Marco Carola could lose millions of dollars in earnings and property in new lawsuit
He faces court in the next few days…
*Update: Carola played at Pacha last night (16th May), with images of the DJ at Music On's opening party appearing on Pacha's Instagram account.
Marco Carola could lose earnings and property as the result of a new lawsuit, filed by his former promoter, It's All About The Music SL.
It's All About The Music SL are reportedly seeking "millions" in damages, and have asked the judge to seize Carola's assets and earnings from DJing to ensure funds are available should he be convicted, and forced to pay.
With the lawsuit, the promoters are joining forces with Amnesia. The club recently won court ruling to stop Carola from performing anywhere in Ibiza except Amnesia, punishable by a €2.4 million fine. At the time of writing, Carola is still listed on the lineup for tonight’s party at Pacha.
It's All About The Music SL’s representative told Diario De Ibiza that Carola "has broken the contract he signed with us just like with Amnesia,” adding that their client regretted the "traumatic breakdown in relations" between the two parties. Carola will need to head to court to appear before a judge in the next few days.
Amnesia Ibiza has also had its share of legal problems lately. Its license was temporarily suspended late last year by the San Antonio council for illegal structural alterations in order to increase capacity.
Carola, meanwhile, will play alongside Ricardo Villalobos, Sonja Moonear, Tale Of Us, Zip, Jamie Jones, Sven Väth, Seth Troxler and more at Sonus Festival this summer.
