CelebnMusic247.com has learned that the United Kingdom’s Home Office denied Lil Wayne entry into the country in a “last minute decision,” the Strawberries & Creem festival announced in a statement ahead of the rapper’s performance, Wednesday.
Lil Wayne was scheduled to perform on Saturday, June 18.
The statement reads:
We are deeply disappointed by this sudden and negative ruling. We have received very minimal notice, and the timing of the decision is of course upsetting for all involved – including Lil Wayne’s fans, as well as the festival team. Across the weekend, we still have an incredible array of artists joining us.
The Strawberries & Creem festival will be replacing Wayne’s set with a performance from Ludacris. Saturday ticket holders are also being offered free entry on Sunday or discounted tickets for 2023.
The Home Office provided a statement to Rolling Stone that reads:
Any individual who has been sentenced to a custodial sentence of 12 months or more must have their application refused.
Lil Wayne will no longer be performing at Strawberries & Creem 2022.
