Miami Mayor talked to UMF organizers
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez and Commissioner Joe Carollo want the electronic dance music festival to be postponed. They talked to UMF organizers regarding this. It is to be noted that the festival attracted around 170,000 fans last year. This year, the organizers were expecting fans from more than 100 countries in the festival.
UMF organizers postponed the event
The organizers decided to postpone the festival to help public health officials that are working on to control the spread of coronavirus that has spread to more than 80 countries. The UMF organizers are working the final draft of the deal to make a formal announcement regarding postponement of the March festival.
UMF cancelled Abu Dhabi event
The organizers even cancelled the Abu Dhabi event that was to happen this week. But fans – EDM music stars David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Marshmello, The Chainsmokers – looked disappointed. Soon they started reacting on social media. There were tens and thousands of fans that have already paid for the event and now they have to set their plans aside.
One fan demanded that the organizers should give the option of refund or get ready for a lawsuit by the EDM community. But they are hopeful that the organizers would refund tickets to save their brand.
