Travis Scott is in trouble once again, as the Astroworld rapper was recently sued by the organizers of the Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience festival for abruptly canceling his performance and keeping his $217,500 USD deposit.
According to reports, Empire Music Ventures claims that they hashed out a $400,000 USD deal to get La Flame to perform a 75-minute set. But after the deposit was paid on December 3, Travis’ team reached out and canceled the performance, set for March 2, without an explanation or paying back the deposit. The unexpected move eventually forced the organizer to cancel the festival altogether, announcing the news on its Instagram last month.
La Flame’s legal team has released a statement about the lawsuit:
Travis does not know anyone from Empire Music Ventures, and he certainly did not enter into any kind of discussion or contract with them. He has no relationship with the management company The Odd Group, which purportedly entered into the alleged contract. Any lawsuit that may have been filed against Travis and his company has absolutely no basis.
In case you missed it, Beyoncé and JAY-Z helped the Louvre set a new visitor record.

Due to a last minute cancellation by our festival headliner, we have no other choice than to cancel the 2019 Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience. This decision has not been an easy one, however, it has always been the upmost importance that we deliver an excellent experience for our festival guests. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to returning in 2020 bigger and better than before.
