no idea why you'd book a festival without first applying for the licence. weak.
a little over a week in advance? fairly rubbish
In terms of refunds, 'approach', language etc.
suppose that's the thanks you get for trying to do something outside of the mainstream
I think the venue, which has put on music before, thought it was covered by current license, & it's turned out it isn't. Do you need something different for all day music, rather than just evening? Above a certain number of people?
As I said in the ATP refund thread, I got an email announcing the cancellation (which didn't give much away) & 10mins later an email saying I'd been refunded. Was also enough time to cancel the car rental, hotels, & get a refund on over half the train fare.
If anyone hasn't bought a ticket for Liverpool Psych Fest yet I'd think twice, 'cos I'm going to that too & am obviously cursed.
