Kendrick’s Fault? Festival With Wale, Kid Cudi, J Cole, Pusha T Canceled



Folks in New York City and Washington, DC don’t appear to be interested in watching Kid Cudi, Big Sean, J Cole, Wale, Common and Pusha T perform. In fact, people are so disinterested in the rappers that organizers of this years Rock the Bells Festival have pulled the plug on both shows.

An announcement was just made by Guerilla Union citing low ticket sales as the cause of the concert being axed. The following statement was released to HipHollywood regarding the cancellations of shows this weekend in DC, and next weekend in NY.

“First and foremost, it is with great sadness and disappointment that we must cancel the Washington, DC and New York City Rock the Bells dates due to lack of ticket sales. I, along with our staff, the artists, and all of the sponsors, media partners, local promoters, and radio stations involved are thankful for our supporters and the fans that planned on attending. It’s extremely unfortunate that we can’t complete the last half of the 10th Anniversary Rock the Bells tour. We did everything in our power to save the show. Unfortunately, the financial loss would have been devastating. This festival has been ten years in the making. I am truly sorry we could not produce the show for all the fans who did buy their ticket in support of,” Guerilla Union founder Chang Weisberg said in a statement.

Full refunds will be honored at the location where fans purchased their tickets.

Several of the rappers on the schedule were recently called out by Kendrick Lamar on a song titled “Control,” where the Compton rapper claimed he would take their fans away if they didn’t up their rap game.

    This has to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever read… Not only do most people that like Kendrick already like Cole, Cudi and etc(so stealing fans is pretty much invalid) but You do know Kendrick himself as well as the rest of Black Hippy were all set to perform at the festival too right?

    The tickets didn’t sell because they were expensive

      your absolutly right those ticket prices were out of control even though it was a two day festival the prices were just really high especially when some of the performers had shows near by around the same time for cheaper (i.e. Cole was and is gonna be all over the tri-state area this month)
