Ultra Music Festival Comments on Stage Accident, Worker Injuries: "Continuing Preparations to Open Today"
Yes, Ultra Music Festival 2013 will still start tonight.
Even though approximately 16 hours ago "a section of an LED screen fell" from the Ultra main stage "and injured three workers," the EDM fest fully intends to stick with its two-weekend, six-day plan.
According to Crossfade's communications with Ultra reps as well as an updated statement just released to media, UMF organizers have been at the festival site all morning with "Fire Department, OSHA and other regulatory authorities... ensuring safety for its festival-goers."
