The organisers of the Heatwave Festival have had to juggle their acts after D12 missed their flight to Adelaide.
A Facebook post from the Heatwave peeps reads, “Guys even though we’re off to a ripper start and every artist KID CUDI, CHAMILLIONAIRE, OBIE TRICE, CRAZYTOWN, TECH N9NE is either here or about to land…we have some bad news! D12 have missed their flights and will not be performing tonight as scheduled in SA. We are more bummed than you guys seeing as we’ve paid them for a current no-show. We are working overtime to get them here on Saturday and have moved BOMBS AWAY over to tonight’s slot. D12 VIP holders will immediately be upgraded to an XXL VIP. We will be doing everything in our power to make D12 play even if it is Sunday aftenoon!”
Kid Cudi heads the bill, with veteran wordsmith Tech N9ne, Eminem’s crew D12 and buddy Obie Trice, rap-rockers Crazy Town, and Mr ‘Ridin Dirty’ Chamillionaire.
