Why Goldenvoice just canceled 2022 Day N Vegas festival

Day N Vegas headliners SZA, J. Cole, Travis Scott and more artists must come up with new weekend plans for Labor Day.

Festival promoter Goldenvoice announced on Friday that it had canceled the three-day Las Vegas music event scheduled for September 2-4. A statement released on the festival’s official social media pages explained the abrupt cancellation.

“We are sorry to report that a combination of logistics, timing and production issues have forced us to cancel Day N Vegas for 2022,” the statement read.

A concert industry executive with knowledge of the festival confirmed to The Times that ticket sales have not lived up to expectations. A source also said the looming recession has hurt ticket sales for festivals, including Day N Vegas. The sources requested anonymity as they were not authorized to speak publicly.

In Friday’s statement, Day N Vegas said it had initiated the refund process.

The festival is an outstanding showcase for hip-hop, rap and R&B artists. Playboi Carti, Jorja Smith, City Girls, 21 Savage, HER, Joji, Jhené Aiko and Steve Lacy were among the other artists in this year’s lineup.

The final day of the now-cancelled event would have been rapper Travis Scott’s first festival appearance since the deadly Astroworld tragedy in November 2021.

Ten concert-goers died at the Houston event as crowds flocked to the stage to see the hip-hop star perform. It was the deadliest American concert since the 2017 mass shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival.

While he will no longer be helming Day N Vegas 2022, rapper “Sicko Mode” will perform in São Paulo, Brazil on November 6 as part of a series of upcoming Primavera Sound Festivals in South America.
