Tickets for Miami’s Ultra Music Festival are on the rise.
Early bird tickets for the March 2014 electronica festival sold out in just four minutes when they were released online in May at $149.95 a pop. The Miami Herald reports advanced tickets that went on sale immediately afterward for $274.95 each sold out in 20 minutes.
That leaves anyone else wanting to attend the multi-day festival at Miami’s Bayfront Park will pay $399.95 per ticket – a $100 increase over 2013 prices. With service charges and shipping fees, the Herald says the price rises to $504.95. And VIP tickets are selling for $849 each.
Ultra fan Matthew Agramonte of Kendall says he’s been to five festivals, but won’t be going next year.
“Ultra is isolating its fan base that simply can’t afford outrageous prices. What was once a great experience is a rip-off and a great shame,” he told the newspaper.
In a statement, Ultra organizers said blamed rising ticket prices on city fees. They say that ticket prices had remained the same for two years. They said the increase was “unfortunately necessary” to ensure the “premium quality and evolution of Ultra’s groundbreaking stage productions and artist lineups.” Read here for more on the Pollstar release…
