It seems the Heatwave Festival nightmare continues: first D12 fails to appear, now Aussie rapper Kerser has just pulled out of the festival after organisers promoted he was playing at a show he wasn’t booked for. Kerser was booked for the Thursday (19th), however he was promoted for both the Wednesday and Thursday shows, misleading fans.
Update: 5:14pm Kerser will now be playing tonight and promoters are offering the first 100 Kerser fans free entry
Kerser’s management stated:
Kerser has cancelled all future Heatwave performances due to being promoted on events that he wasn’t booked for and the promoters knew he was not booked.
Kerser also vented his anger at the organisers via Facebook encouraging fans to buy tickets to his own tour shows; his fans are the most important thing to him in the world and he’s been sickened by the Heatwave Festival’s actions.
Kerser: we’re not hitting up heatwave due to being promoted on nights i wasn’t booked for… no one eats off my name unless i eat first… get ur nebulizer tix from http://www.oztix.com . always keep yous in the loop dont i?
NSW Fair Trading is currently making inquires with the Heatwave promoters regarding their actions while running the festival. Music Feeds will keep you up to date as more info comes in.
