Judge Tosses Lawsuit Over Travis Scott Delay
A proposed class action lawsuit sparked by rapper Travis Scott’s late arrival at a Montreal music festival has been rejected.
University student Megan Le Stum spent $327 on a weekend pass to Osheaga in 2018 and was in the crowd waiting for Scott’s set to begin as scheduled at 9:45 p.m. But, the rapper was delayed by Customs officials and fans grew impatient and aggressive, according to Le Stum. She decided to leave the festival grounds at 10:30 p.m.
Scott made it to the stage just after 11 p.m. and performed a shortened 40-minute set.
Le Stum filed a request for a class action lawsuit against Osheaga producer Evenko. Quebec Court Justice André Prévost ruled against her in June but his decision was only reported this week by the Canadian Press.
Prévost ruled that the festival was not about one performance and that if Le Stum only wanted to see Scott she didn’t need to buy a weekend pass. He also pointed out it was her decision to leave when she did.
The judge also said Evenko made it clear that artists’ scheduled are subject to change.
