Organizers and plaintiffs have reached a settlement agreement in a class-action lawsuit against Montreal's Festival Metro Metro.\nIf the settlement is approved in court in January 2020, some of the festival's attendees would be eligible for compensation.\nThe class action alleges that the festival sold tickets for more than the advertised price.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nMetro Metro Festival attendees who purchased tickets online are now eligible to participate in a class-action lawsuit against festival organizers. The news comes after consumers were charged fees at checkout in addition to the price of a ticket, which, the lawsuit alleged, is a violation of Quebec's Consumer Protection Act.\nThe lawsuit claims that those who purchased a first-round weekend pass at the advertised $170 and a VIP pass at $300 were charged a service fee of $26.75 and a delivery fee of $26.50, along with taxes. Consumers realized that this was a huge difference from the advertised prices. Naturally, people felt cheated and organized against the Metro Metro festival.\nThe festival attracted some of the biggest names in hip-hop including Cardi B, Tyga, Future, and Snoop Dogg. Organized by the same people behind Beachclub, the festival was a huge success and is returning to Montreal in 2020.\nWhen the first round of tickets sold out, the festival released more at $190 for the weekend pass. The service fees were eliminated for this price and in total, there was only a $2 difference between both prices.\nThose who are eligible for the class-action lawsuit against Metro Metro Festival will be contacted. You're only eligible if you purchased a weekend pass or a gold VIP pass at metrometro.electrostub.com.\nView this post on Instagram C'est l'heure de planifier ton week-end ! 🔥 Voici l'horaire détaillé du Festival Metro Metro | 18-19 MAI 2019 ! 🎟 Les passes week-end sont maintenant sold out à 99%, n'attends plus et procure-toi la tienne dès maintenant : metrometro.ca/billets Présenté par @videotron et @budlightliving. // It's time to plan your weekend ! 🔥 Here is the detailed schedule of Festival Metro Metro | 18-19 MAI 2019 ! 🎟 Weekend passes are now 99% sold out, so don't wait any longer and get yours now : metrometro.ca/tickets Presented by @videotron and @budlightliving.
