Young Thug Cancels On Laneway Festival, Replacement Announced
It all kicks off in just over a week.
January 18, 2017

With Laneway Festival set to kick off its international run in just over a week, sad news has emerged from the camp with Young Thug cancelling all shows for the 2017 event.

Laneway have stated that the shows, which were set to be Young Thug’s debut shows in the region, have been canned “due to visa complications.” In a cruel twist of fate, the news has been timed perfectly with the release of Thugger’s viral no-show video for ‘Wyclef Jean.’ If you haven’t seen it yet, just watch and bask in the glory of this masterpiece:

Replacing Young Thug will be Brisvegas favourites Dune Rats, who have just released their new single ‘Scott Green’ from forthcoming album The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit, which drops on February 3. Prepare to hear old and new beer-soaked classics from the trio, who will be headlining their own tour with Skegss and The Gooch Palms in March.
