weather crash overturns bruckenfest planning

Thomas kestler has been organizing the bruckenfest since 2004. He never had to cancel. But on wednesday he decided to cancel the three-day festival that was supposed to start on friday. The weather forecast for the weekend was more unsatisfactory. "When the temperature drops from 30 to 15 degrees, people stay under their blankets in the living room", says the organizer. The risk of losing up to 2,000 euros is too high for him. "Naturally, something like this goes back and forth in your stomach until the decision is made", says the restaurateur. He had decided alone, because he was also the only one to bear the costs.

Therefore thomas kestler made many phone calls on wednesday morning to cancel the music groups and to cancel the technical equipment and the food.
He also told the head of the public order office, klaus backer, on wednesday morning that the bruckenfest would not take place this year.
"The city of forchheim has been very accommodating", says thomas kestler. And klaus backer emphasized that the cancellation was without problems from the point of view of the public order office. There are no costs, because the city is still responsible for the planned roadblocks, etc. No work has been done.
