Las Vegas’ annual hip-hop festival Day N Vegas has been canceled this year. The festival organizers made a statement on the festival’s official Twitter page today. “We’re sorry to announce that a combination of logistics, timing and production issues have forced us to cancel Day N Vegas for 2022,” the statement says. “The refund process will begin immediately, and funds will appear back to your account within the next 2-4 weeks.” See the festival’s full statement below.

The festival was scheduled to take place Labor Day weekend (September 2-4) at the Las Vegas Festival Fairgrounds. SZA, Travis Scott and J. Cole were the scheduled headliners for the three-day music festival. Additional artists to play included Baby Keem, Jhene Aiko Summer Walker, Jorja Smith, 21 Savage, Doechii, BIA and H.E.R. .

Day N Vegas History

The first Day N Vegas took place in 2019. Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Future and 21 Savage. Last year’s lineup was headlined by Lamar, Tyler, The Creator and Post Malone. Other performers included Doja Cat, Snoh Aalegra, Ari Lennox, Jazmine Sullivan, Don Toliver and Lil Uzi Vert. Travis Scott was at first set to headline in 2019 but had injured his foot at a festival performance prior. Scott was scheduled to return in 2021 but had been dropped after the Astroworld Festival tragedy. Malone then replaced him. As more festivals start to happen, fans are now more selective.

Too Many Festivals?

With music festivals making their way back to the public, fans are becoming more selective with the ones they want to go to. In addition to the festival pass, there is the cost of airfare, hotel and general spending money for people to buy food, drinks and merchandise.

Notably, Day N Vegas happens around the same time as Tyler, The Creators festival Camp Flog Gnaw. With it rumored to be returning this year, it can make the decision of which one to go to. Other festivals happening this year include Outside Lands, Austin City Limits, Lolapalooza and Rolling Loud in Miami and New York.

Festivals are becoming more inflated and while the demand is high, it is reasonable to attend one or maybe 2.
