It comes as no surprise to most people. Although we had hoped for Ultra Music Festival Miami 2021 to proceed as planned, but, at last, we now have closure. The virus still not contained and UMF Miami, being one of the first and earlier major events of the year. Sadly it has been canceled and will not take place once again in 2021, marking two years without the festival. Next year, organizers hope to host the event from March 25-27 at Bayfront Park.
In January, a letter obtained by Billboard stated that organizers of Ultra Music Festival were preparing to cancel this year’s event. Likewise requesting that the City of Miami officials approve their permit request to stage the event in 2022.
Now, an official statement has been given by Ultra organizers. They confirm that this year’s event will be unable to go ahead due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the organizers also shared to Facebook “it is still not safe enough” for the festival to happen yet.
“Given the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic, in relation to mass gatherings and public health considerations, we’re deeply saddened to be forced to reschedule Ultra Music Festival to March 25, 26, and 27, 2022,” Ultra Statement
This feels like a repeat performance from 2020 all over again. An email was sent to ticket holders following the 2020 cancellation. Here they gave customers the option to roll tickets over to either the 2021 or 2022 event. Ticket holders were given 30 days to decide which event they wanted to attend. Most likely Ultra organizers will now try to roll over all tickets to the 2022 edition. However, the lack of a lineup or commitment from the city to issue a permit for 2022 could make that a challenge.
The cancellation of Ultra Miami 2021 follows other behemoth spring and summer festivals that have also looked to future dates. So far, we have seen A State Of Trance, Coachella, and Defqon.1 postpone their dates. Stay tuned for the latest news surrounding Ultra and more updates regarding other events and festivals that are canceled or postponed in 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic.
