The Astroworld fallout continues
Travis Scott will no longer perform as a headliner at next year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Scott’s longtime agent Cara Lewis was informed by Goldenvoice that Scott had been removed from the bill.
The news comes as more than 60,000 people signed a Change.Org petition to remove the rapper from the festival’s list of performers after 10 people died and many more were injured at his Astroworld Festival in Houston on Nov. 5.
According to Consequence, Scott even offered to play the festival for free, and was still turned down by the company. It’s unclear who will replace Scott, but Coachella revealed Swedish House Mafia as its third headliner in October.
In the weeks following the tragedy, Scott issued a formal apology and offered to pay for the victims’ funerals, but his offer was mostly turned down.
