Ultra Music Festival has reportedly reached an agreement with a residential association in Miami after a feud lasting several years.
Recently reported in the Miami Herald, the ongoing disagreement between the Downtown Neighbours Alliance (DNA) and Ultra Music Festival has now come to a positive end.
In a complete u-turn, DNA President James Torres announced that the group will now no longer call for the ban of Ultra from its Bayfront Park location, where the event lands for three days during Miami Music Week each March. Torres, alongside Ultra spokesperson Ray Martinez, declined to discuss details of the agreement with the Herald.
The DNA filed a lawsuit in January 2020, in which it stated: “between 2012 and 2018, the City allowed Ultra to conduct music festivals in Bayfront Park, and blast catastrophic volumes of noise into Plaintiffs’ and other Downtown Miami residents’ homes depriving them of the quiet enjoyment of their homes, and also depriving Plaintiffs and other Downtown residents access to Bayfront Park for several months each year.”
This new development brings some well-needed enlightenment to the Ultra brand, which recently announced they, unfortunately, had to cancel their 2021 edition.
In April, Event Entertainment Group — the umbrella company behind Miami’s Ultra Music Festival — had been sued in a new, eight-count class-action suit.
According to a recent report from the Miami Herald, the latest suit, filed by Corwin Law in Boca Raton, is seeking damages exceeding $15,000 for several clients who purchased tickets to the 2020 Ultra Music Festival
