The Catalan Water Agency (ACA) has presented a resolution proposal that denies, for now, the permission for the celebration of the Doctor Music Festival, scheduled from July 11 to 14, in an area between Escalarre, Guingueta d'Àneu and Esterri d'Àneu (Lleida), due to flood risk.
As reported by the Department of Territory to Efe, the report considers that the esplanade chosen to celebrate the festival is in danger of flooding and that, therefore, the organization of the festival now has a period of 10 days to send a new proposal.
Territory highlights that the area where the festival is planned to develop is an area of influence of the Noguera Pallaresa River and four other tributaries.
Also, the stages, tents and camping areas and parking are located near the river, a space in which "you should avoid the accumulation of people" and the same happens in the planned location for the bars and tents, near the river Unarre.
If a new proposal has not been sent in ten days, the report will be sent to the Ebro Hydrographic Confederation (CHE), who will determine the viability of the festival.
Since the festival they have assured that they will present the necessary allegations so that, finally, the event can be celebrated that already has the confirmation of international artists such as Rosalia or The Chemical Brothers.
For their part, the ecologists of Ipcena have celebrated this Friday the emission of the report of the ACA and hope that, after the pertinent studies, the permission to carry out the festival is denied.
