Fans criticise Drake over reportedly short Lollapalooza set and cancelled live feed
Fans of Drake have complained about his Lollapalooza Argentina headline show after the rapper’s live feed was reportedly cut moments before he performed a 45-minute set.
The rapper-singer played on Saturday (March 18) and, according to fans online, only performed for between 40 to 45 minutes. Headline sets at festivals are ordinarily longer – at least an hour in length.
Additionally, Tracklist has reported that the artist’s performance live feed was pulled moments before the show began.
“Drake cancelled the broadcast of his show at Lollapalooza Argentina minutes before it started. Even though he was the headliner, the rapper performed for just over 40 minutes,” a translation of Tracklist‘s tweet read (see below).

“The people of #Lollapalooza would have to judge Drake since he is a headliner and has less time than someone who plays earlier,” one fan on social media wrote. “In other words, everyone is on stage for 1 hour and Drake himself, who is the headliner, only 45 minutes? I have never seen anything like this in my life.”
Another said: “Apparently #Drake @drake came to give us a hard time, it started late and finished 30 minutes early, from what everyone told me.”

NME has contacted Drake’s representatives for comment.
Meanwhile, earlier this month Drake and 21 Savage expanded their 2023 North American tour – get all the details here.
The run of shows, dubbed ‘It’s All A Blur’, is due to kick off in New Orleans this June in support of the two rappers’ recent collaborative album ‘Her Loss’. Drake previously teased the stint during a SiriusXM concert at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York City.
