AEG Files Lawsuit Against Danny Wimmer Presents For “Stealing” Rock On The Range & Carolina Rebellion

According to Billboard, AEG filed a lawsuit against Danny Wimmer Presents in a Los Angeles, CA superior court yesterday (November 29). The two previously co-owned and co-promoted Rock On The Range and Carolina Rebellion, but after their partnership dissolved, Wimmer re-branded the festivals as Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival and Epicenter. AEG’s attorneys say Wimmer “relied upon deceit and fraud to achieve its goal of stealing these highly acclaimed festivals.” Billboard goes on to say the company are “suing Wimmer on 25 civil counts, alleging breach of fiduciary duty, fraudulent misrepresentation, breach of contract, unfair competition and trademark infringement.” However, the site also said industry sources have told them that “their deal also included language that allowed either side to walk away from the agreement and create a competing event.” You can find more info HERE.
