This comes just hours after Uzi, a singer and rapper who uses they/them pronouns, publicly denied signing the concert. They took to Instagram on November 14, the same day the festival announced Nicki Minaj and Post Malone as headliners, and stated: “I never said I was playing loud. “I don’t understand why my name appears here.”
The festival will take place at the Hollywood Park Grounds in Inglewood, California from March 15-17 and will also feature Summer Walker, Sexyy Red, Don Toliver and, for the first time, Mexican music artists such as Fuerza Regida, Natanael Cano and others. .
Variety has contacted representatives for Lil Uzi Vert for further comment.
Lil Uzi Vert is currently on his “Pink tape” tour in promotion of their latest 26-track album, “Pink Tape.” This is Uzi’s first headlining tour since the “Endless Summer Tour” in 2018. They will close the tour with a special performance in her hometown at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on November 22.
