We wanted to let you all know, we had one of the worst experiences of
our 10 year musical career on Saturday night, we were physically
violated and dragged off stage by security, Ortiz Padillo Promoters and
commercial sponsors at Oxigena Festival, near Cordova, in Southern
Spain. We were denied our right to perform at the festival as
contractedand our fees were not honoured. It was clear that the public attendance
of the festival was extremely low and the promoters wouldnÂ´t allow us
toplay for this reason, so they could claim insurance on the premise, of
acancelled headlining act. The promoters and Sponsors falsely claimed
that Â³the band is late” as we entered the stage at 1.25am, 5 minutes
prior to the planned stage time of 1.30am as contracted.
Photo documentation has been taken away from us, our camera was smashed
and memory card stolen.
We want to expose these criminal acts and the organisations responsible
for abusing and robing artists through their business practices and the
unethical networks of festivals and concert promoters. ItÂ´s clearly a
case of abuse against women, destruction of personal property, breach
of contract and assault.
WeÂ´re pretty freaked out & scared by what we experienced. It would be
really good to have your support in any way, the organizers were trying
to make quick cash from the festival. Look out for scammers that are
abusing musicians and swindling young people looking to have a fun
KEEP MUSIC ABOUT ART & CULTURE & A WILD FUN TIME TO BE TOGETHER & NOT A
MEANS FOR HORRIBLE MEN TO MAKE PILES MONEY.
