So Bucharest is cancelled now??? Why do you announce shows that won’t happen?? Why is there no notification on this site. I got a ticket and a flight.July 11, 2016 at 7:48 pm #2413ArmadilloModerator
I’m not sure either Patrick. Sadly, these things do occur on occasion.
It is not always the band’s decision–there are lots of reasons why shows get cancelled and/or bands get removed off a show. I have even seen bands show up for a festival, only to be told–you’ve been cancelled, you can’t play.
Sometimes it’s the festival issues…once it was a local govt issue…sometimes visa issues…sometimes other business or legal matters.
This happened to me a few times as well– I think it was two years ago, I ended up with a ticket to Amsterdam for a show that didn’t happen. SMF Cyndi had one for Spain once and they cancelled TS from the bill. Two years ago I had a ticket/flight to Mexico City and the festival fell apart the day of my flight–I was literally on my way to the airport when I found out. In that case, I spoke to a supervisor at the airline, explained to them what happened, and they gave me a credit. Not a refund, but at least I could apply a portion of the ticket it to another flight. I hope you can sell your festival ticket and maybe get a partial credit from the airline.July 12, 2016 at 3:54 am #2414PatrickS77Participant
So it is definitely cancelled? Not uncertain, but cancelled?? At least an anouncement on this site would have been nice, instead of just secretly removing the date. I guess, like Janet, I should have known better. Muse on the first day, Iron Maiden on the second day and a tacked on Twisted Sister, months after the other 2 have been announced, a month before it was going to happen, in a big open air space in the middle of the city, with ticketholders for the first two shows being able to go for free. Damn these f-ing festival organizers, who really don’t give a shit about anyone… „If it doesn’t sell, we just cancel and do not even tell the people that it’s cancelled.“. I have not gotten any notification from the place where I bought the ticket. They just have removed the date. Since I bought a Twisted Sister ticket, they should notify and refund me. As for the flight, it is a low cost… they don’t give a shit either, it’s not really their problem anyway. I could have gotten a refundable flight, which would have cost twice as much.July 12, 2016 at 7:47 am #2415KaterinaParticipant
You are not the only one Patrick. I got two flight tickets for Romania and I will not get a refund… But as Armadillo wrote many times shows get canceled and it’s not always the band’s decision. At least try to get a refund for your festival ticket from the place you bought it
