The cancellation of the highly anticipated Tribe One music festival will reportedly resulted in legal action, headed by the City of Tshwane.
The Tribe One festival was set to take place in Cullinan on 26, 27 and 28 September 2014 and international acts Nicki Minaj, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Kid Ink and J Cole were set to perform.
According to Business Day, Organisers Rockstar 4000 blamed the City of Tshwane citing failure of proper “site preparation and related infrastructure development” resulted in the cancellation.
The City of Tshwane hit back, saying it had delivered on what was asked and they were shocked by the decision to cancel the event.
“The organisers had chosen an open space which had no infrastructure whatsoever for the venue, and requested the City to develop roads, install water supply and electricity and prepare the stage area, all of which the City delivered.”
“The City has also learnt through various sources that the event organisers have apparently failed to meet some of their financial obligations to the suppliers they had procured to assist with the staging of the event,” the City of Tshwane statement claims.
The City of Tshwane reportedly added that it would take Rockstar 4000 and Sony Music Entertainment Africa to court over the matter.
A Sony Music spokesperson declined to comment on the proceedings.
