Tyler, the Creator Cancels Headlining Performances at Lollapalooza and Outside Lands


Tyler, the Creator has canceled his headlining performances at Lollapalooza and Outside Lands. “i made a commitment that i can no longer keep, and that bums me out knowing how excited folks were,” he posted on X. “that is not sexy at all. please please forgive me or call me names when you see me in person. love.”

Replacing Tyler, the Creator at Lollapalooza is Megan Thee Stallion. And Sabrina Carpenter will take Tyler’s place at Outside Lands, with the festival citing “personal reasons” for the California rapper’s cancellation.

Lollapalooza takes place from August 1 to 4 in Chicago. The rest of the festival’s 2024 headliners are SZA, Blink-182, the Killers, Future and Metro Boomin, Hozier, Stray Kids, Melanie Martinez, and Skrillex.

Outside Lands runs from August 9 to 11 at Golden Gate Park. The San Francisco festival’s new headliners are Carpenter, the Killers, and Sturgill Simpson.

Tyler, the Creator was a Coachella headliner in April. He is due to headline Austin City Limits Music Festival in October.

When reached by Pitchfork, a representative for Tyler, the Creator offered no additional comment on the cancellations.
