Belgian festival leaves punters stranded for 14 hours

festival 30/06/2019

It's safe to say Belgium's VestiVille festival hit a few snags this weekend.

Headline by the likes of Cardi B, A$AP Rocky, Future, Migos and  ironically, Fyre Festival co-founder Ja Rule, the festival was abruptly cancelled last minute on Friday - its first day.

When attendees arrived to the camp grounds, the cancellation was announced and attendees were reportedly unable to leave for hours, with food and water not provided.

A$AP Rocky had previously pulled out of the lineup after visiting the site and noticing potential safety issues and said that organisers lied to him.

VestiVille later made a statement addressing the situation, and have been roasted in the comments.

To make the situation even more ridiculous, the festival founders literally go by the name '2CROOKS'! According to the Brussels Times, three of the festival organisers had been charged with fraud involving false invoices, forgery, money laundering and abuse of trust. The charges reportedly originate from suppliers who haven't been paid. 

Here's hoping everyone gets their money back!
