Is There A Fyre Festival Scam Coming To Kalamazoo?
Tickets are being sold for a music festival in Kalamazoo featuring Cardi B, Drake, LovelyTheBand and other big artists.
BA Promotions claims that you can see Cardi B, Drake, Waka Flocka, Gucci Maine, LovelyTheBand and many more in Kalamazoo for $130 a ticket on May 25th. We don't for sure if this is real or fake. We all want to believe this is real. However, the devil is in the details.
Wood TV 8 not only found out that the venue had no clue about this music festival, neither did the sponsors or charities,
The event was also a surprise to the companies listed as sponsors. Every representative who spoke with Target 8 Monday, including one for Bell's Brewery, said their business is not affiliated and that the site was using logos without permission.
The website also promises to donate thousands of dollars to charities including St. Jude. No one from St. Jude or the other charities was aware of the event when Target 8 checked in with them.
Additionally, the big performers listed on the site haven't promoted anywhere else that they plan to be in West Michigan on May 25.
When asked to send documentation of artist contracts or other verification, Holland did not do so.
WoodTV 8 also spoke to the promoter who claimed this is NOT a scam. He said this concert is happening and has sold 1,700 tickets already. To make this more confusing this is the youtube video promoting the Kalamazoo show on their website.

If that's not big enough for you. How about a music festival in Kalamazoo on August 24th featuring Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Childish Gambino, Chance the Rapper and the Smashing Pumpkins? Yep, he's selling tickets to that too.
