Goldenvoice, the folks behind Coachella are reportedly planning a Hip Hop festival they’re calling Lovers & Friends. The lineup is incredible and although it is reportedly “100% confirmed,” fans think it’s way too good to be true. Not to mention, some of the artists have spoken out and taken issue with being included on the flyer.
“A spokesperson for Goldenvoice stated that the festival is ‘100 percent confirmed,’ but added that ‘lineups are always subject to change.’ Since the release of the lineup, Lil Kim, Mase, and Twista have all denounced the supposed lineup or have asked to be taken off the bill. Lil Kim posted a screenshot of the lineup on her Instagram, with the caption ‘This is so FAKE! I am not a part of this.’ Mase, in the comment section of rapradar’s Instagram post of the lineup, asked that his name be removed from the flyer. Twista, meanwhile, stated ‘AINT NO DEPOSIT HIT MY ACCOUNT FOR THIS SHOW,’ followed by the confused emoji. Hours later, however, Twista commented yet again saying, ‘locked and loaded playin all the hits ya diggg,’ seeming to confirm payment. Snoop Dogg has shared a different version of the lineup that lists him as one of the promoters, and asking Lil Kim to get in touch with him. Two artists have been notably silent include T-Pain and Megan, who both already have concerts scheduled for that day respectively in Las Vegas and and Washington, D.C.”
Between the dream lineup and all the confusion amongst the artists, it’s easy to see why fans are fearful of Lovers & Friends turning out to be Fyre Fest 2.0.
