Drake has upset his loyal fanbase after cutting the live feed of his 2023 Lollapalooza show in Argentina moments before he performed.
On Saturday (March 18), according to Tracklist, Drake cancelled the broadcast moments before it started and only performed for 40 minutes. According to fans, those who are headlining performers usually perform for an average of 90 minutes. Many of Drake’s fans who were either at home or in-person for the festival took to Twitter to voice their disdain regarding the ordeal.
“The people of #Lollapalooza would have to judge Drake since he is a headliner and has less time than someone who plays earlier,” one user began. “In other words, everyone is on stage for 1 hour and Drake himself, who is the headliner, only 45 minutes? I have never seen anything like this in my life.”
Another added: “Apparently #Drake @drake came to give us a hard time, it started late and finished 30 minutes early, from what everyone told me.”
Finally, one user said: “Wow Drake’s lollapalooza Argentina performance was complete trashhhhhhh [sneezing face emoji], ended the set 30 min early, cut the livestream 5 mins before the show… [thumbs down emoji].

Lollapalooza will take place here in the U.S. at Grant Park in Chicago from August 3 to August 6.
Drake has added 14 more dates to his It’s All A Blur Tour with 21 Savage due to high ticket demand.
Following rumors earlier this year, the 6 God made the tour announcement official on Monday (March 13) by sharing a cinematic trailer on Instagram, and confirmed the Her Loss pair would head out on a 29-date arena run.
The tour kicks off on June 16 in New Orleans and swings through cities including Houston, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas, before wrapping up on September 5 in Glendale, Arizona.
In the spirit of debates surrounding who’s the G.O.A.T. in rap, Jim Jones recently gave the nod to the 6 God in a recent interview with Complex.
“I would say he’s the greatest of all time,” the Dipset member stated. “I would just give that to him. And I mean, there’s a lot of people from the beginning and people that invented Hip Hop, I know. But the greatest of all time, it’s a big statement, and the relevancy that he keeps showing year after year, hit after hit, record after record. Any song that he has put out has seemed to go multiple platinum. That’s never happened before in history.”
