A Place In The Sun music festival cancelled

Cape Town - Festival organisers for A Place in The Sun announced on Thursday that the festival has been cancelled.

The festival was set to take place next weekend from 18 – 20 November at the Nkwe Pleasure Resort in Tierpoort, Pretoria.

The organisers released this official statement:

It is with the heaviest of hearts that the organisers of a Place in The Sun must declare the cancellation of the festival a mere week shy of the event.

The proximity of Nkwe Resort to certain medical facilities caused the community to intervene, and halt any further prospects of providing attendees with a Place in the Sun so to speak.

We understand the concerns of the community, and we could not with a clean conscience force the continuation of the festival at the expense of the community residing there.

After the many hours spent fuelled by all the intoxicating support from the artists, vendors, media and especially the unwavering love from the die-hard South African music fans this is surely a heavy burden to lay bare.

We trust that you will have the same regard for our sentiment that it’s not just about spreading good vibes, but also to respect the wishes and well-being of the community. We are as always ever thankful for the ongoing support. But be sure that we will find that sweet spot in the sun, soon.

All ticket enquiries kindly contact info@nutickets.co.za or festival attendees may contact 011 880 2199. Nutickets South Africa will gladly assist regarding refunds.

Kind regards,

The a Place in The Sun Team
