Laneway Festival 2017: Young Thug Out, What So Not In

Due to recent complications with his visa process, well-known American rapper Young Thug will not be able to play any Laneway Festival 2017. We are deeply upset upon hearing the issue as we have wanted to see Young Thug light up the stage at the festival after a few years off from the limelight.

"We empathise with those fans who may have bought tickets and are eager to see Young Thug. We offer our sincerest apologies and to make amends for this saddening news, we have allotted a window for refund requests." - Laneway Festival

On the other hand, we are elated that Sydney-based electronic project What So Not has agreed to cross the ditch for an appearance at Laneway Festival in Auckland. In late 2016 the in-demand producer and DJ released the stunning Divide & Conquer EP, followed by the much-hyped collaboration 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:
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.

Please contact Moshtix through http://tixsupport.moshtix.com.au and select Laneway Festival 2017, Young Thug Refund Request. If your refund request is approved, your refund will be processed within 10 business days.
