Lil Pump's appearance at next year's FOMO Festival events have been axed. 

In a statement issued today by FOMO organisers, the cancellation comes after the US rapper's "recent arrests and a failure to comply with Australian work visa application requirements".

As reported by TMZ, Lil Pump was removed from a Miami flight last week and arrested for disorderly conduct after he was wrongly accused of carrying drugs on the plane. 

Additionally, Scottish artist SOPHIE has also been forced to cancel her shows at FOMO due to personal reasons. 

In their place, Portland rapper Aminé  and US duo Loud Luxury join the festival line-up, which will tour through Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne in the first week of January.

Due to Lil Pump's cancellation, the FOMO By Night event in Brisbane will no longer be going ahead, while the Perth leg has moved to Metro City, with Zimbabwe-Australian hip hop artist Carmouflage Rose added to the line-up.
