Fans who were expecting to see Nicki Minaj, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Kid Ink and J Cole will have to wait a bit longer.

The inaugural TribeOne Festival set to be hosted in Cullinan on September 26 – 28 by the City of Tshwane has been cancelled.

Tribe One Festival announced the cancellation of the festival in a statement on their Facebook page.

“Site preparation and related infrastructure development required to host the Festival, being the responsibility of the City of Tshwane, fell behind schedule to a material extent, such that it was no longer realistically possible to stage and deliver the festival to the scale and quality that the organisers had always planned. Under the circumstances, and despite efforts to seek alternative arrangements, the organisers have had no option but to cancel the event,” the post said.

“TribeOne Festivals apologises to all of those who were looking forward to the festival – both the ticket holders, and the international and local performing artists who were booked by TribeOne Festivals for the event.”

The post said that all ticket holders would be reimbursed.
