Another headliner has pulled out of Earthcore

Another headlining act has pulled out of boutique festival earthcore, only a day after they lost two artists over alleged payment disputes with the promoter.

Los Angeles DJ Dirty Audio — who was locked in as a headliner at earthcore’s events in NSW, Queensland, and WA — contacted inthemix via Twitter this morning to say he will no longer be appearing at the festival:

inthemix has contacted Audio and his managers for further information.

As we reported yesterday, two of the festival’s headliners — Coming Soon and Phaxe — announced they would no longer be performing at the festival, citing payment disputes with the promoter.

“The reason for the cancellation is because the owner of this festival didn’t pay us until now, and didn’t even book a flight,” Coming Soon wrote on Facebook. “[This is] after many threats of cancelling us if we will not be patient.”

Danish artist Phaxe also dropped the news via Facebook, writing: “We are sorry to announce, that Phaxe…has to cancel the Australia tour for Earthcore, as the organizer did not fulfill the terms of our agreement.”

Earthcore is due to take place between November 23 and 27 in Elmore, Victoria, with additional events taking place in NSW, Queensland, and QA; inthemix has again contacted earthcore founder Spiro Boursine for comment.
