Winter Music Conference Says It Was "Blindsided" By Ultra Music Festival's Actions

Winter Music Conference organizers have finally responded to all the commotion happening around Ultra Music Festival's decision to hold its event outside of the week of the conference. In a press release WMC says, "We were blindsided by Ultra's last minute announcement this morning."

Also, according to the press release it seems WMC organizers could

have legal recourse to take this battle to court. Of the announcement of

Ultra being at the end of the month, organizers say, "The notification

was served despite a signed October 15, 2009 contract between the two

entities which stated that the 2011 Ultra Music Festival would be

presented during the five-day period in February, March or April 2011

designated and promoted by WMC as the 'WMC week.'"

It's becoming obvious now that there is definitely a rift between the two, which probably goes back than further than just this week.

Stay tuned for further updates.
