UR1 Festival Postponed, Will Be Rescheduled UPDATED

According to UR1 Festival organizers, the fest has been postponed, not canceled. The reason given for the rescheduling: a weather forecast that predicts strong winds the weekend of December 8 and 9.

Once the new dates are announced, ticket holders can decide whether to ask for a refund or use the ticket. (The UR1 spokesperson tells Crossfade that new dates could be announced as early as a week and a half from today.)

There is also another option which is to keep your ticket and use it during the week of Art Basel Miami Beach. UR1 says it will be working with local venues to put on music shows around town. The ticket will act like a festival pass, granting access to each show.

All that information will soon be available at ur1festival.com.

Here is the full statement from UR1's organizers:

    UR1 Festival Postponement Announcement

    It is with deep regret that we announce the postponement of the first annual UR1 Music & Art Festival due to circumstances beyond our control, including:

    - Foreseeable inclement weather conditions in the Miami-Dade and South Florida


    - Continued effects of the recent Hurricane Sandy.

    In consideration of these and other factors including the safety and wellbeing of our fans and performing artists we have come to this tough decision. Understandably this has had an ancillary effect on ticket sales and business logistics. It has always been our mission to produce events of the utmost quality and safety.

    The new dates for the UR1 Music & Art Festival will be announced shortly. New dates will be chosen when weather conditions satisfy the safety of our fans, artists and staff. Once the dates are released you may chose to retain your ticket, as we will accept it at the festival. Alternatively should you choose to be refunded, information and instructions on how to do so can be found at www.ur1festival.com/tickets. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

    We would also like to inform you that we are making every effort to showcase

    some of the talent that was scheduled to perform and exhibit at the festival in various locations around Miami. For those of you who would like to join us and the talent that will continue on to be showcased pending forthcoming dates to be announced, UR1 Ticket holders will have the opportunity to use their festival ticket at events around Miami during Basel week. A list of events accepting UR1 Tickets & Vouchers will soon be listed at www.ur1festival.com


    The UR1 Music & Art Festival Family

    Earlier Post: Ugh. This sucks to even have to write, but rumors are swirling that the UR1 Festival has been canceled. We sent a message to a UR1 spokesperson but are still awaiting confirmation. Sources say a statement will be released later today.

    What happened? Not entirely sure. But an ambitious festival the size of UR1 is an expensive endeavor. The cost of artists, production, and security can easily go into the millions.

    There are also already established events -- Art Basel Miami Beach and its satellite events -- happening as well. The question we always had in our heads: Would art patrons also be interested in attending a music festival?

    It's sure not for lack of trying. Go Big Productions launched a massive campaign, which included running ads both in local papers (like New Times) and national outlets. We really hope organizers don't give up. Our city could really use deserves another major music festival.

    Our sources tell us booking agents have already contacted area venues to see if they can pick up displaced acts. Some have already found new places to perform and we'll hear about it soon enough.

    We'll continue to keep you updated as this story develops.
