Travis Scott has reportedly been dropped as a headliner for Coachella 2022.

Travis Scott is still dealing with the fallout from the Astroworld Festival tragedy in November.

Though the rapper has kept a low profile in recent weeks, he recently sat down with Charlamagne Tha God for his first in-depth interview since the concert. Unfortunately, his attempt at good PR backfired quickly, and it appears to be having a significant impact on his bottom line.

Coachella has dropped Travis Scott from their 2022 lineup, according to KESQ, citing local reports from Indio and community services manager Jim Curtis.

The alleged decision is expected to be confirmed by Goldenvoice, the Coachella organizers, in the coming weeks, though it does not appear entirely surprising.

The deadly crowd surge reached a death toll of 10 in the past few weeks with 9-year-old Ezra Blount becoming the youngest victim. Rolling Loud Los Angeles recently announced that the festival would have an 18+ age restriction due to the events at Scott’s hometown festival.

In related news, the producers of CACTI beverage recently announced that they would be discontinuing the alcoholic drink. Though they didn’t mention exactly why, it’s hard to imagine that the Astroworld incident didn’t play a significant role.

“After careful evaluation, we have decided to stop all production and brand development of CACTI Agave Spiked Seltzer. We believe brand fans will understand and respect this decision,” a rep said.

However, sources close to the brand stated that it’s not being discontinued but rather, put on hold. “Travis was clear in his interview that he is not focused on business right now and his priority is helping his community and fans heal. CACTI asked AB InBev to inform their wholesalers there will not be product at this time,” a rep for Travis said.
