The inaugural edition of the festival which was billed to hold on Saturday, September 15 in Raleigh, North Carolina, US was expected to feature Nigeria's Davido alongside the likes of the festival creator J Cole, Big Sean, Bas, Nelly, Young Thug, Teyana Taylor and more.
The festival has now been postponed indefinitely by organizers on Monday evening in the wake of reports of Hurricane Florence expected to hit Northern and Southern Carolina starting this Thursday.
This was confirmed through a statement released by the festival organizers on its social media platforms and have announced that tickets will be refunded to those who have already purchased.
The National Hurricane Center is already warning residents of a triple threat in the Carolinas, with Hurricane Florence described as a “life-threatening storm surge” at the coast — a tsunami-like rise in ocean water over normally dry land.
Over 1.5 million people have already been evacuated from the Carolina coast since the announcement of the hurricane’s advancement.
