Esta es la compensación.
Tickets de comida y bebida? Entiendo que hayan tenido perdidas, pero esto...
On 28th September the disaster that hit Pukkelpop was recognized as a natural disaster by the Federal Council of Ministers. After a thorough investigation the Hasselt Public Prosecutor ruled that the Pukkelpop organization had made no mistakes and therefore cannot be held liable. One unfortunate result of this ruling is that the civil liability insurance we had taken out cannot be used to compensate third parties for damages suffered during the Pukkelpop storm.
Pukkelpop sympathizes with all Pukkelpoppers who - like the organizers - have not been able to enjoy the festival as they should have because of the disastrous weather conditions. In spite of the force majeure ruling and the fact that the expenses for Pukkelpop 2011 far exceeded the benefits, the Pukkelpop organization does not wish to leave those who bought a ticket for Pukkelpop 2011 out in the cold. That is why we have decided to offer restitution not only to those Pukkelpoppers who have left their email address, shortcode and questions about possible reimbursement of entrance tickets and food & drink tickets on the Pukkelpop website, but to everyone who bought a Pukkelpop 2011 ticket online.
This is how it works:
The online buyers of e-tickets for Pukkelpop 2011 will receive an email with a link which will allow them to download free ‘Food & Drink Vouchers' for the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Pukkelpop editions. Between Tuesday 1st November and Monday 14th November this link will be emailed to all online ticket buyers.
The value of the allocated vouchers will be approximately the same as the price of the day- or combi-tickets.
If the price of the food & drink tickets should rise in the future, the value of the vouchers will rise accordingly.
- One (1) food & drink ticket is now worth € 2.5.
- The buyer of a day-ticket can download three (3) vouchers for the next three (3) editions. Each voucher is now worth € 25, the equivalent of ten (10) food & drink tickets per edition.
- The buyer of a combi-ticket will be able to download three (3) vouchers for the next three (3) editions. Each voucher is now worth € 50, the equivalent of twenty (20) food & drink tickets per edition.
All Pukkelpoppers can decide to use all the vouchers themselves, to give them to other festivalgoers at their own risk, or not to make use of them at all and in this way support the continued existence of the Pukkelpop festival.
The vouchers are offered as a courtesy by the Pukkelpop organizers under reservation of all their rights and without any acknowledgment prejudicial to their rights.
The vouchers are an exclusive form of restitution to each festivalgoer who bought a Pukkelpop 2011 ticket online. This implies that any other form of restitution, reimbursement or compensation for entrance tickets and/or food & drink tickets purchased for Pukkelpop 2011 is excluded.
The practical info about how to download the vouchers can be found below and also on www.pukkelpop.be under the heading ‘Restitution'.
A few days before the start of the online ticket sale for Pukkelpop 2012, all Pukkelpoppers who bought one or more Pukkelpop 2011 tickets online will be given the opportunity to buy their e-tickets online.
Pukkelpop 2012 will take place on Thursday 16th, Friday 17th and Saturday 18th August.
All of the above allows us to say that Pukkelpop will continue in its original form: three days, eight stages, a mixture of the best bands, DJs and sideshows of the moment combined with a distinctive focus on artists of tomorrow.
The consequences of our decision to pay restitution will weigh heavily on Pukkelpop, the festival as well as the organizers, in the coming years.
You can support the continued existence of Pukkelpop by not, or only partly, using the vouchers. We will respect whatever decision you make and we wish to thank you once again for your patience and understanding.
Pukkelpop 2012: here we go!
