Lil Uzi Vert Cancels Soundset Festival Performance Without Warning Again
Uzi was slated to perform at the annual event on Sunday (May 26), but reportedly pulled out without warning. Festival organizers have released a statement about the Philly rapper's absence on Instagram.
“Back in 2017, Lil Uzi Vert canceled his appearance at Soundset without providing any official statements,” it starts. “This year, we chose to give him the chance to make it up to fans, but unfortunately, he’s just canceled again without explanation. We immediately began scrambling to fill the empty slot and guarantee an exciting lineup for all in attendance, and we believe we’ve accomplished that by adding not one, but two additional performers to the bill – one will have us all Goin’ Baby and the other will take us on a trip to Old Town Road.”
DaBaby and Lil Nas X will now take LUV's place. The lineup for the event held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds also includes Lil Wayne, G-Eazy, Run The Jewels, Trippie Redd, Beast Coast, YBN Cordae, Tech N9ne, Buddy and more.
Uzi pulled a similar stunt in 2017. Fans were pissed. "Fuck Lil Uzi on some real shit, can't show up to Soundset?" one person tweeted. "Lil uzi not showing up to soundset really put a hurt in my day," someone else posted.
In other Lil Uzi Vert-related news, the rapper recently revealed he is done recording his forthcoming album Eternal Atake.
