Pusha T, Lauryn Hill, T.I. & Others To Headline 2017 Soundset Festival
UPDATE: Mac Miller has announced that he is canceling his Soundset appearance planned for this Sunday. He apologized to fans in a tweet, but did not expound on reasoning.
Earlier this week, a suicide bombing in Manchester, England killed 22 people and injured more than 100 took place during a concert by Miller’s girlfriend, singer Ariana Grande. The couple has reportedly been together in Florida following the tragic bombing.
