Rihanna Pulls Out from First-Ever Lollapalooza Colombia
As a result, the music festival has now been cancelled.
It has been announced that the first-ever Lollapalooza Columbia music festival has been cancelled because its headliner recently pulled out. The aforementioned leading act was supposedly slated to be Rihanna, according to NYLON. Initially set to headline this September In Bogotà, RiRi apparently stepped down from the opportunity over concerns of the Zika virus. Other performers included Lana Del Rey, Disclosure, Cage the Elephant, Anderson .Paak, Silversun Pickups, Matt and Kim, The Chainsmokers and more. Originating from Chicago, Lollapalooza has been expanding globally, having held events in other South American countries such as Brazil, Argentina and Chile. Although the festival has been cancelled this year, organizers are hoping to set up another event in Columbia in the future.
