The Wild for the Night hitmaker was scheduled to perform at the annual music bash and its sister event in Reading, England this weekend (26-28Aug16), but his set was axed on Friday.

A festival representative has since insisted Rocky "will definitely still be performing at Reading Festival on Sunday".

Rocky wasn't the only rapper absent from the weekend line up - an ear infection prevented Fetty Wap from flying in from the U.S., while G-Eazy had to scrap plans to play the Reading and Leeds Festivals "due to unforeseen circumstances".

Travis Scott was also missing after having to pull a series of live gigs due to a delay in the production of his new album, while sibling girl band Haim dropped out of the two events in July (16) to focus on completing their upcoming project.

British rappers Stormzy and Wiley were drafted in as last minute replacements.
