Not so fast: Villalobos has visa trouble, cancels appearance

Posted on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 8:33 PM

The bad news: Ricardo Villalobos’ scheduled performance this weekend at the Movement Electronic Music Festival has been canceled. The good news: Richie Hawtin will perform in his place on the BeatPort Stage Sunday, May 30, 9 p.m. until midnight.

Villalobos did not receive his work visa back in time due to unexpected bureaucratic obstacles, to paraphrase the release from his press team in Frankfurt.

Hawtin's Plastikman live performance will be the headliner on the Vitaminwater Main Stage the first night of the festival, Saturday, May 29, 11 p.m. - midnight. After Hawtin performs a three-hour set on Sunday, he will join the sold out Voyage Royal: I’m on a Boat 2 after-party to perform with Magda on the second floor of the Detroit Princess. Rock the boat baby.
