Prior to Rouge slapping them with legal documents, Reckless Festival organisers released a statement alleging that Tribe Nation, failed to sign and honour their contractual agreements.
“We are not at fault for the events that succeeded as Tribe Nation failed to sign contracts and honour agreements that were set beforehand,” read the statement.
“Promoters were denied access to the venue and the VIP section. Upcoming artists were denied opportunities to perform. Performers were forcefully ejected from the stage and told to settle in the general section,” it claimed.
