Young Thug drops out of NZ trip for Laneway

Days after a warrant for his arrest was issued, Young Thug has pulled out of New Zealand's Laneway Festival.

The 'Stoner' hitmaker was one of the festival's major drawcards, along with Tame Impala and Chet Faker.

"Despite having his New Zealand visa, recent complications with the visa process for Australia means that Young Thug is not able to play any Laneway Festival dates in 2017," say promoters.

"We are deeply disappointed with this outcome as we have wanted Young Thug to play at the festival for some years now."
