Q: Event was postponed to 2021. Based on festival terms, it can be postponed without a refund. What said US law about this?
My bank rejected my chargeback based on the festival host t&c. I'm not a USA citizen. I live in Europe.
A: Parties to a contract have the right to negotiate terms relating to unforeseen events; and how any risks associated with said events would be assumed by the parties. That being said you should retain counsel to fully review the contract to determine your rights and make attempts to negotiate a peaceful resolution of the dispute.
Bruce Alexander Minnick agrees with this answer
A: Your best--if not only solution--is to cooperate with the US based event planner while they struggle to stay solvent in this very deep depression facing the entire world. The contract allows you to postpone the event; so why not accept the terms of the contract you signed and postpone it until sometime 2021--as allowed. This act of cooperation will go far to helping the event planner make it through 2020 and into 2021; so if you continue making waves you may be hurting what little is left of your chances to come out of this situation in good shape.
