Following rumors of cancellation, the team behind Miami music festival UR1 has announced it will be postponed due to foreseeable inclement weather.
With a lineup that included everyone from Kanye West to Sven Väth, as well as individual stages curated by Cocoon, Circo Loco, and Space, UR1 seemed poised to become a major player, with the sprawling lineup capitalizing on the influx of visitors to Miami over Art Basel weekend. The official reasons given for the postponement are "foreseeable inclement weather conditions in the Miami-Dade and South Florida region," as well as continued effects of Hurricane Sandy. Could poor ticket sales have also had an effect on the decision to postpone?
UR1 has promised to honor all tickets previously purchased for the new dates, which will be "announced shortly."
