Festival with Travis Scott’s first headliner since Astroworld cancelled

An American festival that headlined rapper Travis Scott since the Astroworld tragedy has been canceled due to logistical issues.

The Day N Vegas festival, set to take place in September, said a combination of timing and productions forced its cancellation.

“We are sorry to announce that a combination of logistics, timing and production issues have forced us to cancel Day N Vegas for 2022,” a statement posted on the festival’s website.

Scott would headline the three-day festival in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday.

His co-headliners were SZA on Friday and J Cole on Saturday, and other acts on the program included 21 Savage, Baby Keem and Pusha T.

Ten people died when fans rushed to the stage during Scott’s performance at the two-day Astroworld music festival in Houston, Texas, last November.

Scott has said he wasn’t aware of fans’ injuries until minutes before a post-show press conference.

In May, legal files claimed nearly 5,000 people were injured in one way or another during the crush.

In January, hundreds of individual claims were combined in a single lawsuit alleging that Scott himself and other organizers, including Live Nation, were negligent in the way they planned and run Astroworld, following a motion approved by the Texas Judicial Panel On Multidistrict Litigation.

Scott’s performance at Day N Vegas would be his second live performance since the event, following a turnaround at the Billboard Music Awards on May 15.
