It is with regret that the City of Tshwane advises that the much-anticipated Dinokeng TribeOne music festival which was due to take place from 26 to 28 September 2014 in Dinokeng, Cullinan, is in jeopardy owing to the event organiser’s intention to cancel the staging of the event.
The event organisers have sent us the notification letter to cancel the event, but the City is challenging the decision in court.
The City`s last hope now rests squarely in the hands of the courts.
The Tribe One festival taking place in the Cullinan side of Dinokeng Game Reserve, Gauteng has drawn the attention of many.
