An accident at the 15th annual Ultra Music Festival, a dance/electronic music festival held in downtown Miami, has injured three, including two workers who were seriously hurt. A section of LED screen about seven feet tall, located 30 feet above the stage, fell on the workers. A standby unit of firefighters was onsite, and responded to the incident.
Officials were investigating the accident scene as well as additional stage rigs at the festival to prevent further problems.
The Ultra Music Festival is an annual event spanning two weekends, coinciding with the Winter Music Conference also based in Miami. Deadmau5, Paul Van Dik, Swedish House Mafia, Tiesta, Armin Van Buren, Avicii, Fatboy Slim, Thievery Corporation, and Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dogg) are among the many artists slated to appear.
