SOUNDWAVE FESTIVAL (A.J. MADDAH): FILES FOR BANKRUPTCY
A.J. MADDAH, head promoter for SOUNDWAVE (METAL/HARD ROCK FESTIVAL) AUSTRALIA has apparently filed for bankruptcy in Australian Federal Court (12/4/2015) just 7 weeks before the scheduled and now cancelled 2016 SOUNDWAVE.
Last week, promoters for SOUNDWAVE 2016, set to take place 1/23th. 24th and 26th, 2016 BRISBANE (23rd), SYDNEY (24th), MELBOURNE (26th), AUSTRALIA have sent this statement as the festival is CANCELLED. The bands advance/deposit for SOUNDWAVE 2016 were NOT secured.
SOUNDWAVE 2016 ticket buyers complained about ticket refunds. SOUNDWAVE 2016 promoter A.J. MADDAH suggested fans whom had already bought SOUNDWAVE 2016 tickets file for a claim (refund) with their financial institution. Ticket agency EVENTOPIA stated MADDAH was responsible for ticket refunds as MADDAH has put the onus on the ticket agency.
