Lil Uzi Vert Cancels 2019 Leeds Festival Performance
Lil Uzi Vert has pulled out of another music festival.
Uzi was expected to hit the stage later this month at the 2019 Leeds Festival at Bramham Park in the U.K. According to a Tuesday morning (Aug. 20) Facebook post from the festival's official account, the "Valentino" rapper has pulled out of the festival.
"Due to unforeseen circumstances Lil Uzi Vert is no longer able to perform at Leeds 2019," the festival's organizers said in the post. "Because of the short notice, Enter Shikari will now take this slot on the Main Stage."
Uzi was expected to share the stage with the Post Malone, Stefflon Don and plenty more artists but it looks like he won't be there. This isn't the first festival Uzi has pulled out of this year. Back in May, the Philadelphia rapper bailed on his set at the 2019 Soundset Festival in St. Paul, Minn. for the second time in three years without warning.
“Back in 2017, Lil Uzi Vert canceled his appearance at Soundset without providing any official statements,” the festival's statement on Instagram said at the time. “This year, we chose to give him the chance to make it up to fans, but unfortunately, he’s just canceled again without explanation."
XXL has reached to Lil Uzi Vert's camp for comment. Check out the Leeds Festival's statement on the matter below.
