It's likely Ultra could be postponed until 2021.

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez had said at an earlier press conference that Ultra should not go forward because of the coronavirus concerns.

It wasn't immediately clear how the postponement will affect people who bought tickets.

Among the acts scheduled to perform are David Guetta, The Chainsmokers, Afrojack, Cash Cash, Martin Garrix and Galantis.
