After Playing Outside of His Ibiza Residency, This DJ Is Being Sued for Nearly $2.7 Million
Marco Carola‘s ongoing legal battle with Amnesia Ibiza continues, as the venue has filed yet another action against the in-demand DJ. The lawsuit seeks €2.4 million for breach of contract.
Carola recently took his Music On residency to Pacha, which just so happens to be a rival club on the island. When Amnesia caught wind, the promoter ordered a fine in the amount of €2.4 million, pending court review.
Soon after, Carola’s opening gig at Pacha came up. He played anyway.
The DJ appeared in Ibiza court yesterday for a separate complaint filed by event promoter It’s All About The Music SL, asking the DJ for €4.48 million. They say every show played outside of Carola’s contract could result in further consequences. Writes Resident Advisor, “Carola’s lawyer rejected all the accusations, stating that none of the legal requirements had been met in order to proceed with the seizure of his client’s property and earnings.”
RA continues, “It’s All About The Music SL is continuing to pursue the seizure of Carola’s assets as a precautionary measure, so as to ensure he has enough funds to pay the damages sought.”
So far, no public word from Marco Carola. We’ll have to see how both these lawsuits play out.
