Listen Out announce two replacement acts for Stormzy
Following this morning’s news that grime star Stormzy had pulled out of his Australian tour, Listen Out have announced two replacement acts for this month’s festival.
Australian hip-hop collective One Day and Perth producers Slumberjack have both been given the green light as replacements for the event. Both are big local additions: crowds will get the chance to catch One Day before they head off on a huge Block Party tour of Australia, and Slumberjack have had a huge 2016, releasing their track Open Fire featuring Daniel Johns, a banger in the form of RA, and mixing an epic Diplo & Friends mix for BBC Radio 1.
Stormzy announced his cancellation on social media this morning, with all of his remaining 2016 dates – excepting BBC1 festival 1xtra Live – being cancelled. Listen Out is due to kick off tomorrowin Melbourne. Check out the amended lineup below.
