Curaçao Ponton Festival Organization has no money
WILLEMSTAD - The organization of the canceled Curaçao Ponton Festival 2018 says that reimbursement of the entrance tickets is not possible in the short term. There is no money.
However, organizer Giscard Felida says he is working on a solution. But he cannot say how.
Suppliers have also reported that they want to get their money back.
The decision to cancel the well-promoted festival was made after a concurrence of circumstances ensured that it is no longer financially responsible to organize the festival, said the organizers. “The shrinking economy clearly has a negative impact on the population and this was noticeable due to disappointing ticket sales," explains Gisgard Felida of Sumusica Curaçao B.V. from.
The organization received many positive reactions from interested festival visitors on Curaçao and abroad for the first edition of Curaçao Ponton Festival. The Curaçao Pontoon Festival was supposed to take place on 5, 6 and 7 April. Despite the enthusiasm for this three-day music festival and the many promotions through traditional and social media, too few tickets were sold.
