VestiVille Hip-Hop Fest Turns Into Horrid Fyre Fest 2.0

Another tragic disappointment with Ja Rule’s name on the bill.

(AllHipHop News) You would think fans would learn from the disaster of Fyre Fest, where concert-goers were completely ripped off.

Now, it looks like VestiVille follows suit. What should have been an eventful weekend in Lommel, Belgium — with headliners Cardi B, Migos, and A$AP Rocky — turned out to be another disaster.

The colorful flier reveals standout names in hip-hop, performing over June 28 through June 30th at Kristal Park.

Apparently, once you finally entered the premises, you quickly found out it was canceled.

One attendee tweets, “#vestiville wait two hours to get in and it’s cancelled, spent 800 pound in total and came all the way from the uk are u mad. And apparently no refund? The debt is mad 🤣”

Others tweet videos depicting real-life footage of people standing around, with no live music to be seen or heard.

What really caused it to be deemed Fyre Fest 2.0 was the lack of food and water for all those in attendance. How do you host a festival without food or water?

One Twitter user shared a video of what was happening inside: utter chaos. She writes, “Scenes at @VestiVille were beyond scary. Unprofessional and so unsafe. No announcement regarding cancellation and staff members put at risk. Ridiculous.”

Check out the official statement:

We have recently been informed that VestiVille 2019 has unfortunately been cancelled.

Festicket - acting as ticket agent on behalf of VestiVille festival - is currently liaising with the organiser to find out the exact reasons for the cancellation and assess their next steps.

Once we have done this, we will contact all Festicket customers regarding ticket refunds. We hugely appreciate your patience and we'll be in touch as soon as possible.

Best,

The Festicket Team

Yikes.
