Drake cancels headlining set at Lollapalooza Brazil hours before performance

Drake upset another set of Lollapalooza fans when he canceled his headlining set at Brazil’s iteration of the festival. NME reports the rapper pulled out just hours before his performance Sunday because of issues with production.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Drake is without members of his sound and production team, essential to the realization of the Lollapalooza show in São Paulo,” translation of a statement posted on the official Lollapalooza account says. “Drake was excited to perform for his fans in Brazil. Unfortunately, this is beyond his control. Sorry.” 

Organizers are now issuing refunds to the concertgoers.

Drake’s canceled set comes days after the backlash he received for preventing a livestream of his nearly 40-minute performance at Lollapalooza Argentina, which some fans complained was shorter than a typical headlining set.

He also reportedly performed a short set at Lollapalooza Chile, according to NME.
