“Combination of logistics, timing, production problems” – Deadline

The Day N Vegas music festival is canceled this year. Promoter Goldenvoice said today that the third annual event, scheduled for Labor Day weekend at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, has been canceled due to “a combination of logistics, timing and production issues.”

The 2022 fest would feature Travis Scott – whose performance at Astroworld last year turned out to be tragic – SZA, J. Cole, Playboi Carti, Jhene Aiko and Oscar winner HER

“We are sorry to announce that a combination of logistics, timing and production issues forced us to cancel Day N Vegas for 2022,” Goldenvoice wrote on its website. “The refund process begins immediately and the money will appear in your account within the next 2-4 weeks.”

Billed as Goldenvoice’s “premiere hip-hop and R&B event,” the three-day festival was scheduled for September 2-4. The promoter also said the meeting “continues to be culturally influential beyond the rap, hip-hop and R&B landscapes.”

Last year’s Day N Vegas made headlines when Scott withdrew from the headliner performance in the wake of the Astroworld tragedy, which saw nine people die in an instant during his performance. Post Malone took over as the headliner of Day N Vegas 2021. This year’s event would be one of several festival dates for Scott, who was also removed as an evening closing event at Coachella this year.
