St. Paul, MN – Fans attending the 2019 Soundset Festival won’t be seeing Lil Uzi Vert perform Sunday (May 26). Festival organizers announced Uzi canceled on them without explanation, no-showing the event once again after skipping out on a scheduled booking in 2017.
“Back in 2017, Lil Uzi Vert canceled his appearance at Soundset without providing any official statements,” Soundset said in an official statement. “This year, we chose to give him the chance to make it up to fans, but unfortunately, he’s just canceled again without explanation.”
They added, “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.”
Lil Nas X, creator of the hit single “Old Town Road,” and fellow rising star DaBaby have been added to this year’s Soundset bill to replace Uzi. The festival takes place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul, Minnesota.
The 12th annual Soundset Festival features a lineup that includes Lil Wayne, Atmosphere, DMX, Run The Jewels, Black Star, SZA, Tech N9ne, Royce Da 5’9, Tierra Whack and many more.
