EDM Culture Merrymaking Can't Be Stopped—Ultra Music Festival Weekend Two Is A Go

Given that weekend number two is when we are going to be in Miami and planned on going to Ultra, gotta admit we were a little bummed at the thought of it not happening. At the end of the day, tho, the likelihood of the city putting a wet blanket over the planned merrymaking was pretty slim. If for no other reason than the fact that state coffers aren't exactly bulging at the seams and no one is rolling around in money all Richie Rich style.

Of course Miami Commissioners gave the approval for folks to get their back-to-back weekend rave on. Of course there were a few caveats in the new deal. Of course those caveats had to do with more money (to the tune of $500,000) for the city. Jose Duran of the Miami New Times reported last night on everything and it's a pretty interesting read. Best quote in the article was from Commissioner Marc Sarnoff about drug use:

We all know drug usage is high at Ultra. And it might be OK for a young man to get high, or whatever you want to call it, on Friday, Saturday, Sunday. But you are going to have some people try to do Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday....
