‘Expect delays, please work with us when entering the festival,’ one post read.

‘You’re going to have to allow for extra travel time.’

Festivalgoers have vented their frustration online saying they have been waiting hours to catch a free shuttle to the festival with rideshare drivers charging hundreds of dollars.

‘Yeah must be nice if you can get there, bus ques [sic] are 2 hours plus, uber is $300 and you won’t allow people to get dropped off….after yesterday was cancelled,’ one person wrote.

Another person added: ‘There are a couple hundred of us that have been waiting in line for hours the buses that are supposed to stop have been driving past, people left with HOURS of time to see the artist they paid to see and ubers are hundreds of dollars to get there.

‘This is a complete embarrassment the communication has been ridiculous, we don’t even know if we will have a bus stop today.
