High number of fake tickets to this year’s Smukfest in circulation

Police warn there is no compensation for duped buyers

Festival passes for this year’s Smukfest were sold out before organisers had even announced the line-up.

The sales of partout passes started in December and were gone before January was over.

And police are now receiving reports of fraudsters selling phoney tickets, particularly online.

Cops can’t get tickets either
Southeast Jutland Police is warning festival-goers that an online ticket deal that looks too good to be true probably is.

“People are buying tickets on the internet for this sold-out event that they never actually receive,” Steen Edeling, a police inspector, told DR Nyheder.

Edeling warned that the police can do little to help the hoodwinked customer.

“You can report it, and we will try to help, but we cannot under any circumstances obtain the tickets,” he said.
