Festival ticket holders continue to be left out of pocket as the organiser of the cancelled Idaho Rockfest has filed for bankruptcy.
The Idaho festival, which was set to take place in August, revealed it wouldn’t take place after organiser Ron Heyrend was sued by an entertainment agency for not paying a broker’s fee. He owes the firm $25,163, as well as all the refunds to the Rockfest ticket holders.
The Post Register reports that Heyrend filed for bankruptcy protection last week, with court documents stating that he owes around $123,000.
When the cancellation was announced, a Facebook post told people they would be refunded within 24 to 48 hours, however many people are still awaiting their money.
Since then, refunds for the $99 two-day tickets have been inconsistent, with many people out of pocket.
