A 23-year-old man from Sandes is being investigated for the sale of (10-20) fake festival passes. He has previously been convicted of the same type of fraud.


“In April this year, the 23-year-old was sentenced in Jæren District Court for ticket fraud,” says Stavanger Aftenblad. He admits in court that he has sold six counterfeit tickets to the Palmesus festival, which is organized annually in Kristiansand. He sold the tickets for close to 2,000 NOK each, and he had to serve 27 days in jail for the internet fraud.

Now he is under investigation from fooling several young people from all over the country.

Palmesus is hosting its tenth year and it is one of the country’s most popular music festivals.
