The event organizers are outraged by attendees — who spent $400 to go — saying they haven’t gotten any updates while they wait, calling for it to be cancelled.

Event organizers closed all four main stages at North Byron Parklands, in northern NSW, on Friday.

A-list artists Gorillaz, DMAs, Yungblud and the Avalanches were supposed to perform, but their acts have since been cancelled.
