NBC 6 South Florida : Ultra Music Festival Announces Payment Plan for 2014

NBC 6 South Florida : Ultra Music Festival Announces Payment Plan for 2014 | industry hot topic | Scoop.it

With ticket prices on the rise, the popular “Ultra Music Festival” announced Tuesday that a payment plan is now available for 2014. The plan allows festival-goers to purchase a general admission ticket in portions of $98.95 over five months, but only a limited amount of tickets are available. This is the first time that the electronic dance music festival has offered this payment option. Ticket buyers also have the choice of paying the ticket in full.

Eric Gray's insight:

I thought this was an interesting new innovation for making payment for expensive tickets. A good way to let more people afford the tickets to an amazing show while tickets are expensive this payment plan should make it easier for more people to afford it and offers a larger quantity of tickets to be sold increasing profit margins

This year Ultra music festival is allowing payment methods for tickets. 5 payments of 98.95 over the course of 5 months. Ticket prices have gone up from the previous year for more production equipment. Festival-goers still have the choice of buying a ticket in full.

Josh Loomis's curator insight, December 4, 2013 12:11 PM

Of course, Ultra comes with a rather steep price to pay for the total enjoyment of the three day weekend. Sure they get amazing numbers of attendance, but there are teams devoted to complaints and devising new ways to attract more people and make the experience as great as it should be. Payment options have been implimented this year for the first time.

City of Miami to Vote on Resolution "Disapproving" of Second Weekend of Ultra Music Festival

City of Miami to Vote on Resolution "Disapproving" of Second Weekend of Ultra Music Festival | industry hot topic | Scoop.it

It can't be Ultra Music Festival without a little bit of drama. This time it comes from Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff who has introduced a new resolution "disapproving" of the second weekend of Ultra Music Festival.

The resolution, which the commission will consider on Thursday, claims the "event will be disruptive to the local business community and area residents due to noise, nuisance behavior of festival goers, and grid lock traffic."

That's a different tune than Ultra organizers claimed a few months ago, when they stated the festival generated a $79 million economic impact for the county...

Ultra is approaching faster than people think. With the final weekend in March set on so many calendars as the best days of the year, there are plenty of Miami residents that feel just the opposite.

 

Pros: Any music festival typically brings in a solid chunk of money to its respective town or city. But the magnitude of Ultra is on a different level. Miami is completely transformed for the week from what we know it to a Utopian society of incredible bass and bright lights. People find themselves at festivals like this, find each other, find the music. It really is a journey of discovery and it brings such joy and passion to people all around the world to share with complete strangers.

 

Cons: But then again something like Ultra is almost to go to be true. There has to be something wrong with it...and of course that problem manifests within the city and natives of Miami that have to deal with wild and crazy seemingly endless waves of people all weekend. Restaurants, hotels, and hospitals become the most heavily populated areas with emphasis on the latter.

Cypress Billie's curator insight, December 4, 2013 3:38 PM

Authorities are trying to ban the second weekend of Ultra in Miami. The festival does bring in alot of money to the city due to the people the festival attracts, but it also creates many disturbances.
