This application seeks to obtain a compensation for our client, as well for as all festival goers, who experienced prejudice and/or inconveniences due to Travis Scott’s late arrival as the headliner of the first day of the festival, on August 3rd, 2018.
All persons who bought a single day pass for August 3rd, 2018 (general admission or gold pass) or a weekend pass (general admission, gold pass or platinum pass) for the 13th edition of OSHEAGA Music and Arts Festival.
Chronology of Events

Thousands of people left the festival site after hours of waiting. Others, who were patient enough to stay around until the rapper arrived, got a performance that was almost cut in half.
