Exciting news for Megan Thee Stallion fans: the Houston native will step in as the headliner for this year’s Lollapalooza after Tyler, the Creator announced he would be canceling his performance due to personal reasons.

Tyler, the Creator’s announcement

Tyler, the Creator, 33, shared the unfortunate news with fans on June 20. He took to social media to express his regret, stating, “I hate saying this but I have to cancel 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 added, “That is not sexy at all. Please please forgive me or call me names when you see me in person. Love.”

Megan Thee Stallion steps in

Reports confirmed that Megan Thee Stallion will take over Tyler’s slot at Chicago’s Lollapalooza, scheduled for August 1 to 4. Meanwhile, popstar Sabrina Carpenter will headline San Francisco’s Outside Lands from August 9 to 11.

While the exact reasons for Tyler’s cancellation remain undisclosed, it is noted that he recently headlined Coachella in April and is set to headline the Austin City Limits Music Festival in October.

Lollapalooza’s official statement

Lollapalooza addressed the change in their lineup on social media, writing: “Hot girl summer in Chicago! Unfortunately, Tyler, the Creator will not be able to perform this year. See @theestallion headline Lolla on Thursday, August 1st!”

Outside Lands also cited personal reasons for Tyler’s withdrawal and confirmed Carpenter’s attendance.
