According to the Miami Herald, “City officials have yet to announce details of the change because attorneys are ironing out the legal issues tied to the decision, including the length of the delay, sources said.


With no statements from official parties as of yet, we are in the dark about how Miami and Ultra will handle the cancellation. Many questions such as what Miami Music Week will be doing will be asked.

After Abu Dhabi Ultra also being cancelled, this is a major blow for the Ultra brand. Not all is negative however – Ultra Australia is in full swing and not being cancelled – you can pick up tickets here for potentially the only Ultra taking place for the foreseeable future.
