Rolling Loud Founder Walks Back Comments About Travis Scott Headlining Festival

Tariq Cherif, founder of Rolling Loud Miami, has recently taken a step back on a statement that went viral. In an Instagram post, Cherif stated that had Travis Scott headlined the festival instead of him due to the 10 deaths at Astroworld last year, Rolling Loud Miami would not have allowed him to perform.

On Sunday, Cherif took down his now-deleted tweet and responded to fan inquiries regarding his decision. According to TMZ, Cherif revealed that he did attempt to secure Travis for headliner duties but “it couldn’t work out in time.” Additionally, Kanye West was considered for the event but “wasn’t interested” according to Cherif.

On Saturday night, The rapper returned to Rolling Loud Miami for a surprise performance with Future. This marked his first appearance on a festival stage since his tragic Astroworld performance last November that left 10 people dead.

He joined Future and Lil Durk for their set, performing his 2016 hit “Goosebumps.” Throughout the remainder of their set, he performed some other songs as well as showing off his rap skills with Lil Baby’s help.

Though it remains uncertain if Kylie Jenner and her daughter Stormi made the journey with Travis to London, they did spend some quality time together in the city prior to his performance. The duo went shopping, eating, and just relaxing before TS took to the stage.

Following the tragic events at Astroworld, many have been eagerly awaiting Scott to return to the stage. He has been welcomed with open arms by fans and those hoping to score some of his merchandise and collaborations.

Recently, Scott announced his intent to return to the stage as soon as possible. He added that he wants to create an entirely new production for fans when he does, giving them something unique when he returns.

West’s headlining spot at the festival had previously been cancelled due to scheduling conflicts, and Kid Cudi was announced in his place. However, rumors began swirling that Travis Scott might replace West as headlining act at the festival, disappointing some fans.

Thankfully, a representative from Rolling Loud quickly clarified the situation by telling TMZ that Scott wasn’t banned from the festival but rather “banned from scheduling conflicts that would’ve prevented him from performing on time,” as reported.

Scott has had his share of controversy at festivals before; in 2013, he was forced to cancel the opening night at Coachella due to legal complications and inadequate preparation. This time around, however, there seems to be more clarity this time around.

This year he made a return appearance at the Billboard Music Awards and then performed at a Miami nightclub as part of Coachella’s after party. Additionally, he performed at Coney Island in New York during Independence Day weekend.
