Drake Cancels Wireless Festival Performance

First the BET Awards, and now Drake has canceled his appearance at this weekend’s Wireless Festival in the U.K.

Under doctors’ orders, the Canadian rapper has announced that he will be unable to headline the three-day festival in London and Birmingham as well as Denmark’s Roskilde Festival.

“To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won’t be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend,” he said in a statement.

“I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me. I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can’t wait to come back to make more incredible memories together.”

Kanye West, who was already on the bill, will now headline a second show on Saturday, while Birmingham will be treated to an extended set from Rudimental and some special guests.

Bruno Mars, OutKast, Pharrell, Wiz Khalifa, and Iggy Azalea are also set to perform during the Wireless festivities.

On Sunday, Drake canceled his performance at the 2014 BET Awards. As of now, he is still scheduled to host the ESPYs in L.A. on July 16.
