Final day of 2019 Ultra Music Festival, Virginia Key, Miami, on Sunday, March 31.

Ultra Music Festival has a signed agreement — finally — from the city of Miami to return to Bayfront Park in March.

Festival organizers and city administrators signed the revocable license agreement Jan. 16, only two months before the three-day event is scheduled to open March 20. The deal was inked the day after the Miami Herald published an article about the lack of an agreement and two days after a group of downtown residents sued the city to invalidate the deal that allows the electronic dance music event to use the downtown waterfront.

Reports that a contract had been signed first surfaced in music blogs Wednesday. The agreement, obtained by the Herald through a public records request, includes many of the terms discussed when three of five city commissioners voted in July 2019 to approve Ultra’s return.
