Ye will no longer play at this year’s Rolling Loud Miami 2022, the festival announced.
“We were looking forward to Ye headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2022,” Rolling Loud co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler said in a statement shared with Pitchfork. “We spent months working with him and his team on the performance. Unfortunately, Ye has decided that he will no longer be performing. This is the first time a headliner has ever pulled off our show and though we don’t take it lightly, we wish him the best. We look forward to welcoming Kid Cudi as a headliner in Miami and we can’t wait to see what he has in store.”
Rapper Kid Cudi has been confirmed as Ye’s replacement and will be performing at Hard Rock Stadium on Friday, July 22, alongside the next two nights headliners Future and Kendrick Lamar.
Meanwhile, the rapper, formerly known as Kanye West, has been sued by a Los Angeles–based production and design firm that alleges non-payment for work on West’s canceled Coachella performance. Earlier this year, West was announced as a headliner of the 2022 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. After suggesting that he would not perform at the Indio, California event, West pulled out of his headlining slot just weeks ahead of the festival.
