Despite having his New Zealand visa, recent complications with the visa process for Australia means that Young Thug is not able to play any Laneway Festival dates in 2017. Laneway Festival management have expressed their disappointment with this outcome as they indicated that they’ve been working to get Young Thug at the festival for some years now.
As some festival-goers may have bought tickets specifically to see Young Thug they have opened up a window for refund requests. See below for more details.
In better news, Sydney-based electronic project What So Not has agreed to cross the ditch for an appearance at Laneway Festival New Zealand. In late 2016 the in-demand producer and DJ released the stunning Divide & Conquer EP, followed by the much hyped colab with RL Grime and Skrillex ‘Waiting’ – a track Billboard called “an electrified banger”.
What So Not takes a break from recording his full-length debut to get the Auckland crowd on their feet, before heading off on tour dates that include a return Coachella appearance.
Refund requests are open for a limited period, for ticket purchasers who bought between 9pm on Wednesday 7th December 2016 (Time of Young Thug announcement) and 2.30pm on Wednesday 18th January 2017.
The refund request period will be open for 72 hours only – from now until 2.30pm Saturday 21st January. No refund requests will be accepted outside of this period.
Contact Moshtix here and select Laneway Festival 2017, Young Thug Refund Request. If your refund request is approved, your refund will be processed within 10 business days.
