Ultra Music Festival may be postponed because of coronavirus

The festival runs during the weekend of March 20 at Miami's Bayfront Park.

MIAMI — The Ultra Music Festival might not go on as planned later this month because of the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

The Miami Herald reports the popular electronic music event will be postponed for a year, meaning it would be canceled for 2020. 

However, there has yet to be a public announcement on the festival's status.

Per the Herald, city leaders said Wednesday morning they want to suspend Ultra and work out a plan to postpone the event. A resolution between the two sides reportedly has been made, but there will not be an official announcement until Friday morning.

WTVJ-TV, citing a source with the city of Miami, also reports Ultra will be "postponed indefinitely."
