Unruly Ultra Video Compiled In an Attempt to Get Rid of Festival in Miami


Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff compiled unruly video footage from this year's Ultra Music Festival in an attempt to rid Miami of the festival. Tonight the City of Miami Commission will vote on the fate of the festival armed with the footage.

This year's festival raised even more concern and backlash than the prior years in the wake of the trampling of security guard Erica Mack. Aside from that incident, the video contains footage of ravers jumping fences, jumping onto stages, brawling, resisting police arrest, and visible drug and alcohol abuse.

Sarnoff claims that aside from general welfare, he also speaks on behalf of the local business owners who have incurred significant costs from damage done by unruly attendees. On the other hand, Ultra provides the local economy with a huge boost each year. In 2012 the festival brought in $79 million dollars.

The contract signed between UMF organizers and Bayfront Park guarantees at least 4 more festivals at the site. Ultra has taken to Facebook vowing to return and posting the dates of next year's festival, along with a petition to sign to keep Ultra alive.

Check out a video of the unruly behavior and Commissioner's statements below:
