Splendour concertgoers are not happy about his last minute cancelation.

Several people with tickets are tweeting their disappointment over the news.

"Love Chance the Rapper & been looking for side shows for 4 months. His gig at Splendour came on and off his website all this time. Pretty weak effort as suspect he was never coming," one fan wrote.

"Can I pls see your medical certificate to confirm why you pulled out of splendour? I bought a ticket purely for you," tweeted another.

Splendour In The Grass is offering Sunday single-day ticket holders refunds, but those who purchased the three day pass are out of luck.

Chance The Rapper's set has already been replaced with Australian hip hop band Hilltop Hoods.
