MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – The Miami Beach City Commission said no to Ultra on Wednesday.

Ultra wanted to return to Lummus Park in 2020.

The first Ultra was held in Bicentennial Park, now known as Museum Park, in 1999.

In a memo to city leaders, Commissioner Ricky Arriola said the move would make Spring Break safer, better and more profitable for local businesses in Miami Beach.

“Inviting an established, well-organized event like Ultra for Spring Break 2020 will put heads in beds and serve as the counter-programming mechanism against the unorganized chaos that was Spring Break 2019 in Miami Beach,” said Arriola in the memo.

It was not to be.

Ultra ended its contract with the City of Miami after this year’s festival.
