- Ultra Music Festival Implements 18+ Age Restriction
The highly acclaimed EDM festival Ultra Music Festival, which occurs every year in the springtime in Miami, Florida, has major changes coming to its 17th edition in 2015. According to flyers handed out this weekend during Electric Zoo promoting the Miami event, next year’s Ultra festival will be restricted to 18+ for ages able to attend, which eliminates the festival’s longstanding “All ages” welcoming. The festival cites safety concerns for its attendees as the reason for the age restriction, saying, “The safety and security of our attendees, artists/performers, and personnel are out utmost priority and concern.”Ultra is not the first music festival to put age limits into action in more recent years, as events such as EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) have also made these changes. The age restriction serves as a reminder that it’s important to be responsible and well-informed on the dangers that coud be presented at festivals like Ultra, such as the availability of substances like MDMA (molly).The flier also that early bird tickets for Ultra 2015 will be on sale soon. Though the new age restriction promotes safety for its attendees, it will surely devastate the spirits of the “young ravers” who were seeking to attend this incredible festival come the spring of 2015.– Jeremy Lamstein[Photo via Your EDM]
