Coronavirus fears and travel bans leave major clubs and events no other choice.
Correction: Miami's first confirmed case of Coronavirus was in Bay Harbour Islands, not Bal Harbour.
Any electronic music-loving out-of-towners still hoping to visit Miami next week may want to reconsider. The city's annual Miami Music Week has effectively been canceled. The 20-plus year annual city-wide event, which generates about $80 million in revenue for the city, is the latest social gathering snuffed out by coronavirus concern.
Nearly all of the city's most popular clubs have shuttered their doors while big-name lineups have been canceled or postponed. The string of announcements have come in the last 24 hours, about one week after Ultra Music Festival's flagship Miami event was “postponed” to what would have been its official dates next year.
