Local 60s festival blows away

It was not a good weekend for music fans in Mpumalanga. The sixties festival in Mpumalanga was cancelled on Saturday after the stage collapsed. Event organisers say the main stage, erected inside Mbombela Stadium, was blown away by a strong wind a few hours before the show was set to start."After working so hard to bring the show together, it is very sad that such a thing had to happen," said event organiser Josta Sekgotla in an interview with Sowetanlive. Sekgotla confirmed that no one had been injured. He said they lost thousands of rands because they had already paid for the venue and the artists had also been paid their deposits.
