Longitude have announced more big changes to this year’s line-up.

Festival organisers have added Pusha T and Kojaque to the Friday line-up, after Lil Uzi Vert pulled out.

They said: “We are delighted to welcome @Pusha_T and @KOJAQUE to the Friday lineup for #Longitude2019!”

“Regrettably Lil Uzi Vert has made the decision to cancel his upcoming European tour commitments, including his performance at Longitude this year.”

The news comes after Longitude headliner A$AP Rocky was reportedly arrested on suspicion of assault in Sweden, just days before the festival kicks off.

Swedish police allegedly arrested the rapper on Tuesday night, after he released videos of the altercation on Instagram.

There is no word yet whether whether he will still perform at Longitude on Friday night, but we assume no news is good news.

Chance the Rapper has already been replaced by Stormzy as the Saturday night headliner, after he pulled out of the festival last month.

In a statement, festival organisers said: “Unfortunately Chance The Rapper is no longer able to perform at Longitude 2019.

Refusing to disappoint fans, they added: “We are delighted to announce that Stormzy will headline the Saturday night.”

The news comes just months after Cardi B was added to the Longitude 2019 line-up. The rapper was meant to play at the festival last year, but pulled out after she announced that she was pregnant with her first child, Kulture.

Longitude is set to take place the 5-7 July 2019.
