Johannesburg – 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 by the City of Tshwane has been cancelled.

Tribe One Festival posted this statement on their Facebook page:

“TribeOne Festival regrets to announce that the inaugural TribeOne Festival, set to take place in Cullinan on 26, 27 and 28 September 2014, has been cancelled. The event was to be hosted by the City of Tshwane (CoT).

"Site preparation and related infrastructure development required to host the Festival, being the responsibility of the CoT, 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 organizers had always planned. Under the circumstances, and despite efforts to seek alternative arrangements, the organizers have had no option but to cancel the event.

"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.

"All ticket holders will be reimbursed, details of this process will be announced shortly. (sic)"

    Embarrassing, but not surprising.

    Uh huh. The money paid to CoT was probably pocketed. Typical SA!
