Court orders stay of execution on Çukurova Rock Festival ban

Adana Administrative Court decided to stay the execution of Adana Governorship’s decision to ban the Çukurova Rock Festival

Çukurova Rock Festival, which was planned to be held for the sixth time this year between 12-15 October, was banned by Adana Governorate for “alcohol use and security” reasons. Milyon Productions, which organized the festival, filed a lawsuit with the Adana Administrative Court, demanding the annulment of the Governorate’s ban decision and the suspension of its execution. The court gave a stay of execution regarding the cancellation of the festival and gave time to the Governorate to respond to the defence and interim decision.
