Dune Rats step in to replace Young Thug on the 2017 St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival tour

Visa complications have made it impossible for Young Thug to make it out to Australia for the Laneway Festival (due to kick off in Singapore this weekend), but the festival organisers have reined in old mates Dune Rats to take the US rappers place for the Australian festival events!

Says the band of their addition to Laneway: “We were STOKED when we got the call up to join the 2017 Laneway Festival line-up. Years ago these legends were the first touring festival to take a punt on us and we had the time of our lives. We can’t wait to do it all again!”

Refunds are available for a limited amount of time for those who bought tickets between 7pm on December 16th and 12:30pm, December 18th. The refund request window is open from now until 12:30pmJanuary 21st.
