Marco Carola paid a brief visit to an Ibiza court on May 22 to deny recent accusations made against him by Amnesia Ibiza and It’s All About The Music SL of contract breach. The drama surfaced about a week prior to his meeting with judges, when the two entities joined in suing him for setting a residency up at rival club Pacha. His current contracts with the superclub and the promoter forbid him from performing anywhere else on the island aside from Amnesia, and had been backed by court orders earlier.
This case is particularly problematic, because Carola has over two dozen shows planned on the island throughout the season. Each time he plays outside his contractual confines, he risks fines upwards of €2.4 million. It’s All About The Music requested full seizure of Carola’s assets while the case goes to court, but the defendant’s lawyers have been able to block the motion thus far on account of him not qualifying for such drastic measures. At the low end of the monestary spectrum, should Marco lose the case, he’d owe at least €6.6 million in damages to both Amnesia and It’s All About The Music.
Both the plaintiffs and defendants have either denied or not returned media requests for further comment.
