Ultra Music Festival organizers have officially announced its cancellation and are immediately working with City of Miami officials to move their approved permit to next year’s event.

This marks the second year in a row that Ultra has been cancelled due to the pandemic. Organizers are hoping the festival will take place next year on March 25-27 at the Bayfront Amphitheater. Ultra Music Festival’s attorney, Sandy York has released a statement, “We anticipate that the City will again invoke the Force Majeure clause. We respectfully request the rescheduled dates to be March 25, 26, and 27, 2022,” and for Ultra’s payment obligations to Miami “be deemed modified to correspond with the rescheduled dates.”

After news of its cancellation in 2020, a 2021 lineup was never announced and a number of artists and their managers spoke to Billboard saying they have not heard about the festival, subsequently assuming that the 2021 festival would not go as planned.

The 2020 cancellation resulted in a class-action lawsuit on behalf of Ultra ticket holders, when Ultra announced that instead of a refund, the tickets would roll over to 2021. It is possible for Ultra organizers to try and roll over the tickets to 2022, even though nothing has been confirmed as of the present.

Despite the cancellations in Miami, international Ultra shows such as Ultra Taiwan were still able to move forward, including a lineup featuring Alesso, Slander and Kayzo.

In case you missed it, Glastonbury Festival also cancelled due to covid pandemic.
