Herve Bastien, the spokesman of Compas Festival, has resigned from the position following the decision of the festival producers to cancel the band DO-LA from the line-up. It has been reported that two other bands were added to the new line-up, and appeared on the official flyer. Bastien, who is Do-La’s representative in South Florida, feels that since his band is left out, he can no longer offer his services to the festival.
