Organizers Pledge Ticket Refunds After Sunset Junction ‘Mess’
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Ticket-holders for a popular Silver Lake street festival that was canceled faced growing fears Tuesday that they may not get their money refunded.
KNX 1070’s Pete Demetriou reports the controversy over the shuttered Sunset Junction Music Fair continues.
Prospective attendees had reportedly paid anywhere from $15 to $100 dollars for one-day tickets or two-day VIP passes to the event.
“They were still selling tickets” after the Board of Public Works denied the permit last Wednesday, according to Michael Perera, who has lived in the area for the last six years.
While organizers of the event have not been answering phones at their office, the Twitter feed from Sunset Junction said “Tickets/vendors money will be refund, it will take some time to clean up this mess Hope every1 understands thanks”.
One local ticket agency has been advising people to call their bank and file a charge-back claim.
Still, Silver Lake resident David sounded skeptical about ever seeing a refund.
“You know the deal,” he said. “No one is stupid here, we know what’s happening.”
