Ultra Music Fesitval quickly announced (and sold out) early bird tickets. But so far, the fest has given no indication of what else is in store. No acts. No venue. Nothing.
However, a reliable source told Crossfade today that a venue announcement is coming very soon. In fact, the festival is "taking over downtown Miami on the waterfront in a whole new way, like no event has done before."
This sort of confirms what we already knew: Ultra will be returning to downtown, and it will be on the waterfront. But will it be at Bicentennial Park or Bayfront Park? Or perhaps an alternative? We're going to have to wait a few more days to find out.
Tickets are now on sale at ultramusicfestival.com for $299.95 plus fees for general admission and $599.95 plus fees for VIP (ages 21 and over only).
