Katrin Siska’s message she wrote us:

[..] We are sooooooo sad!!!!

We feel terribly bad because of what happened with Pestivals.

In the beginning of this year we refused from all the other shows for this summer and Pestivals was the only huge Vanilla Ninja concert-show planned this year in whole Europe after 3-year break.

This is unbelievable that we planned to give a ggggreat 10th VN anniversary performance in Latvia and now it is cancelled!

Organizer did not sign our contract and used our popular band name without any written permission to sell lots of festival tickets.

We asked Pestivals organizer to remove Vanilla Ninja band name from the festival list and to buy back all the festival tickets from VN fans.

We are totally sad, angry and disappointed! Unfortunately we don”t have now time at all to organize something else, very big and cool for this summer.

:((

Actually, there exists a possibility that Pestivals’ organizers are hiding the truth from Vanilla Ninja fans and this is why they are not answering questions concerning contracts with other artists. Vanilla Ninja confirmed that there was no contract signed with them and the deadlines they had set were entirely ignored by the organizers. Apart from that, neither B.o.B. nor Lloyd, nor other artists as well, have listed their performance at Pestivals on their official websites.

We suggest you to follow Vanilla Ninja’s Facebook page as it gives the real information about the whole situation. You can also keep an eye on Pestivals Facebook page and posts by others.

We will keep you updated. Last updated 11.07.2012 13:30

    Personally, I know it wasn’t. They cared too much about this performance and was too excited to just let it go…

    Even if it’s not there fault at all, it’ll be nice (even if fans return their tickets) they come to Riga anyway and their fans dont need to refund their plane, bus, traintickets aswell.

    A lot of ppl didnt just pay a lot of money but maybe canceled other plans or their tickets arent refundable what so ever. I think for one day and with just a little effort VN could at least meet their (leftover) fans in Riga and have a good time together.
    It doesnt even include to stay over night. And i guess busses or the plane TLL – RIGa isn’t that expansive for them.

    Something like they did in Pärnu 2006. Just them, their guitars and that’s it. No orchester, no big band no stage need!!!!!!

    I didnt buy anything at all, but i feel very sorry for the ones who did.

    Yes, Katrin also wrote similar message to us too 🙂
    It’s really not Vanilla Ninja fault.
    I mean who’s gonna perform with negative balance. I feel like they would have been okay with the idea to end with 0 or little profit, just to not disappoint us. Everything has limits. Don’t be surprised, if there won’t be no Pestivals at all.
    After all, Katrin said they will consider a fan meeting. If there will be such thing, the girls or/and we will inform you.

    I agree with you, Annchy 🙂

    Kati is usually always speaking with all the girls and later contacting the fans or press about the situation. 🙂
    It’s not like other girls don’t care but i guess if it comes to publishing statement she says “Hold on, I can do this! ” 😀

    Why can’t you make concert or go away totally. I think if you want to play, you would arrange and come anyway. Stop telling you love us and care us and you are sad.
