This marks the second year in a row that Ultra has been cancelled due to COVID-19. Organizers are hoping the festival, which was originally scheduled to take place on March 26-28 can take place next year on March 25-27, 2022 at Bayfront Park Amphitheater.  These dates still have yet to be confirmed by the festival.

“Given the current status of the pandemic in relation to mass gatherings and the public health considerations of our local community, we are working cooperatively with our city partners and plan to release an official festival update soon.”

“We anticipate that the City will again invoke the Force Majeure clause. The conditions created by the spread of COVID-19 that led city officials to cancel the festival in 2020 are still a threat to festival-goers in 2021. We respectfully request the rescheduled dates to be March 25, 26, and 27, 2022.”
