This weekend’s Rolling Loud Festival at Citi Field in New York saw several last-minute cancellations and a long list of other performance issues. So much so that 21 Savage – who was due to take the stage before the night’s headliner Future – tweeted that the festival would “never get another show” out of him. The rapper posted the news about 30 minutes into what was said to be a two-hour set.
The circumstances of the altercation are still unclear. Representatives from 21 Savage and Rolling Loud did not immediately respond diversity‘s request for comment.
According to unconfirmed reports from fans online, 21 Savage’s absence could be due to his late arrival. Rolling Loud attendees also tweeted that Ski Mask the Slump God and Big Sean were among other artists scheduled to perform but didn’t make it onto a stage.
On Saturday night, the festival had to cut A$AP Rocky’s set, prompting him to write an apology to fans via Twitter. On the stage, Rocky seemed excited when he explained that the festival had turned off his microphone.
“I’m so hurt right now! Last night was supposed to be a turning point in my live shows from old to new!” Rocki wrote. “I will take full responsibility for the circumstances that led to last night’s show being everything it was and everything it wasn’t.”
It’s likely both issues are curfew-related, as Queens Stadium has a strict 10pm noise curfew. Rocky was also reportedly late and was later spotted stage diving, resulting in him being stuck in a raging mosh pit.
