Rapper Travis Scott’s first festival where he was set to headline since the Astroworld tragedy was canceled.

Nevada’s Day N Vegas festival was scrapped due to “a combination of logistics, timing, and production issues,” organizers announced Friday.

The music extravaganza was set to take place over the Labor Day weekend on Sept. 2-4 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds.

“We’re sorry to announce that a combination of logistics, timing and production issues have forced us to cancel Day N Vegas for 2022,” promoting company Goldenvoice wrote on its website.

“The refund process will begin immediately, and funds will appear back to your account within the next 2-4 weeks.”

Scott’s appearance at Day N Vegas would have marked the first time he would have performed at a festival since the tragedy at his Houston festival in November 2021.

Other headliners at Day N Vegas included SZA and rapper J. Cole, as well as supporting acts 21 Savage, Pusha T, and Summer Walker.

Day N Vegas festival is just 15 minutes away from where the Route 91 Harvest Festival took place in 2017, where at least 60 people tragically lost their lives in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

Scott has stayed relatively under the radar since the catastrophic Astroworld crowd crush, which led to 10 deaths and hundreds of injuries, though he did perform at a few private events.

The “Goosebumps” hitmaker played a set at a private Bootsy Bellows Coachella 2022 afterparty in April after no longer being on the music festival’s official lineup. He also performed at a private house party in Bel-Air before that month’s Oscars.

Scott claimed he was unaware that people in the crowd at Astroworld — where the victims who died ranged in age from 9 to 27 years old — were hurt or killed as he continued to perform despite the crowd begging him to stop.

He has only given one interview since the festival, asserting to radio host Charlamagne Tha God in December 2021 that he “1,000 percent” did everything he could to help dying audience members and reiterating that he did not hear their cries from the stage.
