Nicki Minaj’s fans have found themselves in limbo this morning after not hearing anything regarding refunds after yesterday’s Wireless festival drama.
Hundreds of angry festival goers – who paid more than £60 for a day ticket to the event – took to Twitter to complain about her arriving two hours late – causing many to miss her performance in order to get the last train home.
Today a spokesperson for Wireless told us their was no further news following the complaint.
Yesterday Nicki was set to appear on stage at 7pm but she ended up stuck in traffic on the way up from Luton Airport.
Organisers were left red-faced when they were forced to admit that they had lost touch with the hip hop artist when she failed to appear on stage at Finsbury Park in North London.
A message which flashed up on screen read: “Special announcement: we are told that she was due to be speeding down the M1 from Luton Airport as we speak but we have lost contact with her, we are hoping that she will be here soon.”
According to the festival’s website, she was due on stage between 7pm and 8pm, ahead of headliner David Guetta at 8.40pm.
Organisers later added: “We’re assured Nicki Minaj is still on her way and will perform with David Guetta. He’s on at 8.30 and she’ll join him soon after.”
At gone 9pm she still hadn’t arrived on stage as David performed their duet Turn Me On without her and fans made reference to last year’s event when Drake failed to turn up.
One outraged fan posted on Twitter: “@WirelessFest last yr it was drake this yr Nicki?! How do we apply for a part refund We came just for her A song with David ain’t gd enough. (sic)”
One fan, who did not wish to be named, also told Mirror Celeb: “I’ve been waiting for Nicki all day. I’m very disappointed. I will definitely be asking for a refund.”
“Feel really bad for @NICKIMINAJ fans who spent money on tix & travel, expecting a 60min set, to be told she’ll be joining Guetta #Wireless,” one user also wrote on Twitter.
“NICKIMINAJ no apology for being 2 hours late and ruining davidguetta set?disappointingfans wireless manners,” wrote someone else.
Another wrote on the social media site: “@WirelessFest can I have a refund. Came to see a full Nicki set. Had to leave #shambles #weekendruined #NickiMinaj #noshow.”
