Ultra is safe ... For now.
During yesterday's Miami City Commission meeting, Mayor Tomás Regalado and Commissioner Marc Sarnoff backed off on their most recent blitz to ban the EDM Festival from Miami.
At about 12:45 p.m., the mayor and commissioner announced a surprise withdrawal of their resolution "prohibiting the Bayfront Park Management Trust from holding the Ultra Music Festival in the future." And in rescheduling the Ultra issue, they downgraded the debate from a vote to a mere discussion item on the April 24 agenda.
In a statement released this morning, Ultra Music Festival declares a "short-term victory" while thanks its "patrons and partners" for their "infinite support."
