American rapper Cardi B had been announced as this year’s headliner.
But following the announcement made by President Cyril Ramaphosa on the Government’s strict actions in addressing the COVID-19 outbreak, the premium beer brand has announced that the shindig will now be rescheduled to another time.
“We share the disappointment of our fans during this time of uncertainty, however, as a brand that cares for its consumers, we cannot ignore the growing concerns for health and safety as a result of the rapid spread of the COVID-19 in South Africa and around the world”, said Castle Lite Brand Director Silke Bucker.
“It is important to highlight that an event of this magnitude has multiple moving parts and for this reason, the brand is deliberating and will communicate further details around new date and tickets by the end of March 2020.”
The event organisers have also assured that they are in talks with Cardi, and that the event will be back on as soon as it is safe again to do so.
And because the show is merely being postponed, there’s no need to initiate a ticket refund for those who’ve already purchased their ticket. TicketPro has confirmed that the current tickets will be valid for the yet to be announced reschedule.
Should a consumer wish to no longer attend the experience, they will be able to obtain a full refund, details of which will be communicated once we have announced the new performance date.
