    Why Are Artists Canceling Festivals In 2017?

    We have noticed an interesting and unfortunate trend in music: artists are cancelling music festival appearances or legs of tours left and right.

    The article zoned in on three prominent artists, so let’s take a look!

    First on the list was Frank Ocean. Ocean has cancelled three festival appearances so far this year due to Production delays. The festivals are the following: Sasquatch! Festival, Hangout Music Festival, and the Primavera Music Festival.

    Honestly, it took Ocean four years to drop his follow up to Channel Orange. Eventually, we got it, so let’s just back off here. Based on his track record, Ocean appears to drop albums in four year cycles, not including festivals. Let’s just take what we can get with Ocean.

    However, the next name on the list was eerily familiar, and comes in the form of our city’s own Lil Uzi Vert. Unlike Ocean, Vert has only cancelled one festival so far this year, and that was the Soundset Festival. Honestly, I don’t know why he made this list, as his reason is valid, he was ill.

    Additionally, the article points out Mac Miller’s absence from the festival as well, but if my girlfriend was involved in the Manchester Concert Bombing I think I’d choose them over a festival as well. Purely speculation, but let’s just say I have a hunch.

    Tyler the Creator checks in next, having missed his NXNE performance due to circumstances beyond his team’s control.

    Okay, this one is a little interesting, as it comes on the heels of the creator cancelling his European tour dates as well (Did he get banned?)

    Just kidding, but the next person on the list warrants three lines of this article, as it was Beyonce. If you didn’t know, Beyonce is pregnant with twins at the moment. Next!
    Interestingly enough, PNL, a France rap duo, rounds out the list with their missed Coachella appearance. The reason was visa issues. Hey, I said interesting, not invalid.

    Stay tuned for the latest!
