Patrons, service providers and artists are up in arms over the cancellation of would-be continental music festival the TribeOne Dinokeng Festival. A statement released by the organisers on Thursday confirmed that head-liners such as US hip-hop artists Nicki Minaj, J.Cole, Macklemore+Ryan Lewis, Nigerian star D'Banj and SA's own Khuli Chana, Mafikizolo and others would no longer perform in the three-day mega-fest.

Questions remain around what happened, mere days before the festival was set to happen and whether patrons will be reimbursed.
