    Isn't Memorial Day in May? They're having 2 Ultras? I'm confused.

    Looks like the city is trying to stop Ultra from being a two weekend event.

    I mean, the whole week is a s**t show anyway. One more weekend is not going to make that much more of a deal. I'm sure it's cos of closing the streets etc.

    yea the summon or whatever you want to call it cited noise, loss of revenue to local business and street congestion as a reason why it should only be one weekend instead of two.

    Im still excited about going this year. If i lived in Miami i would definitely rather just do WMC events through out the week but there is no way i can get the whole week off or really afford that. So just one weekend works better for me, even if it will be crawling with underage kids drugged out of their minds.

    Plus i actually havent set foot in a club since march of last year so it will really be one year since i've done anything more than go to a bar. Going through withdraws :p

    Did they sell fewer tickets because it was spread out over two weekends? If that was the motivation, I'm all for it. Ultra flat out sucks now because of the crowds. So if they limited sales and had more dates, kuudos. Makes for a better event.

    If it's just going to be two weekends of unpleasant traffic and crowds, shutting down a significant part of the city and inconveniences residents, I say keep it to one.

    I have been, plus I went to the Gatecrasher festival they did a few years back, Summer Sound System or something. Anyways, Ultra is good, but there is no age restriction so there are a lot of high school kids. I had a blast at Ultra, but I won't do three days.

    Miami Music Week is another name for WMC practically. It's the week long build up of parties before Ultra. Although I think last year WMC was another week?....?

    Basically, everyone here running these events are greedy money hungry pigs, so it gets very confusing cos they keep moving names and dates around. Book the Dj at the events you want to see is what I recommend.

    you should check out the UKs Global Gathering Festival too. A weekend of electronic debauchery

    Why do I think I went to that...? Is that Leeds? There are a few years in England that are a bit blurry still.
