With a huge increase in the number of buses available and staff of Ultra that knew what to do, leaving Virginia Key wasn’t so bad.
Circulation on the Virginia Key bridge is now changed in favour of shuttle buses. The insane amount of law enforcement permitted an almost continuous coming and going of buses. For instance, we left the festival at around 1:30 am and we queued up around 15 minutes after. In around 35 minutes we were on a shuttle bus heading to downtown.
Now, moving more than 60.000 people is not the easiest and fastest thing in the world. Luckily, to help people int his way, the City of Miami and Ultra have decided to let the people enjoy the festival for another hour. On the UMF radio stage, Afrojack has played a special set from 2 am for the people who wanted to stay longer.
Even if a situation like the one happened on the 1st day shouldn’t happen at a festival like Ultra, they’ve redeemed themselves fixing and improving what hadn’t work.
