Malaga Music Festival 2015 CANCELED

This was the official website for the promotion of the Mijas Music Festival situated in the province of Málaga, La Cala de Mijas thus the name of this website: Malaga Music Festival. It was originally planned for Mijas and was then switched to Manilva after Mijas councillor Juan Carlos Gonzalez insisted that the festival had ‘failed to obtain the proper authorisation’ and was ‘fraudulent’ and would be ‘canceled’. In an eleventh hour decision the organiser, Carl Wileman, decided that the three-day music festival in Manilva would have to be canceled. The announcement was met with outrage online, with some bands who were due to play claiming to have been left completely in the dark. The festival’s official statement read: “Due to the lack of time since the location change, investors felt it was too high risk to offer the final money required to ensure the success of the event. The organizers offered full refunds to all who had purchased tickets. For those who had made plans months in advance to attend, the cancelation caused a debacle.

A group of us who were now left high and dry decided to fly from Spain to Maui, a small tropical paradise that is part of the Hawaiian islands. We looked for a Maui rental on the beach, booked two in the same resort, and took off for a very long plane, change, plane ride. Twenty hours later we staggered to a rental car and drove to the western coast of the island and the town of Kaanapali. The condo rental was certainly on the beach, but not on ground level which was perfectly fine since the views from its decks were amazing. What a great decision. After several days of catching up from the jet lag by chilling on the beach in from of the resort, we were ready to go. We went snorkeling, scuba diving, and for those of us who could surf, surfing. We made the early morning trip to the top of Haleakala and biked down. Viewing the sunrise that morning from on top of Haleakala's moonlight surface was unforgettable. The zipline adventure offered great views, some fun hiking, and informational guides who told us about the foliage and animal/bird life we encountered. I could go on and on. Sure, the cancelation of the Malaga Music Festival was a bummer, but our adventures in Maui more than made up for it.

This is the original 10 year agreement with Mijas town hall saying we have the event pending civil protection plans which we will be adding links for tomorrow. We will also be making publicly available all the invoices we have paid and costs. It's eye watering tbh. But we said we would show these so everyone is aware of the total mess Mijas has made.

After our meeting with our Lawyers

Please find below our considerations for the claim against Mijas Town Hall due to the lack of authorization for the Mijas Music Festival:

1.- The procedure for claiming the sustained damages is called “Public administration's patrimonial responsibility procedure”. It is a special claim that must be filed within the year that follows the moment the damages were sustained. It begins before the public authority that caused the damages (in this case, Mijas Town Hall), and continues before the courts of Málaga.

2.- Originally, we were only going to claim the extra costs and expenses of having to move the festival to Manilva, but now that the Manilva festival was not celebrated due to the lack of time (which we can also blame Mijas for), we must claim ALL the expenses that stem from the festival. We need to set an amount for all these expenses, as well as evidence of payment (invoices, bills, budgets, claims, refunds…)

3.- Once we have this amount set, we will begin with the claim based on two key facts: (i) that Mijas Music Festival filed a formal authorization request before Mijas Town Hall on October 31st, 2014, that was not properly attended (no number procedure or guarantees); (ii) that despite this, the Town Hall made several actions that induce Mijas Music Festival to believe that the festival was going to take place (principle of legitimate expectations).

4.- Depending on the fact that we may reach an agreement or not (having then to wait until the judgment from the court). The amount of the procedure is essential for us to set the costs of the court agent and the court tax.

5.- If the judgment is ruled in our favor, the claimed amount will be increased with interests and legal expenses (usually no more than 30%).

6.- The plaintiff must be Mijas Rock Festival, S.L., since it was the company dealing with Mijas Town Hall. It does not matter if the name of the company is changed in the future.

Anyone who has lost money in anyway will be compensated through this Chanel after successful conclusion.

There has been mentions of fraud, and scam etc we would like to point out that we used to two Chanel's to sell tickets 
PayPal and spaxxo both of which carry a bonnified 100 percent money back guarantee. 
Ticket vendors have also issued refunds to the same effect.

Further details will follow as the case for compensation unfolds.

If you have any queries or require any additional information please contact us on here. Or directly on carl@malagamusicfestival.com

Manilva Music Festival, and it has been called the most important musical event of the province, which will be held at the fairgrounds in our town on 29, 30 and 31 May , taking the term as a host and being chosen for its multiple possibilities .

Besides the musical show, this event is designed for families. There will be playgrounds and possibilities for all audiences. The international impact of Manilva is very important and also, about 200 people will work on these days in various tasks such as cleaning aids, safety, fitters etc. The City Council has required the organizers to all the extras you need for work to be carried out are the municipality, therefore, an agency of the City Council will be enabled to conduct interviews and select staff. As coordinate the days and times will be announced in the local media and social networks.

Returning to the festival itself, the poster highlights twenty artists, the vast majority of British origin, as The Christians, The universal, the arkanes, King Hammond, the Electric Stars and Stone Foundation, among others.

According commented mayor of Manilva, Urieta Diego, is a municipal wish to open economic, tourist and cultural possibilities in the término.ñ for this reason, that Manilva has been the place chosen by the organizers for this event, is a leap in quality with unprecedented international impact. And if a couple hundred people in our municipality can benefit from being able to work these days, even better.

Tickets can acquire in malagamusicfestival.com, although it was later informed of the physical points of sales that will be scattered throughout the coast.

Manilva Music Festival will be held at the fairgrounds, ideal for hosting such events for their spaciousness, public parking and being away from the population centers location. Security is ensured with dozens of professionals.

We are so pleased to announce that after 10 grueling months of hard graft and dedication with a view to bringing a much requested Family Friendly Music Fest to the Costa Del Sol despite all the obstacles and red tape thrown at us, we shall finally be hosting the event in the lovely seaside location of Manilva!

After eleventh hour talks with several Town Halls along the Coast, we decided that by far the best and most appropriate location to celebrate the Festival was Manilva due to it's fantastic infrastructure and the forward thinking Councillors who could see the huge benefits the event would bring to the area

We would like to express our gratitude to Diego and Valentina for welcoming us to their beautiful and picturesque Village and for giving us the go ahead to share a wonderful weekend of fantastic Music and Family for everyone of all ages to enjoy between the 29th and 31st of May!!

Tickets will be available from several outlets which shall be announced at the official press conference on Tuesday including at the Front Line Nutty Bar 50's Diner in the Puerto Deportivo Marbella
