On a dark day for the Australian Hip-Hop scene which has seen Supafest all but called off, the organisers of it’s main competitor Movement Festival has announced that they will be cancelling the event.
The event, originally planned to take place in the Hordern Pavilion on the same day as Supafest, as well as in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth, has been forced to cancel following the pulling out of headline acts 2Chainz and Angel Haze.
Movement festival’s statement is as follows.
Live Nation and Niche Productions regret to advise that it has become necessary to cancel the inaugural Movement Festival, which was scheduled to take place in Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth next week.
Recent developments, including the withdrawal of Angel Haze (due to a clash in recording commitments) and more recently 2Chainz (due to Visa issues resulting from a pending unresolved court case) led to a change of venues in some markets, which has prompted patron feedback that the event no longer reflected what had been advertised.
Live Nation & Niche launched Movement with the intention of providing a well-organized, 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 fulfill their commitment and as such it has been determined that the festival will not go ahead.
Those who have supported Movement by purchasing tickets will be provided with a full refund for their tickets. Whilst this is a disappointing result, Live Nation and Niche view their commitment to deliver the events as advertised very seriously.
