UK Festival claims Lil Wayne has been “refused entry” to the UK by Home Office

Earlier today (15 June) Strawberries & Creem Festival shared a statement announcing that Lil Wayne would be replaced by Ludacris at the two-day event this weekend. According to the festival, “Lil Wayne has been refused entry to the UK directly by the Home Office in a last minute decision.”

“We are deeply disappointed by this sudden and negative ruling,” the statement continued.

Lil Wayne was due to perform at the festival on Saturday (18 June), and has been replaced by Ludacris.

Strawberries & Creem has offered Saturday ticket holders free entry to the festival on the Sunday, or discounted tickets to the 2023 festival.

The festival performance would’ve been Lil Wayne’s first UK show since 2008.

The specific reason for Lil Wayne’s refused entry to the UK hasn’t been revealed.
