A$AP Rocky has pulled out of Leeds Festival

The Harlem rapper had been due to appear at Leeds Festival this evening

Revellers at Leeds Festival have spoken of their disappointment after A$AP Rocky cancelled his appearance on the main stage.

The Harlem rapper had been due to appear at Leeds Festival this evening on a bill that saw him placed between The Vaccines and Five Finger Death Punch.

But it’s now believed that the rapper has cancelled his set due to ‘travel issues’, with the news coming shortly after Fetty Wap, G-Eazy, and Travis Scott all confirming that they would be pulling out of the festival.


However, a representative for the rapper has since told Pitchfork that he will “will definitely still be performing at Reading Festival on Sunday.”

Posting on Twitter, festival-goers have now voiced their anger at the cancellation, with some even calling for a refund.

One user wrote: “ASAP rocky not turning up at leeds, pay £240 to see acts I want to see and they don’t even show up. WELL PLAYED LEEDS FEST.


Another said: “ASAP Rocky and Fetty Wap both cancelling. What a fucking joke.”

The cancellation comes after Fetty Wap announced that he wouldn’t be appearing at the festival earlier this afternoon, and published a doctor’s note that confirmed he was suffering from earache and a respiratory infection.

Reading and Leeds Festival are yet to officially confirm the rapper’s absence.
