Kid Cudi is set to headline the opening night of Rolling Loud Miami 2022 at Hard Rock Stadium on Friday, July 22, after Kanye West pulled out of the festival.
“We were looking forward to Ye headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2022,” Rolling Loud co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler said in a statement. “We spent months working with him and his team on the performance. Unfortunately, Ye has decided that he will no longer be performing.”
“This is the first time a headliner has ever pulled off our show and though we don’t take it lightly, we wish him the best,” the pair added. “We look forward to welcoming Kid Cudi as a headliner in Miami and we can’t wait to see what he has in store.”
The latest move by Ye comes after he previously pulled out of his headlining slot at Coachella in April, when he was replaced by The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia.
Rolling Loud Miami, which is set for July 22-24, is also scheduled to feature headlining performances by Future and Kendrick Lamar.
Playboi Carti, Lil Durk, Lil Uzi Vert, DaBaby, Gucci Mane, Lil Baby and Kodak Black are among the other artists scheduled to perform at the hip-hop festival.
