Post Malone will replace Travis Scott at this weekend’s Day N Vegas festival, taking over as the Saturday night headliner.
Travis Scott had been booked to co-headline the Las Vegas hip-hop festival alongside Kendrick Lamar and Tyler, The Creator, but he dropped off the lineup yesterday, Nov. 8, in the wake of the deadly chaos at his own Astroworld festival in Houston last Friday. Eight people died at Astroworld, and many more were hospitalized.
