BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – SEVENTY-FIVE general admission tickets to this year’s St. Kitts Music Festival have disappeared without a trace.
Reports of the tickets’ disappearance have been circulating long before the Music Festival Committee had confirmed the theft.
In a statement Monday (Jun. 24), the Committee said its members and the police are currently investigating the theft of 75 tickets for the concerts.
The missing batch is said to be general admission tickets and they were illegally taken during the course of last week.
The Committee has warned that any person who turns up at the event with a ticket from the stolen batch would be arrested, as its members are aware of the serial numbers.
“The police and other security personnel have been alerted and briefed and will be on the lookout for anyone attempting to enter the Stadium with the stolen tickets.
“Members of the public have therefore been warned that if they are found with any of these tickets the full weight of the law will be administered and they will not be allowed entry to the concerts.”
Meanwhile, the Committee said it has also been made aware that a number of persons have been offering complimentary tickets for sale to unsuspecting persons.
To this end, persons are cautioned “against aiding and abetting those individuals who are breaking the law to sell either the stolen or complimentary tickets”.
The 2019 St, Kitts Music Festival officially kicks off today (Jun. 26) at the Kim Collins Athletic Stadium in Bird Rock and ends on Sunday (Jun. 30).
