Movement Festival: 2 Chainz Out, Diafrix In, Major Venue Changes

Nas will still be there.
Apr 11th 2013 | 5:32pm | Dan Condon
The forthcoming Movement Festival, which is set to hit Australia in just a couple of weeks' time, has undergone another series of changes in the lead up to its

Firstly, 2 Chainz will no longer appear on the line up due to “a pending court case and Australia and New Zealand Visa eligibility requirements and processing timelines”. He will be replaced by Melbourne hip hop duo Diafrix on all shows around the country. This comes after the much hyped Angel Haze was forced to cancel her appearance due to recording commitments and was replaced by Los Angeles-based Aussie rapper Iggy Azealia a couple of weeks ago.

There have also been a series of venue changes announced, while the Sydney date remains at the Hordern Pavilion, the rest have shifted to different venues

The Melbourne leg of Movement on Saturday 27 April will now be at Festival Hall, not the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. It remains an all-ages show. Brisbane's event on Sunday 28 April moves to Eatons Hill Hotel from its original location of the Brisbane Riverstage and also remains an all-ages show. Reasons given for this are “adjustments in the lineup and a worse than anticipated long range weather forecast.”

The Perth event, which happens on Tuesday 30 April now moves to Metro City from Red Hill Ampitheatre and now becomes an event strictly for punters over the age of 18 only. Organisers say this is to meet demand for a more centrally located venue on a Tuesday night.

The line up now features: Nas, Bliss n Eso, Chiddy Bang, Joey Bada$$, Iggy Azealia, Diafrix, Spit Syndicate (Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth) and Thundamentals (Sydney only)

Dates are as follows:

Friday 26 April – Hordern Pavilion, Sydney
Saturday 27 April – Festival Hall, Melbourne
Sunday 28 April – Eatons Hill Hotel, Brisbane
Tuesday 20 April – Metro City, Perth
