It is never enjoyable to write articles like these, but I feel obligated to do so. Sadly, we have to say that Alex Omes has passed away. There is no known cause that has been disclosed yet, but this is truly upsetting. In 1999, Alex Omes and his partner Russell Faibisch started Ultra Music Festival. They had no idea what it would be become today, but it is considered one of the best festivals in the world. In 2010, when Ultra started to become bigger than Winter Music Conference, Ultra pushed him out. After a lawsuit in 2012, he was able regain control and become owner of the festival again. According to his Facebook, he was also a promoter at Ciel Eau.
This is very tragic and upsetting when someone like this passes away. We wish good vibes and send our thoughts and feelings to his friends and family! Rest in peace, Alex Omes!
