Cardi B has withdrawn as the headline act of Manchester’s Parklife Festival.
At the very last moment, Parklife has confirmed that Cardi B has pulled out of her planned performance which was due to take place on Saturday, June 8th.
“As some of you will have seen, Cardi B was forced to cancel some performances in May,” Parklife said on social media. “The Parklife team have just been notified that Cardi now also needs to pull out of Parklife this weekend. As such there will be some changes to the previously advertised lineup, stage splits and times. We are working on this currently.”
“We hare very sorry for the late notice but have only just had confirmation from Cardi’s team that she will not be able to perform. We all remain super excited for Parklife this weekend and cannot wait to see you in a completely transformed Heaton Park.”
They added: “The fully updated schedule will be available via the Parklife app from 7pm Friday.”
The news comes after Cardi B previously withdrew from 92Q Spring Bling Festival in Baltimore last month. At the time, Cardi cited “circumstances beyond her control after it also culminated in cancelled performances in Syracuse and Saratoga Springs, New York, but it later emerged that the cancellation was due to complications following plastic surgery.
“You know, I hate canceling shows because I love money,” Cardi said in a video posted on social media. “I’m a money addict and I get paid a lot of money, a lot of money for these shows … like I’m cancelling millions of dollars in shows.”
“But like, health is wealth, so I have to do what I have to do,” she said. “My breasts gotta fucking heal, and it is what it is.”
“We are very sorry for the late notice but have only just had confirmation from Cardi’s team that she will not be able to perform,” Parklife said on social media, adding, “The fully updated schedule will be available via the Parklife App from 7pm on Friday (June 7).”
