Drake has cancelled his appearance at Wireless Festival, citing illness.
While he was scheduled to deliver two headlining performances at Wireless festival this weekend, Drake has apparently been instructed by doctors that he is not well enough to perform.
The rapper released a statement through the festival's site today, regrettably announcing that he is too sick to make the date, or even fly.Â
Festival organizers have scrambled to make up for Drake's absence, calling on Kanye West to perform a second headlining set in his place at the London stage, while Rudimental will play an extended set with special guests in Birmingham.
Drake is still set to host the ESPY awards July 8th.
Read his full statement below.
To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won't be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend. I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me. I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can't wait to come back to make more incredible memories together.
