The planning for Ultra Music Festival started off with more heart break than magic last year. The festival succumb to the massive pressure from Miami citizens and was forced out of its long-term home of Bayfront Park after a city council vote.
The blow seemed incredibly damaging. But resilient as always, Ultra rose like a Phoenix from the ashes of the council ousting. It found a new home on Virginia Key. All seemed to be right in the world of Ultra Music Festival. But the new contract with its new home had a caveat.
Too Good To Be True?
Rapture Music Festival was planning on using the Marine Stadium on the same date as Ultra Music Festival. In the contract, Ultra was supposed to help the festival relocate in some capacity.
Out of seemingly nowhere, Rapture threw out a lawsuit against Ultra for not following through on their contractual obligations. Almost across the board, the lawsuit was deemed frivolous.
Today, a judge in Miami-Dade County agreed with the masses when he struck down the lawsuit deeming it unsubstantial. Rapture Music Festival has three days to resubmit or the case will be closed.
