Field Day has lost one of its international acts but swiftly gained a new one. Plus another local act to boot!
US rapper Princess Nokia has pulled the plug on her appearance at the Sydney New Year’s Day Festival, with promoters assuring fans that the ‘Kitana’, ‘Brujas’ and ‘Tomboy’ tunesmith is spewing to have to cancel last minute due to “severe Tonsillitis”.
“She is devastated that she isn’t able to perform for her Australian fans,” they explain.
“As you can imagine we’re all upset with this news. However, our touring department have been working around the clock to resolve this and we’re very impressed with what they have achieved. Especially so close to the event.”
Yep, thanks to some ~quick maths~ they’ve managed to pull in a bloody ‘uge last minute replacement for Princess Nokia in the form of…
Man’s Not Hot himself Big Shaq.
And as well as the joke-rapping grimelord, organisers have also added local legend Running Touch to proceedings.
Naturally, this has fucked with the set times a fair bit.
You can catch the new timetable, alongside the newly updated lineup (which still features the likes of Flume, Vince Staples, ScHoolboy Q, George Maple & more) below.
