Migos have cancelled their Australian New Year’s visit due to unforeseen circumstances.
The award-winning Atlanta rap trio were scheduled to touch down in the country later this month to perform at the rebranded Origin Fields festival in WA and spend New Year’s Day at Field Day in Sydney.
The good news: Both festivals have already found a replacement to step in for Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset. Replacing Migos at both events will be Sheck Wes, the 21 year old Harlem rapper who gave up careers in modelling and college basketball to become the second MC to join Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack label.
Playing his first-ever Australian shows, Sheck Wes will be performing at Perth’s Langley Reserve for Origin Fields, and The Domain in Sydney for Field Day. He will be joined by another new addition, 19 year old emo-rap prodigy Juice WRLD, who’s heading our way to play Falls Festival and East Coast sideshows.
