Ultra Music Festival Pays $400,000 to Man Beaten by Off-Duty Miami Cops in 2011

It has been an interesting few months for Ultra. In late March, the mega music festival once again drew nearly 200,000 people to Bayfront Park, making untold millions of dollars, and firmly establishing itself as America's premier EDM event.

But a concertgoer's death and a stampede that nearly killed a security guard have also led politicians to demand Ultra be kicked out of downtown Miami.

Now comes news that Ultra's insurance company paid $400,000 in January to a man who was beaten up by the festival's off-duty cops three years ago.
