Live Nation and Niche Productions have announced all shows including Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth will no longer happen.

The Movement Festival featured NAS, Bliss N Eso, Chiddy Bang, Joey Bad$$$, Diafrix, Iggy Azalea, Spit Syndicate and Thundermentals.

In a statement, the promoters said, “Recent developments, including the withdrawal of Angel Haze (due to a clash in recording commitments) and more recently 2Chainz (due to Visa issues resulting from a pending unresolved court case) led to a change of venues in some markets, which has prompted patron feedback that the event no longer reflected what had been advertised”.

“Live Nation & Niche launched Movement with the intention of providing a well-organized, fully funded multi-artist Hip-hop and urban music festival, to overcome the disappointment that has occurred in the past due to event cancellations and talent withdrawals from similar events in recent years.

“Despite their best endeavours, the producers have been unable to fulfill their commitment and as such it has been determined that the festival will not go ahead”.

Refunds are now available for all ticket-holders.
