Much awaited Hype Fest rescheduled to June 2019 due to unforeseen circumstances

The much-anticipated Hype Fest has been rescheduled to June this year due to circumstances beyond the organizer’s control.

According to a statement released by the organizers Hype Group Ltd yesterday  (11.04.19) on social media said that it is with deep regret that they were pushing Hype Fest to 29th of June 2019 due to circumstances beyond their control.

Hype Group apologized for any inconvenience caused and promised to put up a bigger better show at the upcoming event date.

The statement further said that the organizers will be issuing refunds to all those who wished to get refunded for their purchased tickets and requested ticket holders to email

The rescheduling was a culmination of a series of mishaps with the event that was supposed to happen on April 27th and 28th 2019. It first started with the dropping of all international acts as previously advertised that they would be bringing one UK artist, one Jamaican artist, one Nigerian artist to the +254, as well as over 10 Kenyan artists and DJs all in one stage.

Next, the troublesome Ethic crew was ‘kicked out’ of the event due to the ongoing legal issues. Then Hype Group recently released another statement that they had cut down the event days to one due to constraints beyond them and that day 2 ticket holders would be able to use the same ticket for a friend or email for a refund.
