Skepta & Sasha Cancel Coachella Performances

In a tweet from the festival’s account, Lollapalooza announced that the U.K. hip-hop artist would not be performing as scheduled. Chicago rapper Joey Purp is scheduled to take his place.

Skepta was scheduled to perform on Friday afternoon, July 29. Lollapalooza 2016 runs July 28-31 in Chicago's Grant Park.
