DRIP World has announced it will be moving back its Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane festival dates because of immigration issues beyond their control.
Obviously the assumption we all make given the current festival climate and NSW’s nanny state is that the festival is cancelling, but that’s not the case. Current ticket holders, who paid $109 and up for their admittance, were this morning notified of the news via email, complete with an option for a full refund should they be unable to make the new dates.
The music festival has been gaining huge momentum thanks to its stellar lineup of big-name hip hop and trap artists, including Migos, Akon and French Montana, which the festival organisers must be hugely committed to delivering on, because let’s be honest, many festivals have moved full-steam ahead even when a headliner drops out.
Lui Spedaliere, CEO, Yellow Live said:
“We are committed to our promise in delivering the best urban experience for Australian hip hop fans and do not want to compromise in delivering a top-quality bill that fans deserve. We hope you’ll understand the position we are in and will join us as we restart the countdown to our massive events. And trust us, we’re more determined than ever for every event to be worth the wait.”
Original dates included Sydney on August 31, Brisbane on September 1, Melbourne on September 7 and Perth on September. Drip World’s new dates and final line-up will be announced in the coming weeks, with the event set to move from winter to summer and take place January 2020.
