Judge Will Hear Rapture Organizers’ Case Against Ultra Music Festival

Rapture is back following the first dismissal of their complaint.

Rapture Music Festival was in a legal battle surrounding Ultra Music Festival’s transfer to Virginia Key. Even though Rapture’s first complaint was dismissed out by a judge earlier this month, the team has amended it before their February 13th deadline. In early March, a judge will review their case.

In an exclusive announcement delivered to EDM.com, Rapture’s attorney, Paul Silverberg, wrote: 

“We accepted the Judge’s comments and put more details on the malicious actions against Rapture into the Amended Complaint. We will now proceed full speed against Ultra, EEG, the City of Miami and Virginia Key Beach Trust for the wrongful actions they have taken. The Court has set a preliminary hearing in March on this matter… A loss for Rapture is just another step toward “them” limiting your choices and your experiences.”

In the amended complaint, Rapture has left their stance clearer. They allege Ultra Music Festival is in breach of Antitrust law. Rapture considers Ultra and the town of Miami conspired to kick out of Virginia Key, citing their ownership of a contract which would let them continue hosting the event through 2020. This contract’s fortitude remains under consideration.

Stay tuned for updates surrounding the scheduled hearing Rapture’s case against Ultra.
