We regret that the mayor of Lommel called off Vestiville just before the opening of the festival. This happened despite earlier statements in the media of the same mayor that it would continue and just after A$AP Rocky tweeted not to come to the festival.
CM tickets were initially hired as a supplier to offer visitors the opportunity to buy a ticket, but a limited number of tickets were sold. At the request of the organization of Vestiville, this sale was transferred to Eventbrite on February 12th.
Agreements were made with Vestiville's lawyer, who indicated that there were no indications that the festival would not take place and that the organisation guaranteed the reimbursement, that the refund of ticket fees would be made via the new ticket provider.
The proceeds of the ticket sales made by CM Tickets were transferred to the organisation, which mainly used the money to pay for the artists, who were unable to perform in the end.
At this moment we don't expect that there will be any money available at the organizers to pay back the ticket buyers. If there is any news about this, CM Tickets will inform the buyers by e-mail. We also advise ticket buyers to contact the curator as soon as the curator is known.
If you have a travel- and/or cancellation insurance, we advise you to contact your insurer. Depending on the coverage of your insurance, you may be able to claim your expenses.
