Australia’s hottest new hip hop festival is here – Heatwave. Originating in South Australia, where it burst upon the scene last year with Xzibit headlining the debut event, 2012 will see the Heatwave Festival go national.
Headlining the upcoming Heatwave is none other than rapper, hipster king and Kanye West protege Kid Cudi – best known for his hit songs 'Memories' with David Guetta, 'Pursuit of Happiness' with MGMT, Lady Gaga-sampling 'Make Her Say' as well as his own smash 'Day n’ Nite'. Kid Cudi joins the already announced Tech N9ne, D12, Obie Trice and CrazyTown.
Also added to the stellar line-up, in his first ever trip to Australia is Chamillionaire, who will be playing all Heatwave shows nationally. Winning a Grammy for his song 'Ridin' with Krazie Bone, Chamillionaire has charted hits around the world, including Australia, had Weird Al parody his music and sold millions of records.
Heatwave also promises to deliver big with VIP packages – including proper meet and greets with artists, autographs, limited edition merchandise and much more. Visit www.heatwavefestival.com for more information.
