”Unfortunately Roddy Ricch is no longer performing today,” the festival tweeted.

No word on if he’ll receive a bond.

The Governors Ball has been struggling to keep scheduled artists for the festival. First, the Migos pulled out and Lil Wayne signed on to fill in. Then, Wayne canceled and he was replaced with A$AP Ferg.
