In a statement released on Monday to Bang, Drop Entertainment Group, who were behind the festivals said:
‘After ongoing conversation and consultation with this year’s headline act, Chris Brown, and in light of the performer’s recent personal and health-related issues, a decision has been made to cancel all four scheduled performances.’
