Lacy inclusion comes as UK grime star Stormzy has cancelled all international tour dates for the remainder of the year due to “circumstances beyond [his] control,” including his planned Australian and New Zealand shows.

“You guys have waited so patiently and I am so sorry that this has to happen after all these ups and downs,” Stormzy said in a statement announcing the cancellation. “I love you guys and I promise I will be back as soon as I can with a show that’s bigger and better than ever.”

All three dates of Spilt Milk have already sold out, but additional tickets will be available through the festival’s own resale facility from next Thursday, 6th October at 8am. Any ticket holders who no longer wish to attend due to Stormzy’s departure can apply for a refund via Moshtix.
