Could the 2014 Ultra Music Festival Take Place Over Two Weekends?

umf-2014-announcement

Less than an hour after the end of the 2013 Ultra Music Festival, we’d already been given the dates for the 2014 edition of the Ultra Music Festival. When we found out the low number of arrests from this year’s UMF, our immediate question was “will Miami now consider a second weekend?” And while we don’t have confirmation on this, Ultra did speak with Billboard.biz about the possibility:

“The 16th Annual Ultra Music Festival will take place March 28, 29 & 30, 2014,” Russell Faibisch and Adam Russakoff said in a statement. “Dates for the additional weekend are pending the approval of the City of Miami Commission and will be released as soon as they are available.”

One key, we’d imagine, is the amount of money Ultra brought in. If one weekend can rake in almost $80 million, we’re wondering what these two weekends did. We’ll see if the city of Miami will stick to its guns or not.
