Miami Police Had Their Hands Full During Ultra’s First Weekend

Miami police are reporting that a number of different crimes and incidents went on during the Ultra Music Festival this past weekend.

One of the biggest problems was gate-crashing; the high costs of these (scarce) tickets causes some to scale fences instead of going home and streaming the show via SiriusXM, DIFM, or your good ol’ DAD. Some took a different route, stealing the tickets right out of UMF attendees’ hands.

There were arrests made, and Miami Fire Rescue is said to have handled “about 50 calls,” with 12 people going to the hospital (many with injured ankles, oddly enough).

These things are bound to happen, but surprisingly, we’ve not heard much about injuries, ODs, or other incidents… yet.
