American rapper Cardi B has cancelled her performance at this year’s Primavera Sound in Barcelona, citing “promotional commitments”.

The 35,000-capacity festival said today (5 April) that Cardi B will no longer be appearing at the festival. Miley Cyrus will perform at the festival on Friday 31 May instead, joining Carly Rae Jepsen, Janelle Monáe and Robyn.

“We regret to announce that Cardi B will not perform at Primavera Sound 2019. The American artist has cancelled her appearance due to promotional commitments in the United States that cannot be postponed,” said the festival in a statement.

“If an empowered, ground-breaking, outrageous and controversial artist drops out of the line up… You have to replace her with another one, don’t you?”

Primavera Sound announced the addition of Miley Cyrus saying: “If an empowered, ground-breaking, outrageous and controversial artist drops out of the line up… You have to replace her with another one, don’t you?”

Cyrus will also be appearing at festivals including Glastonbury, Woodstock 50 and BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend.

Primavera Sound is offering a refund to fans with a day ticket for Friday 31 May.

The festival, which takes place from 29 May to 2 June 2019, is a signatory to the Keychange declaration, and its 2019 line-up is gender-balanced, with at least as many female as male performers.
