Original Story (December 6, 2019): After a cancelled surprise performance in May, and two last-minute gigs at the Bussey Building in South London this past September, Tyler, The Creator will be returning to the UK to headline both the Lovebox and Parklife music festivals after being banned from the country in 2015. Besides the two smaller shows mentioned prior, this will be the first time the musician has headline an event in the United Kingdom since his four-year ban.
At the time of his ban, the UK’s then-Home Secretary Theresa May had used anti-terrorism legislation to forbid him entry and stated that his work, “encourages violence and intolerance of homosexuality,” and that it “fosters hatred with views that seek to provoke others to terrorist acts.”
Tyler, The Creator will headline Manchester’s Parklife Festival on June 13 followed by Lovebox in London’s Gunnersbury Park on June 12-14, 2020. Full lineups for both music festivals will be revealed in the upcoming weeks. Head over to loveboxfestival.com to sign up for pre-sale tickets now.
Tyler, The Creator’s latest project IGOR has been nominated for Best Rap Album at the GRAMMYs.
