MIAMI – The three-day Ultra Music Festival will likely be canceled again this year, and organizers are planning ahead for UMF 2022 at Bayfront Park in Miami, Billboard reported on Friday.

Organizers of the annual electronic music dance festival didn’t host the show last year, as the deadly coronavirus was starting to spread in Miami-Dade County during the beginning of the pandemic.

UMF organizers committed to making sure the tickets that thousands of people from around the world purchased for Miami’s UMF 2020 were valid for a future event, but they have yet to release details.

The festival was last held in 2019 at Miami’s Virginia Key and attendees complained about logistical issues with transportation. For more information about the status of UMF in Miami, visit the organizer’s website to sign up for updates.
