Eskimo Dance NZ/AUS Tour cancelled

Eskimo Dance, the original grime rave, set up by Wiley, the 'Godfather of Grime’, has cancelled its planned tour of Australia and New Zealand in October. The Eskimo Dance tour was due to land in Perth (13th), Auckland (16th), Christchurch (17th), Sydney (18th) and Melbourne (21st), however, due to circumstances beyond its control, these dates will no longer go ahead.

A spokesperson for Eskimo Dance said,

“It’s with genuine sadness that we’ve had to cancel our plans. We wanted to bring the biggest ever grime tour outside of the UK to Australia and New Zealand, but unfortunately it has proved impossible to do so at this time. We’d like to thank all the fans that bought tickets and we’ll be working hard to bring the UK’s original grime rave to Australia and New Zealand in the near future.”

Anyone who bought tickets for the Eskimo Dance tour will be refunded in full and should contact their ticket outlet for further information.
