Supafest postponed

Today is proving to be a bad one for hip hop fans and promoters alike: Movement Festival cancelled an hour or so ago, and now Supafest have postponed next week's event until November. The statement claims there was "difficulty completing venue contract arrangements for the Melbourne and Brisbane legs", issues which were exposed by Faster Louder yesterday.

SUPAFEST 4 will have new dates in November 2013 following the decision to postpone the event planned for Australia next week.

As had been reported on various forums over the past 24 hours, Dwayne Cross, Principal of Chase Records, has confirmed that there was difficulty completing venue contract arrangements for the Melbourne and Brisbane legs of the festival and, as such, he has been unable to proceed with the tour at this time.

While this news will come as a great disappointment to ticket holders and urban music fans alike, Chase Records is optimistic that all artists currently promoted on the bill will be available and willing to be part of Supafest 4 in November. The actual dates and venues will be released shortly.

“We want Supafest 4 to be the biggest and best Urban Music Festival in Australia and we want it to be here for our fans every year. This year we simply need more time to get it right. We are so grateful and fortunate to have the support of the Artists and I believe our Australian fans". said Cross

All current tickets holders are able to retain their tickets to participate in what will be an epic spring festival event as tickets purchased for Supafest 4 will be valid for the rescheduled dates in all cities.

Alternatively, ticket purchasers are entitled to a refund, should they wish to cash in their Supafest 4 Tickets. All ticket holders will be contacted directly by the company from which they purchased their tickets in the next 48 hours, with details of the revised ticketing arrangements and refund process.

More information will be made available shortly.
