With its 17th year on the horizon, Ultra Music Festival is currently preparing the release of early bird tickets. However, this next year will usher in a new change to one of the event's longstanding policies. While past years allowed people of all ages to attend, next year's festival will implement an 18+ restriction. While Ultra has yet to officially announce the new policy, new fliers distributed this weekend during Electric Zoo reveal the age limit along with a disclaimer stating the following:
"The safety and security of our attendees, artists/performers, and personnel are out utmost priority and concern."
Many EDM festivals have enacted age restrictions in the past few years, such as Insomniac Events' EDC and Wonderland events. The flier also promises that tickets for Ultra 2015 will be on sale soon.
