MARBELLA’S Starlite Festival, which this year featured Kool & The Gang, John Legend and Jessie J, is yet to pay its fee, the PSOE has said.

Despite concluding more than seven weeks ago, organisers of the legendary music event still owe the Town Hall €125,000.

That is according to Javier Porcuna, a councillor of the left wing party, who claimed the company Bendeus SL has not paid its bill.

The outstanding fees are related to the use of the Cantera de Nagueles auditorium, the venue of the festival used every summer.

Porcuna pointed out that Starlite organisers had agreed to pay up before June 1 to September 13, 2019, when activities started.

“We do not understand this delay and we demand that the government team act and demand the payment of these funds, which are an important resource for the city of Marbella,” the politician said.

He also said the PSOE would demand a written report of the requirements for Bendeus SL to pay and criticised Marbella Town Hall’s ‘lack of diligence’.

Porcuna added that the unpaid fees ‘could put the celebration of the festival at risk next year,’ as payment is one of the issues town hall bosses are reviewing as they assess Starlite’s future.
