As less than two months remain before Ultra Music Festival returns to Miami, Florida, the gathering's organizers are pulling out all the stops. First they disclosed more details of attendee transportation, and then they followed it up with the announcement of a brand new stage.
Ultra's relocation to Virginia Key in 2019 was met with protest by Key Biscayne residents, but they appear determined to minimize their impact on the surrounding community. Earlier in the month they revealed details of their shuttle bus system, and today they announced that attendees will also be able to board vessels departing from a ferry transit hub at Bayside Marketplace.
Shortly thereafter, Ultra's organizers shared a CG-animated teaser for their a stage set to debut at the 2019 edition of the festival. Being that it was shared by the RESISTANCE techno/house event brand's Twitter account, it stands to reason that the Arrival stage is intended to replace the Arcadia Spider moving forward.
Ultra Music Festival has taken place annually in Miami since 1999. It initially took place at Collins Park on Miami Beach, but it quickly outgrew the location and moved to Bayfront Parkin 2001. In September of this year, the city rejected the proposed contract for future editions of the festival to take place there.
