Hip Hop Festival Movement Cancelled

Touring hip hop festival Movement has been cancelled, with organisers citing discontent from punters as the main reason behind pulling the plug.

Promoted by reputable companies Live Nation and Niche Productions, the festival was to feature hip hop pioneer Nas as well as Australian star Iggy Azalea. Earlier this month Angel Haze pulled out due to recording commitments and then last week 2Chainz dropped out as a pending court case made it impossible to get a visa.

Today the promoters said that the developments, “led to a change of venues in some markets, which has prompted patron feedback that the event no longer reflected what had been advertised.”

They added, “Live Nation and Niche launched Movement with the intention of providing a well-organised, fully funded multi-artist hip hop and urban music festival, to overcome the disappointment that has occurred in the past due to event cancellations and talent withdrawals from similar events in recent years.

“Despite their best endeavours, the producers have been unable to fulfil their commitment and as such it has been determined that the festival will not go ahead.”

Both promoters maintained that they took “their commitment to deliver the events as advertised very seriously” and will providing ticket holders with full refunds immediately.

Tickets booked online or by phone will be refunded automatically, with punters asked to allow up to five days to be processed. If the original credit card is no longer valid, punters should public place of purchase.

For tickets bought through an outlet, punters are advised to return to the outlet where they made the purchase and refunds will be made upon presentation of the credit card used and photo ID.
