In February when you still were not interested by Leonard Cohen, here we discuss the convenience of this site. Someone was considering inadequate to go with kids, for example. I do not think to debate on Benicàssim or on your "lovely unspoilt beach and surrounding area". It is not my intention to despise it. You seem to me a little offended by this.
Just I continue affirming that it is not a suitable site for Leonard Cohen. I believe that it is easy to understand that every artist and every public have his / their spaces.
How you well say I do not take a real interest for your festival. But you will not limit me in giving my opinion in this thread, not in any other place.
You have made me laugh when qualify my post as snob. To give to you the reason I will say that I do not like Leonard Cohen's image cut and paste that still appears in http://fiberfib.com/ in your "lovely unspoilt beach" surrounded with "guiris". (In Spain there are named contemptuously "guiris" the tourists who only come to look for the Sun, beach and other summer's topics.)
If you have a broad mind you will be able to observe how from here has become aware as soon as possible and honestly of the cancellation of this concert. If you don't like the news, do not give the fault to the messenger.
I'm very worried if cohenites are being defrauded at this moment buying tickets to see Cohen in Benicàssim. How I have said before these tickets are not for a concert, they are for the whole Festival or for one day (this one is not on sale now). According to the terms of contract there is no right of refund in case of variations or cancellations of concerts.
5. SUSPENSION OR CANCELLATION OF THE EVENT
5.1. The Organisation reserves the right to change, modify or suspend the FIB Heineken programme at any time.
5.2. In the case of total cancellation, the Organisation will refund the full amount of the ticket. The refund, in the case of cancellation, will be made by the Organisation within a period of fifteen days following the public announcement of the cancellation.
5.3. If the cancellation occurs more than half way through the show, there will be no refund at all. At any rate, the distribution cost that sales channels apply to the price of the ticket will not be refunded by the Organisation given that the Organisation is not the recipient of this charge and this service is understood to be rendered at the time of purchasing the ticket.
5.4. The cancellation, total or partial, of FIB Heineken due to forces beyond the Organisation’s control will not lead to ticket refunds.
In order to avoid swindles I hope that you already have warned to "someone with someone who works in the industry" to remove Leonard Cohen of the FIB's program.
I have visited the forum of the FIB, among other curiosities I have seen an acquaintance of hereabouts writing in correct Spanish. Leonard Cohen's topic is with much the most active, even though already the news of the cancellation has come, the organisation tries to support the hopes.
