Hey guys, it’s with deep regret that we have to push this event forward to the 29th of June due to circumstances beyond our control. We promise to give you a bigger and better experience than anticipated. For those that had purchased tickets and would like a refund, kindly contact [email protected] to start the processing. Sorry for any inconvenience caused to you the fan and all artists that were scheduled to perform. It’s still #PlayKE
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 tickectsasa.com.
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.
Despite their recent internal issues, the events company was able to make the ‘Nobody Can Stop Reggae’ concert in February featuring legendary Jamaican singer Richie Spice.
