Lil Tjay

Lil TJay has failed to “arrive on site” at Leeds Festival 2023, with organisers saying they have been unable to contact him.

The American rapper was due on the Main Stage West today (August 25) between 16:35 – 17:10, but the festival has put out a statement on screens to say they’re currently unsure of his whereabouts.

“Unfortunately, Lil Tjay hasn’t arrived on site and we haven’t been able to contact him. We hope he will arrive soon,” the message read.

Reading & Leeds has not yet addressed the situation besides their update to fans who were waiting at the stage.

“I’m so sorry to announce that I can’t perform this weekend,” he told fans.

“I was really looking forward to coming to Reading & Leeds Festivals but due to illness I have to cancel my visit to the UK. I hope to see you soon!”

Reading & Leeds haven’t yet shared news of a replacement.
