Torrevieja town hall has announced that due to the weather conditions this weekend, the urban music festival “Crazy Urban Festival“, the Summer Carnival Parade and the festivals scheduled in La Mata and San Roque are cancelled.
This morning a coordination and security meeting was held with the assistance of councillors from the affected areas, as well as representatives of the Fire Department, Guardia Civil, Local Police, Civil Protection, members of the festival organisation, as well as the engineer of the event and municipal technicians.
The information provided by the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) was analysed, which indicates a complex and difficult situation with the probability of new hot bursts between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., and the recommendations in the that all professionals have agreed that the safety of citizens or the event cannot be guaranteed, the decision has been made to cancel all outdoor events authorised by the Torrevieja Council scheduled for today, Saturday.
In Valencia, one person was killed and dozens injured in damage caused at a concert last night, so safety concerns are understandable.
In this way, the urban music festival “Crazy Urban Festival” is cancelled, whose structures, which were already set up, have been damaged after the thermal blowout in the early hours of Saturday morning. Tickets will be returned from Friday, August 19, through the same channel through which they were purchased. Likewise, the festivals of La Mata and San Roque have been cancelled, postponing the Summer Parade to a new date that will be communicated by the Department of Fiestas in the future.
From the Torrevieja Council, the response of all the security forces involved is appreciated, and all citizens are asked to take extreme precautions until the weather situation returns to normal.
