According to The Miami Herald, the Ultra Music Festival will revert back to a one-weekend format in 2014. Following the lead of Coachella and Austin City Limits, the Miami-based electronic festival expanded to two weekends for its 2013 installment.

Ultra says that this year’s installment was its most successful yet, drawing more than 330,000 fans to Miami’s Bayfront Park. However, the festival faced push back from the city’s businesses and Miami Commission Marc Sarnoff introduced a resolution “disapproving” of a second weekend, citing traffic issues, noise, and because “about 70 to 80 percent of these kids are on some sort of mind-altering drug.”

Ultra 2014 is set to take place March 28th – 30th. In the meantime, check out our coverage from Ultra 2013 weekend one.
