A Montreal woman is launching a class-action lawsuit against Montreal-based concert promoter Evenko after Friday night Osheaga headliner Travis Scott showed up late and played a shorter than expected set.
Megan Le Stum says Evenko was in breach of contract and failed to live up to its advertised promise of a 70-minute set by the rapper from Houston, Texas.
Scott was schedule to perform from 9:45 to 10:55 p.m. Friday. Instead, his set began at 11:02 p.m. and finished at 11:40, a total of 38 minutes.
Le Stum said Scott’s performance was the main draw for her to attend Osheaga Friday night, and if he weren’t performing she never would have purchased a ticket for that day.
“Travis Scott is known to have these high energy shows that are really worth the while and worth the wait,” Le Stum told CBC.
“This is a principle of equity. I paid $150 for that single day. We were disrespected in that we didn’t get that headliner show,” she added.
