Anyone know the consumer protection laws in ND? This looks like a bait and switch to me...
Concert promoters setup multi-day festival, advertising Andrew W.K. as the headline event. Less than a week (3-4 days) before the festival starts, Andrew W.K. posts on his website (http://goo.gl/998xzV
) that the promoters canceled the event and he feels terrible.
Promoters' facebook event (http://goo.gl/VBLwnq
) states, "Nope, not canceled. But Andrew W.K. isn't coming." Later Andrew's website is updated to reflect this (still claiming it wasn't his decision).
Promoters have deleted posts from users asking for refunds, and privately tell individuals that, "You're the only one asking for a refund, you should just come." They don't respond well to, "Screw you, I'm not driving 3 hours if you canceled the main event; this isn't weather or Andrew got sick, this is you canceled him." They don't admit they canceled his act, but they don't deny it, either.
Weekend pass is $60, which is barely more than the cost to file in small claims court (maybe less; forget if it's $50 to file or $80 to file).
