UPDATED 6/7, 5:25 p.m. ET: A rep for Migos has denied speculation that the trio is breaking up and said that the group pulled out of Governors Ball because Quavo is tied up working on a film project, TMZ reports.
See original story below.
The group’s removal from the lineup was announced on Tuesday, with festival reps saying it was due to “circumstances out of our control.” Also on Tuesday, Lil Wayne was announced to have joined this year’s lineup as the group’s replacement. He’ll perform at 6:30 p.m. local time on June 10.
In terms of Migos’ removal, fans will note the recent unfounded speculation about a rumored rift among the trio, due in part to the release of Takeoff and Quavo’s “Hotel Lobby” collab under the Unc & Phew moniker.
The original lineup for this year’s festival was unveiled back in January and also includes headliners Kid Cudi, Halsey, and J. Cole. Others slated to perform include Jack Harlow, Playboi Carti, Clairo, 100 Gecs, Japanese Breakfast, Skepta, Roddy Ricch, Ashnikko, and many more.
Also newly announced this week is the 2022 edition of Governors Ball being set to livestream via Twitch. The official stream, presented by Levi’s 501s, will be available exclusively via the platform throughout the weekend.
The fest runs from June 10-12. For more info, including set times for all three days, hit the official site.
