RAMfest 2016 postponed due to crippling rand

Cape Town - The Real Alternative Music Festival on Tuesday announced that RAMfest 2016 has been postponed.

The organiser announced the news on the festival’s Facebook page citing the crippling rand for the unplanned postponement.

The RAMfest team wrote: "The really, really strange South African currency situation has forced us to cancel all of the international artists provisionally booked for RAMfest over the weekend. Unfortunately we have therefore been forced to postpone RAMfest.

"Sorry about that guys but our hands have been cut off. We have no choice in these crazy times. We will be in touch. (PS: everyone who has bought tickets already will be refunded)."

Just last month it was announced that the kings of Rock ’n Roll, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, would be returning to South Africa for #10YearsOfRAM.

Representatives of RAMfest confirmed to Channel24 that the festival has been postponed.
