Quebec’s Amnesia Rockfest is celebrating its 10th year in 2015 with a whole slew of 90s and 00s bands that we all know and love. Now, the festival is not just getting press from its legendary lineup, but organizers are outraged at finding out that a pornographic film was made on the campgrounds during last year’s festivities.
The festival prides itself on providing tent and RV camping areas for festival attendees. Porn production company, AD4X Videos, have tried something similar at another festival in the past, as well. According to the production company’s president, all participants in the video were consenting adults and therefore permitted to appear in the film. The argument is that the filming itself took place on private land – the camping area – so they did not need to obtain permission from the festival to film their movie.
It’ll be interesting to see how this works out over the next little while. And hey… if nothing else, it may bring a completely new demographic to this year’s festival taking place in June.
