DaBaby Dropped From Three More Music Festivals the Day After His Apology

Austin City Limits, iHeartRadio and Music Midtown Festivals dropped DaBaby from their fall lineups on Tuesday (Aug. 3) after his homophobic tirade at Rolling Loud Miami in July. DaBaby issued a formal apology for his comments on Monday (Aug. 2).

The rapper has now been dropped from six music festivals in the last few days, after Day N Vegas and Governors Ball removed him from their lineups on Monday and Lollapalooza announced his removal from the festival on Sunday. The 2021 edition of iHeartRadio Festival is slated for Sept. 17-18, where DaBaby was set to take over the Daytime Stage alongside Olivia Rodrigo, The Kid LAROI, Saweetie, 24kGoldn and many more at Vegas’ AREA15. Music Midtown is scheduled for Sept. 18-19, while ACL Festival will commence on the weekends of Oct 1-3 and Oct 8-10.

ACL Festival wrote on its Twitter account, “DaBaby will no longer be performing at Austin City Limits Music Festival — lineup update coming soon.”

Music Midtown removed DaBaby’s name from its lineup and posted the new graphic on Twitter with the message, “DaBaby will no longer be performing at Midtown Music Festival. Lineup update coming soon.”

iHeartRadio Fest issued the following statement to : “DaBaby will no longer be performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival Daytime Stage.” The festival has not made any similar statements on its social media accounts.

The Blame It on Baby rapper issued a formal apology on his Instagram account on Monday (Aug. 2) after he lost the initial trio of festival gigs. “I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made. Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important. Love to all. God bless,” he wrote in a lengthy note before signing off with his stage name.

The controversy stems from DaBaby’s July 25 set at Rolling Loud in Miami, where he told the crowd, “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up. Ladies, if your p—y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking di– in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”

His upcoming shows include a performance for Hot Jamz 103 Summer Jam in Kansas on Aug. 14 and Hot 97’s Summer Jam at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey on Aug. 22. DaBaby is repped by Andrew Lieber at MAC Agency.

LISTEN! Vivien Goldman new single ‘Saturday Afternoon’ key post punk journalist releases great dub pop work out

Cadiz Entertainment · Saturday Afternoon

Vivien Goldman was one of the key writers in the punk and post-punk periods and her 1978 single produced by John Lydon is one of the great lost classics of the period. After several decades writing and lecturing on post-punk in New York City she has returned with new material produced by Youth and with a gig at the IRL Gallery in New York on August 22nd. (https://www.facebook.com/events/362223238843848)

Prior to the digital release of her debut solo album on Youth Sounds / Cadiz Entertainment,  ‘Punk Professor’ Vivien Goldman will share a new single on the 6th of August 2021.

‘Saturday Afternoon’, produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Orb, Paul McCartney) and edited by the legendary Dennis Bovell, is a hint of what to expect from her eagerly awaited ‘Next Is Now’ long player, which features ten new tracks including recent single ‘I Have A Voice’. Says Goldman, “Quite a turn-up to be making my first album now, specially with my dear bred’ren Youth at the controls. I found I had lots to sing about and my voice has improved!” 

 

Album Pre Order: https://ffm.to/nextisnow

 

To coincide with the release, Goldman will exclusively perform a selection of album tracks with musical conspirators Dunia and Aram at two special live shows at the IRL Gallery in Brooklyn New York that commence at 4pm and 7pm on Sunday the 22nd of August 2021.

 Musician, writer, educator and broadcaster, her celebrated post-punk output of the early 1980’s saw Goldman acclaimed for the social comment on tracks such as ‘Private Armies’ – voted a top feminist punk song by Pitchfork. The accolade led to the release of Goldman’s seventh book, the award-winning Revenge of the She-Punks, which is appearing in seven international editions.

 

Her musical renaissance was prompted by the popularity of ‘Resolutionary’, the 2016 compilation of her early 1980s music recorded with people from PiL, The Raincoats, Slits, Aswad, Robert Wyatt and her own first band, The Flying Lizards. Goldman’s post-punk classic, ‘Launderette’ recently featured in HBO’s The Deuce and she has been sampled by the likes of rappers Madlib and The Roots, among others.

 

Emerging from lockdown and with the vinyl and CD release of the ‘Next Is Now’ album set for October, Vivien Goldman will announce more live shows in the States, Europe and the UK.
